Unrelated GALUS Families -- Illinois

My GALUS family immigrated to Nebraska.  Early in my research two of my aunts said that a couple of my grandfather's brothers were in Illinois and Michigan.  Over the years I compiled information about GALUS families located in Illinois and Michigan in an effort to try and track down my grandfather's brother Joseph GALUS.

This page contains some of the miscellaneous information I accumulated on Illinois GALUS families.  I have no personal knowledge about these people, so it is possible I have made some errors in linking data from different sources to specific individuals. Please let me know of any corrections to be made --

Ignatz GALUS and Sofia nee                ( BOCHNIAK )

I found a marriage record for an Ignacy GALUS and a Mrs. Zofia BOCHNIAK at FamilySearch.org.  They were married 7 July 1919 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.  Ignacy was 33 years old and Zofia was 45. 

The 1920 U.S. census lists an Ignatz and Sofie GALOS, whose ages are 33 and 50, respectively.  There were 7 children enumerated with them.  If the marriage record and the 1920 census listing are for the same couple, the children listed would have to be from Sofie's marriage to a Mr. BOCHNIAK.  I have not found Sophie or children Joseph, Katherine and Stella in the 1910 census as yet.

1920 U.S. Census, Illinois, Cook County, Chicago Ward 11, ED 645, sheet 19A, 14 January 1920

Galos, Walter, son, age 4 0/12, single, born Illinois, parents born Galicia Austria
Galos, Rose, daughter, age 2 10/12, single, born Illinois, parents born Galicia Austria

At FamilySearch I also found a death record for an Ignatz GALUS whose information fits with this family.

Ignatz GALUS, died 25 Sep 1923 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois.  He was 36 years old, born about 1887 in Poland.  His spouse's name was Sophie.  He was buried at Resurrection Cemetery on 29 Sep 1923.  (Reference FHL microfilm 1877398)

In 1930 I found daughter Katherine listed as head of household.  Enumerated with her was a brother and a sister.
