Anastasia was my maternal grandmother. She was born February 23, 1889 to Andrew Przybylski and Frances Rochowiak. There were seven siblings that I could locate, and Anastasia was the sixth in line. The last two siblings were twins, Eva and Adam. Adam had died in infancy.

Here is a screen snap of her branch of the family tree.

She married twice. First marriage was to Stanley Lawecki. They had a son, Daniel, born July 21, 1910 and baptized July 24, 1910 in St. Stanislaus parish.

Daniel’s baptismal record is transcribed below:

Stanley passed away in October 1910 due to typhoid, and Daniel passed away a month later due to cholera.

Marriage record from St. Anthony’s Parish for Anastasia Lawecka Przybylska and John Plenzler.

Anastasia caused me a bit of confusion while researching her. The first record I was able to locate for her was her death certificate, which states her birth as February 23, 1891. As I went further, looking into St. Anthony’s and St. Stanislaus parish records, I stumbled upon the marriage record for Anastasia and John Plenzler. The marriage record indicated that she was baptized on February 20, 1889.

Anastasia was widowed again when John died in 1936. Two of their children were grown adults by then; however, my mother was only 10 years old when her father passed away of stomach cancer. Anastasia herself passed away in March, 1946 of a cerebral hemorrhage.
