Research notes Searching for family of John Stanislaus Krupa. Parents were Albert and Agnes(Pluta) Krupa. Born about 1860. Lived around the Krakow or Tarnow region. Married to Catherine Ruda. They had at least one son born in Poland/Austria in 1884, named John Steve Krupa. John, Catherine and son came to America in 1885. They settled in the Bremond area of Texas and had a daughter, Apolonia, born and baptized there in 1888. Other sons were born to this couple in Omaha, Nebraska. There was Joseph, Peter and Louis.  It is unknown to me what happened to his wife Catherine.  In 1898, John Stanislaus Krupa, age 40, married Clara Otillia Litwinski, age 21, in Omaha, Nebraska.  They had 3 daughters together, Martha, Anna and Catherine. John Krupa died in 1906 in Omaha, killed after being run-over by a train.  Clara remarried in 1908 and died in 1923.
I wish to find more information about Mr. Krupa and his life before he came to America.  I do not believe his parents came to America. I do not know if he had siblings. If any of this info sounds familiar, I would appreciate hearing from you.  Thank you very much, Melody.
