I am looking for any information available for the family of Mary Zielke born 12 Mar 1879 in Kovel, Volhynia. She married Edward Schultz in Koblah (Kovel?) on 7 May 1896. She immigrated to the United States in 1906. She had several children born in Volhynia.
Amiela Schultz b 12 Aug 1898
Nathalia Schultz b 5 Dec 1900
Olga Louise Schultz b 20 Sep 1903
Mary Zielke – her name is listed as Mary Golka in one record. The names for her parents were listed in her 1938 US Social Security Claim as
mother- Augusta Richter
father- Gottlieb Zielke
other siblings in the family include
Ralph Zielke who immigrated to Brazil
Pauline Zielke (Maleus) who lived in Germany
Bertha Zielke (Janke) b 7 May 1881 Wulke, Rowno, Volhynia
In the 1930 and 1940 US Census Mary and Edward Schultz list birth country as Poland and that they speak Polish at home
The 1920 Census they list Russia as the birth country
Their obituaries were found in a database of “Germans from Russia”
Edward Schultz was born in Kalisz on 22 Feb 1871. His Father’s name was August. He had 2 older brothers who immigrated to the US earlier.
Samuel Schultz b 24 Sept 1862 Poland
Julius Schultz b 14 Feb 1864 Poland
All of the brothers were fruit farmers in the US.
Any information or records of them- or their family- in Poland would be very much appreciated.
