I'm looking for the whereabouts of the Polish general Pjotr (Peter) Michael von Sulkowski who stayed for a while in Allegheny, PA. He was born in 1785 and probably died in 1836.

TOWNSEND Tammy Townsend
TOWNSEND, (?Anthony?), born in late 1950;s likely in the area of Pittsburgh. I have substantial reason to believe I have an older brother, likely named Anthony, who is either dead or institutionalized. There may not be a death record, he may have simply "vanished." During a nervous breakdown, my father talked of burying hiim in the back yard of our home. Several years earlier, my mother "saw" visions of him on her deathbed. I have found a note from a priest in Louisianna congratulating my parents on my birth. It is dated a few months after I was born. It refers to "hope brother and baby are doing well". Except for mentions thirty some years later, I thought I was the first born! I am not trying to stir anything up: just understand a few things. I have a vague recollection of talking about him but in my mind I have him as my mother's brother, not mine. This memory involves him being dropped from a window. I am in Phoenix, Arizona and do not know how to access birth records in Pittsburgh. By the time I was nine or so, my parents severed contact with their families so I do not have access to their memories. You can call me TOLL FREE at 1-888-FANGMASTER (it is a work number). Thank you.
