Life in Poland

Kammila Murawski was born on September 14, 1877 in Stara Weiss, Poland to Grzegorz Murawski and his wife Domicela (Ploska) Murawski.[1][2] She was baptized in Janowo, Poland on September 16, 1877.[1]

Kammila married Leon Sejda on February 13, 1901 in Krzynowloga Mala, Poland.[2] They had a son, Wincenty Sejda on June 3, 1902 in Poland.[3] Wincent, who was known as "Vincent" to his U.S. relatives, remained in Poland.[4][3]

Immigration to the United States

Kammila departed Hamburg on the SS Amerika on June 28, 1911 and arrived in New York on the SS Amerika on 8 July 1911. She joined her husband, Leon Sejda, in Hammond Indiana, traveling there by train.[5] Leon had arrived in the United States 9 years earlier in 1902.[6]

There probably was a language barrier or communication issues when Kammila's entry was made on the manifest. Originally, she was listed as Kammila Murawski and her relative was a person in Brooklyn, New York. Apparently, later, someone corrected this information, writing "Sada" over "Murawski" and correcting the relative she was joining to her husband.[5]

Kammila was originally listed on the manifest under her maiden name ("Murawski"), but it was later corrected to "Sada".[5]
Kammila Murawski's manifest entry was corrected to show she was joining her husband, Leon Sada, in Hammond, Indiana[5]

Life in the United States

By 1913, Leon and Kammila had settled into a house at 511 Fields Ave, Hammond, Indiana. The address for this house changed in 1930 or 1931 to 1027 Fields Ave.[7][8]

Leon and Kammila had four more sons in the United States, all probably born in Hammond, Indiana.

After her husband's death, Kammila and her sons moved to 6944 Columbia Ave, Hammond, Indiana.[12][13] Kammila lived here until sometime in the late 1940s or 1950s when she moved into with her son, Stanley, at 6134 W 9th Ave, Gary, Indiana.[14]

Death & Legacy

Kammila died July 1, 1960 at the Lake County Home, Crown Point, Indiana. She was buried on July 5, 1960 at the Holy Cross Cemetery in Calumet City, Illinois[14] following a Funeral Mass at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Hammond Indiana.[15]
