Journals and Posts
Through Ancestry.com, and other sites, I found out infor-
mation on my grandfather. I called the cementary just to
see if he was buried there, and he is at the same
cemetary as my parents, I even found his marker. Now I
just need to find my grandmother, I found no information
after the 1930's. on Justyna Fosty. Might be Staphanic.
Looking for information on the FOSTY family. (Was mis-spelled
in the 1930 census as FORTY). There is a step-dad with the
name of STEPANIK. While looking up information on the
family, there are siblings I do not reconize:
In the 1920 Census- Jacob Fosty - Age 4 months
Vincent Fosty - Age 2 Months
In the 1930 Census Alex Fosty-(Mis-spelled at FORTY) age 3
Samuel Fosty-(Mis-spelled as FORTY) AGE 1
THERE IS 6 month old with no name and is listed on the census. At this time they lived in PITTSFIELD, MASS ON
MADISON AVENUE. Any info would be nice.
Might have been put in foster homes and adoptions. I know
that my father's sister was apdopted.
