Surnames: Kaczmarek, Katchmark, Kashmark
My g-g grandfather was Vincent (Wicenty) Kaczmarek (1854-1927) from Poznan, Poland. He immigrated secretly in 1873 to avoid the Russian draft and changed his surname to Kashmark. I'm told he had four brothers - Michael (Michal), Andrew (Andrej), Martin, and John (Johann)...and one sister, Mary (Marianna). Vincent came to Minnesota and married Victoria Drewicke. Michael and Andrew settled in the Scranton, PA area. Mary went to Detroit, MI. I have no solid record of Martin and John, but your John could very well be my gg grandfather's brother! Please email me at
