Wladyslaw KARWOWSKI (a.k.a. Walter KARWOWSKI / KARVOSKI, in the U.S.A.) and his wife Stanislawa (Stella in the U.S.A.) TUCHINSKI were born in Poland and immigrated to the United States. Stella came with her daughter Laura in 1904.
Walter came to the U.S. in 1903. The 1920 census has them living at 149 North Quince St., Mt. Carmel, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. Later, they moved to a farm in Wieshample, Northumberland County, PA, which is about 10 miles from Mt. Carmel, PA. Stella's death certificate gives her usual residence as 319 N. Maple St., Mt. Carmel, PA.
According to Stella's death certificate she was born October 10, 1876, but the census has her being born Oct. 10, 1879. Stella died Feb. 19, 1956. She is buried at St. Ambrose Cemetery, Schuylkill Haven, Schuylkill County, PA. She is buried next to her son John. Stella's death certificate lists her parents as Leon Tuchinski and Balwina or Balurns Unknown. Stella died of Pulmary Tuberculosis.
A family member said that Walter died Feb. 4, 1940 in PA. But, we have been unable to obtain any record
of his death. He isn't buried at St. Ambrose Cemetery. The census record has Walter being about 1872 in Poland. Walter's occupation was a miner. A source also told me that Walter was baptised at St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church at Winza, Poland.
