From Gajafsky Family History narrated by Emma Rose Gajafski Cartier to her daughter Carol Ione Taylor: Brother Emil (oldest) spelled name Gajewski and was jagersman in the Black Forest in Germany like his father had been. He wore an olive green uniform. ...Emil came last [of the brothers to America] and because he had been a jagersman in Germany thought himself better than the others. .. Pauline's father was Martin Degner and Adolph's mother was Martin Degner's sister. (note by Judi Oehler: died in Germany Skoks Shekken) Martin promised Pauline to Emil (Adolph's brother) but Pauline hated Emil, so got pregnant by Adolph and married him, so Emil always hated Adolph after that.

Need proof that the Emil Gajewski of the 1920 Census is the son of Gustav Adolph Gajafsky and Pauline Charlotte Degner.
