Thanks for looking at my request.
I am searching for information about Szimon/Sime Kukielka/Kukialka (1858-1898)and Chaja Kosowski/ Kosowska/Kossowski (1856-1930).
JRI Poland has a record of their marriage. Szimon was widowed and had a child from a previous marriage, but that child is not the subject of my search.
I am interested in finding records of children born to Szimon Kukielka and Chaja Kosowska. I have a DNA match with a woman whose grandfather, Joseph Kukiolki, came to the US in 1907. Ship’s manifest listed him as Chie Josef Kikiolki. He married Tillie Levine in 1921 - on marriage certificate 24858 his name is listed as Joseph Kuck. On that document, Father’s Name is Simon and Mother’s Name is Chaja. Unfortunately, a stamp covers his mother’s maiden name. But I believe it corroborates that he is the son of Szimon Kukielka and Chaja Kosowski. Eventually he changed his name to Kook.
I have another document requesting a military headstone for Joseph. It was requested and signed by a Benjamin Cook, who says he was Joseph’s brother. I haven’t found any documents about Benjamin that state his parents.
So I have two men who look to be the children of Szimon and Chaja but I can’t find data from the Jewish websites to verify. Most of the Kukielkas in my family came from Chmielnik, but this family appears to have resided in Sobkow.
Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
