    Research Notes Joseph Whalen gives name as “Katerina Zieba.” Husband’s death certificate and obituary of son Victor give “Katharzyna Zemba.” Massachusetts Death Index lists Katharzy M. Glowka. Birth certificate of daughter Amelia lists “Katie Zaba.” Social Security Applications and Claims Index entry for son Edward lists surname as “Ziemba.” Obituary of son William gives surname as “Zenbia.” I have chosed to use “Ziemba” as this is the name on her Petition for Naturalization, which she herself would have completed.

    Joseph Whalen gives birthplace as Kraków, Poland (but not in Kraków proper). Her Naturalization Petition lists Morki (or Marki), Austria. Marki is just northeast of Warsaw, about 40km from the birthplace of her husband. On the other hand, this area was under Russian, rather than Austrian control from before her birth until the end of the WWI. If there was another Marki/Morki in Austrian-controlled Polend (Galicia), I have been unable to find it.  [1, 9

    Notes 
    • Before coming to US, lived in a thatched-roof house in dire poverty. Met Joseph Glowka in Fall River (MA/RI) and probably married there. Had relatives there before coming to US. One of her children was a twin, but the other child died at birth.

      At the time of the 1915 Rhode Island Census, Katie was a boarder in the household of Mary Hefman.

      Emigrated via Bremen, Germany aboard the Kaiser Wilhelm II, arriving in New York on 23 April 1913.

      1920, 1930, and 1940 censuses all place her birth in 1899. Find-A-Grave entry gives birth year of 1894. [1, 2, 3, 5, 6]
