George and Mary Faduck

Recounted to me by a relative, and confirmed in my great great grandfather Danylo’s obituary is the fact that he had a sister named Mary who married George Faduck and lived in Minneapolis, Hennepin County, Minnesota.

Mary Koszlak was born November 15, 1895 in the Austrian Empire (assuming Novosilka, but not yet proven). I have yet to find a passenger record of her immigration to North America. The earliest record of her that I’ve found is a Minnesota marriage to George Faduck on August 1, 1914 in Hennepin County. Luckily for me, vital records specific to Minnesota are available on Ancestry.com (Marriages from 1849-1950 and 1951-2002, Divorces from 1970-1995, Births from 1840-1980 and 1935-2002 and Deaths from 1908-2002). These same vital statistics (As well as the US Social Security Death Index) tell me Mary died October 9, 1981 in Hennepin County.

They appear on the 1930 census of the USA, living in Minneapolis’ tenth ward, 128 block, Knox Ave, house number 4543. George and Mary Faduck, ages 38 and 34 respectively, lived with their children: Annie (15), Lena (14), Stephen(11) and Elisabeth(3). Also living at 4534 Knox Ave was another family – the Abrahams (Michael, May and daughter Phyllis).
