Family Notes

 

Alexander is one of Adam Langiewiczís younger siblings.  When Rose Malinowski Langiewicz accompanied her mother, Anna, to Thorp in about 1927Ė Rose apparently did not go on with Anna to Chicago to see Annaís sister, Veronica.  Itís possible she was making a connection with Adamís family.  This is the only known return trip to Thorp of any family members since they left for Washington in 1901.  Adam left to join the Army in 1895, Rose would only have been 2 years old.  Itís unknown how he met Rose. 

Emily Airhart (Rose's niece)  remembers Adam's sister Mary.  The kids called her Auntie  Kinish".     She was always very good to the children.  She used to always come to the haying   potlucks at the Malinowski ranch.  Emilyís mother, Soph, said Mary would sweetly say to those coming to the table "Eat all you want 'dahlink', I made it myself." (when she hadnít made anything).  Nancy Cuyle.
