    Notes 
    • Peter Gliniecki.

      Peter Gliniecki left Danzig, Germany (now Gdansk, Poland) or at least that port, and traveled to the U.S in the mid-late 1800's. He claimed to be some sort of Polish lord and large landowner. He was born around 1860-70 (does anyone know his birthday or at least year of birth?) in Poland or in what may have been called Prussia and died in 1914 near Eau Plaine, Wisconsin (WI) in the United States. He married the former Martha Piotrowski in 1891 in the United States.

      Martha was born May 11, 1874, at Polonia, WI. After their marriage the couple lived at Ashland, WI until 1896, when they came to the town of Eau Pleine and eventually to the town of McMillan, Marathon Co where they resided until their deaths. They had seven daughters and two sons listed as follows:

      Helen (Mrs. Adam Gawlikoski, born in 1897); ______ name? (Mrs. Kate Schafrick); Anastasia (Mrs. Myron Zygarlicke and my grandmother; 1908-2000, Marshfield); _______ name? (Mrs. Edward Moberg); ________ name ? (Mrs. James Mankee); ______ name ? (Mrs. Angeline Harpst, Chicago, Ill).; _______ name ? Mrs. Frank Gostomiski, Thorp, WI,); and two sons: John Gliniecki, town of Eau Pleine, WI and Cecil Gliniecki, Marshfield, WI.

      Peter Gliniecki was very well educated for that time and he apparently had to leave Poland sometime between 1880-1890 at the age of 20-30 because of some sort of crime he may have been guilty of (as legend would have it). He may have been a stowaway. He died early, in his 40-50's in Wisconsin. He always told people he was going back to Poland someday to reclaim his estate. He was well educated for his time which added credence to his story about being someone of position and standing in Poland. He was very Roman Catholic, however, his sisters told my grandmother (his wife) that they had suspicians that Gliniecki may have been part Jewish. I believe there are still Gliniecki's living near Stevens Point, WI or in Portage, Co and in Chicago. Telephone records and surname databases also show Gliniecki's living in Baltimore, New Jersey, and Michigan but I am not sure if they are related to Peter.

      I found birth records on the web showing some Gliniecki's born in the mid-late 1800's in the Kreis Schlochau (sort of like a county) region in a city once called Borcycskowo, in then West Prussia and now Borzyszkowy or Chojnice, Poland (I think?). I have also found some birth records of Gliniecki?s born in Heidemuhl in the same time period in then West Prussia, now Borowy Mlyn in Poland. I have not been able to find these cities or villages on a current or old map of Poland or Germany. These records are listed below. If you click on the hypertext, you should be able to go to the websites where these records are housed.

      As I said before, if you have any additional information on Peter Gliniecki please feel free to send it to me and I will do likewise. My other great grandfather was also a Peter. His name was Peter Zygarlicke and if you think Gliniecki is hard to track down, this Zygarlicke is just as hard.

      Thanks for you time and interest and hopefully we will find out Peter Gliniecki's home town or village and other interesting facts, sometime this millenium.
