Looking for Burzynski and Ellis(h) ancestors?

+3 votes
I need help finding more info about my great grandparents. I already searched a lot and hit a brick wall, so I'm hoping maybe someone could help. I'm not sure what someone would need to find them so this is everything I know:

Maiden name: Burzynski
Married Name: Ellis

John Ellis
Last name was originally Ellish, dropped the h when he came to the US

They had 9 kids
Kathryn York
Mary (Ralph Johnson)
Ann (no kids, never married)
Julia Lawson (Marvin)
Joe Ellis
Steve Ellis
John Ellis
Anthony (Tony) Ellis
Frank Ellis

Julia died in childbirth. Not really sure where either of them are from but its either Poland, Hungary, or Austria.

The 1920 US Census shows that John Ellis, his wife Julia M. and oldest child, Julia L. 17, were all born in Austria and came to the USA in 1903. The next child, Kate, was born in Pennsylvania, and all the other children were born in New York. ("United States Census, 1920," database with images, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MJK5-PMH : accessed 30 June 2018), John Ellis, Carroll, Chautauqua, New York, United States; citing ED 108, sheet 5A, line 45, family 131, NARA microfilm publication T625 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, 1992), roll 1090; FHL microfilm 1,821,090.)

The birth certificate for son John shows that he was also born in Pennsylvania, on 8 Oct 1906 in Glade, Warren County. On this documents, both parents are shown as born in Poland, and Julia's last name is shown as Bruzenski. (Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Box Number: 59; Certificate Number: 174295)
