My G-Great Uncle Rev. John S. ZYBURA was the first permanent pastor of the now closed St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Lorain. He was born in Poland and came to Ohio with his parents Jacob ZYBURA and Martha SCHULTZ as a child. Looking for descendants of families who had contact with him while he was at the parish.

Catherine Schmitz, daughter of John Schmitz and Maria Elizabeth Junglas, was first married to Nicholas Barnes, probably about 1870. They were in Ridgeville in 1880. I've been able to find more on their children--daughter Barbara married Michael Walsh, daughter Elizabeth married Frank Oaks, daughter Mary married William Rhoads, there was a son John, daughter Anna Mary married Leon Toddy, and daughter Celia married Nicholas H. Remaklus. The father, Nicholas Barnes, died in 1903 and Catherine became the second wife of Nicholas Minnich. She died in 1915 in Jay County, Indiana. If this sounds familiar to anyone, I would love to hear from you. I'm trying to find out more about Catherine's parents.

I'm looking for marriage records of James ROBINSON 1798-1871 and Ann McCardall 1805-1895. Family history suggests they were married in N. Amehurst in 1836 but I have no confirmable source information at this time.
