Tuesday’s theme over at Geneabloggers is always an easy one for me. At least it pushes me to do something with the photos I have of Calvary and is a nudge to get me to post here. (I’m trying to post here when I can!)
Today’s photos are the graves for Tekla (Mruk) and her husband, John (Jan) Przybylski. Tekla is the daughter of Michal and Margaretha Plenzler, sister of Mary Mruk Zielinski.
Tekla was born in Poland (likely in Wiorek, Wielkopolskie, Poland–based on her parents’ marriage record) and arrived in Toledo at the age of 13 based on census data. She and Jan had married 19 November 1894 in St. Anthony’s parish.
Jan was born in Poland, and I haven’t connected his family to that of my grandmother, Anastasia Przybylski Plenzler. He was the son of Michael and Rosalie Przybylski and have little information on Jan other than this.
The grave is located here: Grave 1498, Range or Lot 32, Section 2.
I was able to locate a death notice for Tekla, published in the Toledo News Bee on 7 September 1932, transcribed below:
PRZYBYLSKI, TECKLA–Age 58 years, Tuesday, at 5 p.m. at Mercy hospital, beloved wife of John, mother of Michael, Aloysius, Stephen and Clement. Funeral Saturday, Sept. 10, 8:30 a.m. from the residence, 1461 Vance street; 9 a.m. at St. Anthony’s church. Interment family lot Calvary cemetery. Friends invited. W.K. Sujkowski.
Jan’s (John) obituary was published in the Toledo Blade on 29 October 1947 and is transcribed below:
John Przybylski, 78, died yesterday at home, 1461 Vance St., after a brief illness.
Mr. Przybylski was born in Poland and had lived in Toledo 55 years. He was employed at the Toledo Machine & Tool Co. until he retired 11 years ago. He was a member of the Union of Poles in America and the Firemen and Oilers Union.
Survivors are sons, Michael, Holland, O. and Aloysius, Stephen, and Clement, all of Toledo; four grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Services will be at 8:30 Friday in the Sujkowski & Son Mortuary and at 9 a.m. in St. Anthony’s Church. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery.
