Looking for the whereabouts of Gussie (WARSHAFSKY, WHARSHOWSKI) nee HOCH from Dynow, Galicia (Aug. 22, 1891-Apr. 8, 1957). Gussie (Gietl) emigrated from Dynow, arriving in NYC July 7, 1903 with her mother and five siblings. I have NY census records of the family living on the lower east side for 1905, 1925 and 1930. Under the 1925 census she is listed as Gussie WARSHAFSKY. Her marriage license shows marriage to Louis WARSHOWSKY on May 11, 1912. I wasn't able to locate censuses for 1915 or 1940 under her maiden or married name. On the 1930 census she is shown as naturalized,, but I did not find a naturalization record for her. I have a copy of her death certificate for April 8, 1957 from St. Lawrence State Hospital in Ogdensburg, NY. Cause of death was bronchi-pneumonia due to arterial sclerotic heart disease. In column listed as 'length of stay in town/city' is 2 days. It is a mystery to me that Gussie was nearly 300 miles from NYC, where I guessed she still lived up until her death. She is shown as 'separated' in the marriage/divorce/widowed column, with husband 'unknown.' If anyone can help me find out what happened to Gussie between 1930 and her death I would be grateful.
