Kalixty was a brother to my grandmother, Helena Mierzejewski. Born December 12, 1886 in Borowce to Stanislaw Mierzejewski and Anna Keijewski, he was the third of four children born to Stanislaw and Anna. Children born to Stanislaw and Anna were Wladimir (Walter), Jan (John M.), Kaliksty, and Helena.

It seems as if Kalixty was never married and records that document his life are scarce. I have not yet located his immigration records nor have I found any World War I draft records. However, I did locate Kalixty on the 1920 census living with his brother Walter (Wladimir) and his wife, Bertha, at 1060 Hamilton in Toledo. This is less than one mile from Jan/John who was living at 1763 Buckingham.

The 1920 census reflects Walter (Wladimir) and Bertha were living at 1060 Hamilton with their daughters Sophia, Ceslawa (Charlotte), and Hattie (Hedwig) as well as Kalixty and another brother, Edward.

Per the 1920 census, Kalixty arrived in the US about 1911.

Kalixty died September 27, 1941 per his Ohio death certificate. He was buried through St. Hyacinth Church on October 1, 1941 and interred in Calvary Cemtery.
