Andrew Malinoski Family Notes
Andrew Malinoski Family Notes
Obtained from Toni Malinoski Shuster. Note reads...

This is some information on Andrew Malinowski: He had a brother, Bartek, and a sister but her name is unknown. They were born in Cgylatyce (spelling?), Poland. Andrew at age 22 married Mary Piniaha age 20 in 1907. He served 3 yrs in the Austrian army in Yaroslaw, Dopkowice. He was discharged from the army but was ordered not to leave the country because war was very much talked about. We left on April 15, 1913 and arrived in St Johnsville May 20.

This is the address from there:

Bartek Malinowski Family
Powiat, Dopkowice
Poczta Boratyn
Yaroslaw, Poland


Notes from Brian Abeling: This note has been attached to both the Malinoski and Piniaha families - as the departure and arrival dates to America are significant to both families since the Piniaha and Malinoski families came to the US together on the same ship to the US in 1913.

The photos location is the family farm of RW and Veronica Edwards, located at the top of Bolster Hill Rd, just outside of Ephratah, NY.

Next in the back: Margaret Northover Edwards (married Raymond)
Next: Raymond Edwards
Right back: Veronica Piniaha Edwards

Notice the two dogs in the front left: We believe the dog on the right is Jacks, which belonged to the Edwards family. The dog on the left is believed to be Skipper, which belongs to Robert Abeling.

Exact date of the photo is not known, however, based on the dogs and the photos similarity to others - we are suggesting a date range of 1939 to 1941.

Joseph Piniaha and his oldest son, Tommy Piniaha

right: his father, Joseph Piniaha

Our guess is that Tommy must have been cronically ill as a child, as we believe the location of this photo is the Pawling Sanatorium, in Wynantskill, NY - as another photo was taken on this same day of only Tommy Piniaha. If we estimate Tommy to be 6 to 10 years old, then the photos date range is from 1924 to 1928.

Special thanks to Ross and Carol Primer who reviewed the photo and confirmed that the photo was indeed taken on Pete/Anna Battisti's farm on Kringsbush Road in St. Johnsville, New York.

Exact photo date is unknown, although the range is probably 1935 to 1942, as Katherine died while living at this location in 1942.

Photo is labeled "Mother, Helen and Eva"

Brian Abeling's Notes:
On the left is Katherine Yendryka Piniaha. On the right is Eva Rafun Piniaha (George Piniaha's wife). The woman in the middle is labeled as Helen. My best guess is that this is Helen Yokubait Korniat (wife of Tony Korniat). Thanks to Ross and Carol Primer for also confirming that they believe it is Helen Yokubait Korniat as well.

Photos exact date and location are unknown, however, the date range would likley be 1935 to 1942.
