Volume 3 of Lithuanian Religious life in the United States by Rev. William Wolkovich-Valkavicius has a listing for Father Simon Rakauskas.

It lists his birth date as March 16, 1895, Chicago. he was ordained a Benedictine in 1923. He died September 26, 1954 at Peru, Illinois.

The Y spelling for Yonikas is a phonetic spelling. The correct Lithuanian spelling would use "J" since in Lithuanian, the "J" is pronounced sounding like "Y".
