Glad to hear from you. We must be about 5th cousins. I just know what my grandmother said about Rose and Katherine: that they were her cousins. Probably first, given that their father was Franciszek Rzepka, and my great-grandmother was Juliana Rzepka, most likely siblings. Need to do more research on this.
I have been researching the 1920 census but can't seem to locate the Hilbroner family. Stanley and Rose were living in Canonsburg in 1918-re:WWI records.
When did they move to Chicago? We heard that Stanley was originally from there.
I have started listing the Krakowiak family on Ancestry.com, and have put in some of the Rzepka information. Slow going. How is Ed doing? Haven't heard from him in a while.

Thanks again for answering my message board
