Marie Jura Taylor
Dec 2 1907 - Dec 14 1995
coming soon I hope
Believe this to be Gram Marie, Her sisters Apalonia(Lena) (Middle) , and Lucia (Lou) (Left). Along with My Two Second Cousins
Lena and Bill Slawiak's girls.  Regina, Malinowski, and Delores Stankiewicz
We find Gram Marie imigrating to the U.S.  with her mother Teresa from Bujakow Poland.

Found a Teresa Jura born about 1872,
her residence was Bujakow Poland who left from somewhere on the ship Prinz Adalbert on the 21 of may 1912, and arrived at ellis island then at some point to Philadelphia Penn with her three daughters Apolonia born about 1903,
Lucia born about 1907, and
Marya Jura born about 1907.

the  U.S.  1920 census finds the Juras, in Erie New York, Buffalo Ward 5.

The three girls are shown to have been born in Galicia .  This area was originally called Malipolska ( Little Poland) But in  1772 Austria annexed this area and renamed it Galicia.

Bujakow is about 50 miles NW of Krakow.

Marie's father is shown as John ( Jan) also shown as being born in Galicia.  By 1920 they own the home they live in.
My Auntie (Terri) Has added the extras to this ever growing and for me fascinating story:
Wow you are a researcher par excellence.  That looks like the right info except that that Mom (Marie) and Aunt Lou (Lucia) were born Dec. 2, 1907, so they were 5 years old in 1912.  Aunt Lena (Apalonia) was about 10 years older than Mom and Aunt Lou; her birthday was in August. Aunt Lena married William (Uncle Bill) Slawiak and had two daughters.  In the photograph of them sitting on the sofa together (left to right, Lou, Lena and Marie);  the women seated on the floor in front of them are cousins Barbara (Slawiak) Malinowski and Dolores (Slawiak) Stankiewicz.
Barbara Malinowski wrote to me at Easter this year and shared more info with me that I hadn't known.  Grandpa Jura was named Jan.  He traveled to and from Poland to US 3 times to earn "his fortune."  The third time he came to the US, he wrote back to his wife that he was tired to trying to eke out a living on a farm and he wasn't coming back to Poland.  He told Teresa to sell the farm and come to America.  They had enough money to pay for a cabin on the ship so they didn't have to travel in steerage.  They did indeed come through Ellis Island and I have the certificate with Mom's name on it.  Her name is on "the wall" of immigrants at Ellis Island.  They settled in Buffalo New York at 60 Spann St.  Aunt Lena went to school through the 5th grade, so I suppose until she was 18.  Aunt Lou and Mom graduated from high school which was quite unusual in those days especially for girls; and they caused quite a sensation being twins.
At the time and probably still there was a large Polish community in Buffalo.  There is a Polish website that is pretty interesting.
As we look back into the past in search of this or that.  We oft forget that life was little different from what we know.  We try to shoe horn what we know with the documents of the past, but should we not think of the story. A family man in search of fortune in the land of plenty travels to and from his home many times. Traversing countries mountains and seas, but he longs to call, and does, for his dearest loved ones to be by his side. Could we not imagine them in an instant hurrying , through the throngs of Ellis but, with pangs of  heart for parents and home lingering. Shall we not imagine the great love Jan had for Teresa and  would he not if he could allow her heart to swell on journeys home, to family and friends with stories of america only to return on ship. To one day settle in the new land of opportunity
