Josephine M Dabuliewicz (1906-1965)
1920 - (age 14) 616 Har(p?) Street, Dayton, Ohio- with Alexinas family
1930- (age 24) 3306 Riverside, Dayton, Ohio- with husband & family
1940- 2334 (age 34) Newport, Dayton, Ohio- with husband & family
Josephine's mother died when Josephine was only 7 years old in 1913- of an illness she had received from the Great Dayton Flood. Josephine's father couldn't or wouldn't take care of his daughter, so he let the Alexinas family take her in. I don't know if he knew the Alexinas family personally or if she was given to the state first.
By 1920, she was living with them and had taken their name.
Josephine's father remarried before 1915- which is the same year that he had his second daughter with his second wife- Honorata Cieslak. He went on to have 6 children with her.
Josephine married Gerhard Cletus Jeckering in 1924.
