|Stanislaus and Martha are Marge's Grandparents. Stanislaus was born in Leki Gorne, Poland, which was under Austrian rule at the time. Stanislaus and his brother Joseph arrived in the U.S. in September 1898 through the port of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They had several aunts who had settled in Platte and Nance counties in Nebraska and it is there they originally settled. My grandmother Martha was also born in Leki Gorne, Galicia, Austria Poland. Her father Thomas immigrated with his brother-in-law in July 1906 through the port of New York City. They went to Fullerton in Nance county Nebraska, where Thomas' sister and her family had settled. Martha, her mother Ursula, and her siblings immigrated sometime around 1907. Stanislaus and Martha were married on 31 Jan 1912 at Ss. Peter and Paul Church, Krakow, Nance County, Nebraska. They farmed in Nance, Platte and Holt counties and then moved to Omaha, Douglas County in the early 1940s.|

| John GALUS was born in Leki Dolne,
Galicia, Austria Poland
on 31 Dec 1875*. On 25 Oct 1900 in Leki Parish John married Anna KUSH,
daughter of Michael and Agnes FARCZAK KUSH. Anna was born 8 May 1879 in
Leki Gorne, Galicia, Austria Poland. Leki Gorne and Leki Dolne are
small villages not far from each other. They are one church parish.
According to the 1920 Nebraska census for John and Anna immigrated in
about 1906. In 1920 they were living in Loup City, Sherman county,
Nebraska. In the early 1920's they moved to South Omaha. John and Anna
are buried in different sections of St. John's cemetery.
I have traced John's family back through the microfilm records of Leki Dolne, but have not made a connection to my GALUS family as yet. I have more information about John and Anna on my Unrelated (so far) GALUS Families page.
*Correction: I originally had John's birth date as 31 Jan 1876. Closer scrutiny of the parish baptism ledger shows he was born 31 Dec 1875.

|Antoinette was a daughter of John and Anna KUSH GALUS. The 1920 Nebraska census shows that she was born in Austria. She was probably born in Leki Dolne or Leki Gorne -- the villages where her parents were born. The microfilmed records do not go as far as 1904. As I noted above for John and Anna, I have not made a connection to this GALUS family as yet.|
