Thank You ! Suanj !....That might be....l was told by my cousin that her Grandfather was born in roughly 1876 , but the obituary list 1881 , so l assumed that she found the wrong person....Also , of course there were shifting borders in those years so even though he was Polish , l question if he was actually born in what was Polish territory at the time .

I think I located the 1920 census image - the name is spelled seriously incorrect. The entire family is listed over two pages. States he immigrated 1901 and PA (typically means paper filed for naturalization).

from this census -- seeming to me that Katie arrived with some children on 1912, and because Joseph was in Ohio, USa fromn 1901, probably they was no Joseph children, and just the last children was fathered from Joseph...
If you are sure abt the children name, we must think that is the right ancestor...
