Eva is the youngest child of Frances Rochowiak and Andrew Przybylski. Born May 14, 1893, she was a twin to Adam. Eva and Adam were baptized May 15, 1893. Adam survived only to the age of five months, passing away October 10, 1893, just months before his father’s (Andrew Przybylski) death.
Stanley was born September 2, 1892 in Posnen per his World War I draft registration card. He was the son of Frank Hejnicki and Agata Pawlaczyk.
It appears that Eva lived most of her life at the home at 1637 Vance Street. Adam’s burial record reflects this address, as does the 1910 census and the 1920 census. In 1910, she was residing at the residence with her mother, Frances Rochowiak, sister Anastasia, and Anastasia’s first husband, Stanley Lawecki. After her marriage to Stanley Hejnicki, she remained at the residence.
Eva and Stanley were married October 14, 1914 in St. Stanislaus Parish. The marriage produced four children:
- Leonard, born 1916, died 1973.
- Virginia, born 1920, died 1978.
- Delphine, born 1926, died 1988.
- Agnes (no birth date or death date found).
Delphine also married a Przybylski. Agnes joined the Felician Order (Sister Agnes Rita).
Stanley passed away August 4, 1934 due to heart disease and was buried through St. Stanislaus Parish. He was buried at Calvary Cemetery on August 8. His burial record through Calvary is transcribed below:
