Where is 'Kirchsmequ'? #general


Alan Hale <alanmhale@...>
 

I have found a couple of copies of my great grandfathers naturalization record.
The clearest (the original! ggggrrr) disappeared when my grandmother passed away.
As near as my fellow searchers and I can tell this is the location:

Kirchsmequ, Russia

Does this sound like anything possible? My great grandfather was never educated,
so i'm not sure he knew how to speel correctly. In family oral tradition (handed
down >from him) he came >from Lithuania (supposed Cozna/Kosno, we believe Kovno),
but on his naturalization papers you see above what he put. On 2 US Census
records he lsits being >from Russia-Poland.

Thank you for your time, energy and help
