DARN - Nope. Well - actually I don't know where he was when he first arrived. Could have started there as there are still Brunski's in PA.
It was a shot in the dark but the information matched up for the most part up to that point.
Thanks for figuring it out.
I sent away for a search of his marriage license today - that sure if it is going to tell me anything. I included a letter telling them he may go by a different first name. I'm "guessing" that he and his wife Anna were married in La Salle County. I found her today in Ancestry. Everything matched up with what I have including the fact that she was going to a town in La Salle County, Illinois. The 1910 census has them living in La Salle County. I can't seem to find either in the 1900 or 1920 census. Pick them up again in the 1930 census in Summit COunty Ohio - which is where they died.
Cheryl, a hint for finding the 1920 census.
Try one of the children's first names (Matilda,
since it's a little unusual) with no last name.
Born in IL, in 1904.
If the family is in Ohio, should pop-up pretty
quickly (since IL would also be unusual)
Add parent's names Char* & Ann*
Should work - fill in stuff you know, leaving
out chances for mis-spelling...
For 1900 a different approach may work.
Probably can't use children's names, since
first child, Annie? wasn't born until 1900?
Try only part of names followed by an *:
Cha* Bru* born 1876 +/- 1 yr
State was probably IL.
Let us know if these don't work and we'll try
You should end up with a few more immigration
dates you can check.
