16, 1901, and settled in Brooklyn, NY. According to the Ellis Island Manifest, she was 19 years old, single, and would
stay with her brother in Brooklyn. It appears she came from Walieniz, Pozen. She married August Kornowicz we believe in 1905.
She was my dad's grandma.
My Great Great-Grandma
Agnes Badyna arrived August 26, 1902 at the age of 60
years old. We believe Agnes is Johanna's mother. She is listed on the Ellis Island Manifest as traveling to the states
with Wojach 29 yrs, Maria 28 yrs, Martin 3 yrs, Franziska 9 months, we are assumming Wojach is Agnes' son and the others are
Wojach's family. They are listed as coming from Kleinze, Pozen.
My Great Grandpa
August Kornowicz arrived in Brooklyn, NY- April 22, 1902 from Kamanica,
Pozen. He is listed on the Ellis Island Manifest as traveling with his wife, Franciszke 25 yrs, Marta 6 yrs, Joanne 4yrs,
Maryanna 2yrs, Ignacy 1 month. From what I can find from the Census Records, we think that Franciszke died. He married Johanna
Badyna sometime around 1905. He is listed on the 1910 Census as August Cornovitch and being on his 2nd marriage.
