UPDATE 2019: Ok, my Ancestry membership expires soon. I have a brick wall with Johan (John) Okon, if anyone can help. There are a number of John Okons in Detroit, but I do not believe my 2nd grandfather emigrated to the USA as his wife died, now verified, died in West Prussia, Germany.
Wife (located baptismal certif below) Mary Nagorznik Okon listed, birth of daughter. She is my 2nd great-grandmother, 1825–1868 BIRTH 1 JAN 1825 • Zarnowitz, Neustadt, West Prussia, Prussia -- DEATH ABT. 1868 • Zarnowitz, Putzig, West Prussia, Prussia, Germany
Lineage, their daughter is my maternal great grandmother, Mary Marianna Okon Wittbrodt, 1848–1923 BIRTH 10 APR 1848 • Danzig, West Prussia, DEATH 10 OCT 1923 • Merritt, Bay, Michigan, USA
Having trouble verifying John Okon.
Lineage on maternal side for Marianna N. is to marry into Wittbrodt family.
Mary Nagorska, 1825– (Prussia) with two daughters, including Marianna Okon (my great grandmother for which I have a photo) and her sister, Anna Okun / Okuon appears to be correct.
1848 • Zarnowitz, West Prussia, Poland
CITATION: Marianna Magdalena Okon, West Prussia Church Books Baptism: 1848 - Zarnowitz, West Prussia Parents: Johann Okon, Marianna Nagorznik
In Ancestry.com, there are 2 daughters listed for Johann and Marianna Zielke: Maria (1876-1901) and Anna (1872-1934). I have the same names, but with Mary Nagorska and have Mary Marianna (1848-1923) and Anna (1875-1932). These appear to be different people.
With this brick wall, any assistance would be appreciated.
