      Family Notes



      Alexander is one of Adam Langiewicz’s younger siblings. When Rose Malinowski Langiewicz accompanied her mother, Anna, to Thorp in about 1927– Rose apparently did not go on with Anna to Chicago to see Anna’s sister, Veronica. It’s possible she was making a connection with Adam’s family. This is the only known return trip to Thorp of any family members since they left for Washington in 1901. Adam left to join the Army in 1895, Rose would only have been 2 years old. It’s unknown how he met Rose.

      Emily Airhart (Rose's niece) remembers Adam's sister Mary. The kids called her Auntie Kinish". She was always very good to the children. She used to always come to the haying potlucks at the Malinowski ranch. Emily’s mother, Soph, said Mary would sweetly say to those coming to the table "Eat all you want 'dahlink', I made it myself." (when she hadn’t made anything). Nancy Cuyle.
