My journey began with my grandparents, Nicholas Klopotek and Veronica Tomaszewska who are my bridge between America and
Poland. Both were lifelong residents of Portage, County, Wisconsin. It was there that they made their living as farmers; where Nick was often found playing the fiddle at local weddings and celebrations; and where Veronica ran a household of 12 children.
Nick's parents were Martin von Klopotek Glowczewski and Victoria von Cisewska, both
Poland. They were married in Glówczewice, on 18 Feb 1854, and
immigrated to the United States fourteen years later via Canada on the
ship, Liebig in the year 1868. It appears that they may have stayed in
Canada for a year or two before making their way to Portage County.
Martin's parents were Martinus von Klopotek Glowczewski and Katarina von Stypp Rekowska of Glówczewice,
Poland. He was the grandson of John and Suzanna von Klopotek Glowczewski of Glówczewice,
Victoria's parents were Jozef von Cisewski and Magdelena von Lenczinska of Glówczewice,
Veronica's parents were Rosalia Ochendal Andryczka, of Lubiewo, Poland and Piotr Tomaszewski. Piotr began his journey to the US in 1873 on the ship, Wyoming, and unfortunately his first wife, Rose Nitka did not survive the journey. He came in through the port of New York and made his way to Portage County, Wisconsin where he met Rosalia.
There are many wonderful, poignant, and comedic family stories and as time permits I will be adding them to the site.
Witamy! Enjoy your stay, please contact me with updated or corrected family information, or just drop a line to say hello.
