My great grandfather Adam Ambrozy Pogonowski was born in Gumniska (Dębica powiat) in 1861. His father was born in Swięcany, and his paternal grandfather in Gorzejowa (Siedliska Bogusz parish). The Pogonowski family originates from Pogonów, east of Warsaw, in Mazovia. The progenitor of the family was Kasper Ogończyk, veteran of the Battle of Grunwald (1410). Adam's mother's family from Gumniska was Korus on her father's side, and Stawarz or Cwik on her mother's. In 1892, Adam married Karolina Elżbieta Głąb in Omaha, Nebraska, U.S.A. She was born in Zawada (Dębica powiat) in 1875. Her father was from Podgrodzie (Dębica parish), and her mother from nearby Gołemki (Czarna parish). Karolina's paternal grandfather Jan was listed in the baptism register with no father's name given. He took his surname from his stepfather Michał Głąb. Karolina's mother Anna Gawle Głąb (1844-1930) was the oldest immigrant ancestor of the Gloeb and Boganowski families of Omaha, Nebraska, U.S.A.
