Do you know this Polish cake decorator?

Journal by AHJ

In the 1950's my grandparents sponsored a nephew to come to America from Poland. He was the son of my grandmother's sister. Their maiden name was Sokolowski. The sister married a man with the last name of Balinski. The man who came to America was Lesheck Balinski (Lesheck is Polish for Lester) While living with my grandparents he worked as a cake decorator at a local bakery in New Kensington, Westmoreland Co., PA.
Lesheck met a woman and married her. After a while, the couple moved to chicago, Ill. The Sokolowski's had family in Chicago. The men (a father & 2 sons) made furniture. They had a store where they sold their furniture they made in their factory building. I don't know if the couple went to live near the Chicago relatives or not.

The family Circle goes round and round and spirals up and out with each marriage & each generation.
