Egnaczyk

Just added an Egnaczyk page to Family events and updated the rootsweb tree.

Apparently John and Anthony came from Poland to Sublet, WY to mine coal.  You may have heard of Sublet in the news recently.  Apprantly they have the nations highest ozone levels because of the gas wells in the southern part of the town.

The 1910 census shows them as coal miners of Aust.-Polish descent.  They are renting a house together.  Two doors down was an apparent boarding house.  It shows 32 boarders before running off the bottom of the form, all of Japanese descent.

I'll bet it was a beautiful, wild town to raise a family, which they did before moving to Boonville, Oneida county, NY.
