Kubiak Family Roots

With mixed emotions back in the mid to late 1800's, several Polish families were busily packing their meager belongings in preparation for a long journey that would take them to the new country across the seas. After suffering what seemed like an endless string of famines, sickness disease and war tragedies, the Kubiak families and many others were taking desperation measures to try and provide a better way of life for their children.

The first wave of immigration to Robertson County took place in 1867 when 29 Polish familes were brought over from Prussia Poland by Meyer Levy. Among these 29 families appears the name Jacob Suchowiak, brother of my Great Grandfather, Tom Suchowiak (later changed to Snider). A second major wave of immigration occurred in 1877 when Joseph Bartula returned to Poland recruiting families to work the Roberts plantation back in central Texas. His return visit was preceded by glowing letters telling of the opportunities that awaited then in the land across the ocean. The civil war was over and the Indian unrest in the region had been settled. The relatively new state of Texas had millions of acres of uncultivated land, plenty of good water, lots of wild game and the climate was mild in comparison to their home in Europe.

Bartula had earlier traveled to Texas from Austrian Poland (Brzostek, Pilzno County, in the Diocese of Tarnow) in 1873 arriving at the port of Galveston in 1873. From Galveston, Bartula and a small group of Polish settlers journeyed to New Waverly and eventually made their way to the John C. Roberts plantation near the settlement of Bremond. Soon the Bartula family wrote letters to Europe inviting their friends and neighbors in the “old country” to join them in Bremond.

Founding of the Bremond Catholic Church-1877

By 1877, fifty Polish families had settled in Bremond, enough to start their own church. Their initial efforts at raising funds for the new church failed (most of the farmers had spent everything they had getting to Bremond). Fortunately, the Protestants in the area joined in the church raising efforts and a new church (Saint Mary’s Catholic Church) was born. The original church was constructed of wood and had the traditional Polish Catholic Church steeple. The first missionary was Fr. Joseph Mosiewicz. (The little wooden church stood until 1908 when it was replaced with a brick building built under the direction of Father Ignatius Szymanski who led the parish from 1908 to 1941.)

"My name is Barbara and I was born in Bremond, Oct 10, 1937. My father is Pete A Kubiak and my mother's maiden name in Pauline Wilganowski. Dad and Mom had 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls, Frank, Wally died age 9 mos, Leo, Barbara and Helen. Some of my father's brother lived in Chicago. Stanley is the oldest, Joseph, Albert the youngest and Dad.

Dad had 9 brothers and 2 sisters. If this is correct these are my father's brothers and sister according to age, Stanley, John, Mike, Frank, Joseph, Martin, Anton, Sauil (girl), Mary, Bruno, Dad and Albert.

Uncle Stanley was married to Stella, Uncle Joseph to Rose, Albert to Julia. We moved from Bremond to Chicago when I was 1 1/2 years old. It would make that around April/May 1939. Mom had 4 brothers and 3 sisters. My mother's sister also lived in Chicago, her name was Tracy and she married Matt Dec.

My grandfather, on dad's side was Miklus Kubiak, he applied for citizenship 1888 and was naturalized 1889. I am not sure on when he was born but it was in Poznan, Poland and grandfather was 48 yrs old when my dad was born, sometime in January 1861. Grandfather married Mary Kuzniarek and she was 41 yrs old when dad was born. Again not sure but around 1868. My grandparents on mother's side was Joseph Wilganowski and Mary Klos (Kloss). I am not sure on grandmothers spelling of her last name.

My dad, Pete A Kubiak was born March 26, 1909 in Robertson County, Texas. My mother, Paulina Wilganowski was born February 9, 1907 in Falls County Texas. Both of my parents have past away, dad August 6,1986 and mom February 12, 1976. I also know Bielamowicz, Hablinski, Szymanski, Okonski, I remember visiting them when I was smaller. I am just starting to get my parents birth certificates and hopefully marriage certificates. I have mine but not theirs. Hopefully with the little information I have, maybe we might be able to help one another out. My two brothers, Frank and Leo still live in Chicago, Helen in Tampa and I live in Utah. If you want you may contact me by mail at, Barbara Grygierczyk, PO Box 1160, Grantsville UT 84029. (435)884-6163. My email address is aquirus@wmconnect.com

Frank and Rose (Kubiak) Yezak

Alex and Francis (Kubiak) Stasky. Alex was the son of L. Staszewski, an early-day Bremond settler.

Got the following email from Dorris Stasky:

"Both of my grandmothers were originally Kubiak (my Dad came to Bremond on the Orphan Train, therefore my parents could marry not being related by blood). Unfortunately I waited too long to start asking questions about our roots and most of my sources are gone.

Grandmother Rose Kubiak married Frank Yezak and grandmother Frances married Alex Stasky. Alex is the son of the L. Staszewski listed in the original Polish group who settle in Bremond.

Not sure where we fit on the Kubiak tree as yet, but I'm trying to find out. Again, wonderful informative website you have".
