Yet another Polish family from Oshkosh that I am researching...Looking for descendants or information on the family of John and Agnes STRASZEWSKI.

The Straszewski's immigrated from Prussia Poland in the late 1860's. They migrated from Dodge County, WI in the mid 1880's, and John and his sons worked in the saw mills of Oshkosh. In the 1910 census, John was enumerated as age 73 and working in the planing mill. Agnes died between the 1910 and 1920 census, but I have been unable to find either John's or Agnes's death records or obits. Together, John and Agnes had 12 or more children, some of whom remained in Oshkosh.
