Original ukrainian surname of 'Lysyanyuk' became' Lesney' upon immigration to Canada and then, the states.
Name originates from kozak/cossack from Lysyanka who settled in the village of Sabadash in 1640s.
I am the grand-daughter of Prokofi Lysyanyuk (b.1893) in Sabadash, Ukraine, Russian Empire (d.1980 USA).
Any church records and/or information will be appreciated.
Disregard any reference to surname 'Lysyanney' or similar from Sabadash as the spelling is incorrect. Thank you, k
