Great pages...perhaps someone here can help me find descendants of my grand-uncle, who's name was Charles (Casimir) DEMBINSKY. The 1900 and 1920 census says that he arrived in America in 1889 and was naturalized in 1895. He was a Lithuanian (?) immigra
t, he was married in 1898 and his wife's name was Mary. In 1900 their address was 416 Popular St., in 1920 he was living at 329 Washington and from 1924-1944 he was living on West Coal St., all in Shenandoah, PA.
Charles and Mary apparently immigrated prior to his brother before 1896, kept the surname of Dembinsky and lived in the Shenandoah, PA. area all their lives. Charles & Mary had six children, all girls, named Mary, Helen, Anna, Delia, Margaret, Agnes.
