Jez is a fairly common name in Chicopee and Chicopee Falls, MA. It is believed that a large component of the Polish population in that area mistakenly thought that they had arrived at Chicago when they heard Chicopee.

Anyway. Catharina Jez married Stanislaus Cebula in 1890 in Poland. He was born in 1862 in Mielec, Poland, She was born in 1865 in Mielec, Poland.

Immigration was 1902/7 for him, 1907/9 for her (census records are hard to read). 4 known children, including my G Grandmother, Marianna Cebula, born 12 Mar 1891 in Mielec, Poland.

Some of this information was gleaned from census records, some from Marianna's baptismal record, which I had in my hand before she died.

Anyone know these people, or even where Mielec, Poland is?
