Helen born in 1924, Casmir born in 1926, Edward born in 1928 and Adeline born in 1929.

There is a Baltimore Passenger List, 1892-1948 for a Konstanti Tomczyk. He arrived on January 6, 1910 on board the S.S. Cassel. He was 18 years old and single at the time. His race was Polish and his last residence was listed as Krasnybor, Suwalki, Russia.
His nearest relative in his native land was his mother Frankza Tomczyk. His destination was 914 West 32nd Place in Chicago where he was going to join his cousin Bronislaw/Bruno Wojewnik.
Konstanti was traveling with a cousin Boleslaw Wojewnik from Lebiedzy (probably Lebiedzin), Suwalki, Russia. Boleslaw’s brother, Bronislaw/Bruno Wojewnik, was their host in Chicago.
There was annotation of the ship’s manifest that Konstanty had applied for his citizenship papers in the Chicago District on 3/11/1939, application number 217778.
Konstanty immigrated just in time to be included in the 1910 census. He and his traveling companion are both listed as boarders in the home of their host, Bronislaw/Bruno Wojewnik.
You should validate all of this information through family and other vital records, i.e., U.S. Naturalization documents, marriage registers, Social Security applications, etc.
