In Reply to: Kyc Family of Hartford by Leopold Wojcik of 56445

There's a death record for a Grego KYC d. 31-July-1957 in Newington, Hartford Co, CT. His wife's name was Mary. His residence was Hartford, Hartford Co, CT. he was born abt. 1881.

There's a WWII draft registration for Gregory KYC b. 12-Mar-1881 in Poland, registered in Hartford, CT. Wife's name was Mary.

There's a WWI draft registration that gives the same birth date with a birth place of Austria/Galicia. He lists his nearest relative as Mariana KYC of 11 Ellery St., Hartford. This is the same as his own address.

In 1940 he was living in Hartford, CT, age 59, wife Mary, age 61, both born Poland. Daughters Esther, 22,and Agnes, 20, married daughter Sophie ERRICO, 25, and grandson John ERRICO, 7.

In 1930 they were in the same location. Gregory give his own birthplace as Poland, but both his parents as Austria-Poland. He immigrated in 1906. Four daughters at home: Katherine, 22, Sophie, 15, Esther, 13, and Agnes, 10.

There's an Ellis Island record of the arrival of Grzegorz KYC, ethnicity Austria-Polish, arrived 10-Apr-1906 aboard the Grosser Kurfurst out of Bremen. It's hard to read but it looks like he was going to his brother Jan KYC in Hartford.

I can't find an immigration record for Jozefa.

There's a WWI draft card for her husband, Lawrence WOJCIK which gives his birth date as 10-Aug-1875 and lists he as Mrs. Josephine WOJCIK of 3960 Pulaskia Ave, Philadelphia.

Do you have the date of her death? I am having trouble finding census records for her.

Here's an obituary for Gregory's daughter, Agnes, which lists a lot of living relatives:
