Anyone descended or have information on the family of Joseph URBANOWSKI/URBAN/ERBAN (1831-1912) and his wife Frances (1837-1921) of Oshkosh?

The Urbanowski family moved from Dodge Co. to Oshkosh in the 1880's, along with several other related Polish families. They may have worked at MacMillan's Lumber mill. Two of their sons, Frank Urban (1870-1939) and Michael Urban (1875-post 1938)remained in the Oshkosh area. It is said that some of Michael's sons served in WWII, and that a VFW post was named in their memory.

There is another Urban family in Menasha, but not sure if they are related or not.
