Karol Janik’s naturalization papers

Karol filed his declaration of intention, but he died two years later, so his paperwork was never finished. Adam Sanetra said that he was going to live with his brother in law Karol Janik, on the Ellis Island ship manifest of 1923. I cannot figure out how they are related, unless it is through Karol’s first wife, which I know nothing about. Adam could have said they were friends, but instead he gave a relationship. Karol immigrated in May 1906, after his first wife died. His second wife, Julia Pantera, was the widow of Wladyslaw Kwiatkowski. I have not yet found any record showing that Karol had any children.

Karol Janik and Adam Sanetra lived at 1058 Marshfield Avenue in Chicago. Karol shows up in the 1915 city directory with this address. The 1914 city directory gives the address of 1150 Marshfield Avenue. I’m not sure if that was a mistake, or if that means Karl moved to 1058 in the year 1915. Karol was a tailor.
