Yes, I'm sure it is a surprise!

I hope I haven't confused you. My great grandparents were Zachary Charles and Justina (Trusz) Kurko. Zachary Charles Kurko was born 06 September 1878 in Dąbrowica, Kuryłówka, Leżajsk, Podkarpackie, Poland, a son of Joannis and Fema (Fidurko) Kurko. My great grandmother, Justina (Trusz) Kurko was born 10 October 1886 in the same village, a daughter of Dimitri and Eva (Jarosz) Trusz. Zachary immigrated to the United States on the "Blucher" in 1902. Here is the link to his manifest:

...a "Hanka" Trusz appears next to him on the manifest. I think this is my great grandmother, Justina Trusz who he later married on 22 July 1905 in Dillonvale, Jefferson County, Ohio. Hanka states that she is 19, but I think she was 16. 1886 has been the only year I've seen as her birth year, but I sure hope I can eventually find some birth/baptism records in the old country.

Your grandfather's first wife, Justina Trusz Penkala is a different Justina ...

Are these her memorials?:

Also, is this her immigration manifest?:

Please see my query here:

Hope we can make some connections!
