52 Ancestors- Week 12- Josephine Dabuliewicz

Josephine M. Dabuliewicz- my great grandmother

b. 02 Jan 1906- Brooklyn, New York
d. 02 Jan 1965- Dayton, Ohio

Parents: Josef Dabuliewicz (1883-1977) &
              Stephania Ellert (1878-1913) 

Adoptive Parents: John J. Alexinas (1874-1955) &
                            Mary Kushinski (1879-1973)

No biological siblings- Josephine was an only child. She had one adoptive brother- George Francis Alexinas (1904-1952) was the only child of John and Mary Alexinas. 

How Josephine is related to me:

~Carrie Jeckering Smith (me)
~My parents
~Paul George Jeckering (1925-1954) & Dorothy Hendricks
~Gerhard Cletus Jeckering (1900-1967) &
   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.
