Discovering our Ancestors' Travels and Travails

Antoni Maciejewski

Born 17 Feb 1883, Antoni Maciejewski was only a baby when he arrived in Buffalo from Prussia in December 1883 with his parents, Jan and Weronika Lewandowski Maciejewski. Along with his mother, Antoni became an American citizen when his father Jan Maciejewski was naturalized in 1890. Antoni‘s brothers and sisters were born in Buffalo, and were therefore native born American citizens.

Antoni was the most prolific of the Maciejewski children. He married Marya Szczepańska at Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in Bennington, Wyoming, New York, on 5 Aug 1907. Although Marya had been born in Buffalo, her parents Marcin and Anna Kalinowski Szczepański had purchased farmland and moved to Bennington Center at the turn of the century.
