Boleslaw married a woman named Josephine. In the 1930 census, it hows they
had 2 children: Henry (born about 1926) and Adalaide (born about 1928).
Boleslaw was a carpentry contractor. He died in 1977.

Boleslaw Lesniak
Name Birth Date Death Date Last Residence (City,County,State)
Boleslaw Lesniak 16 Oct 1893 Mar 1977 Buffalo, Erie, New York

The ship manifest shows that he went to the home of a brother, who was
living on Clinton Street at 920 Buffalo. That brother's name is not listed.
Boleslaw has also been to the US in 1913. It shows that Boleslaw was born
in Ozarow. His next of kin in Poland was his father Jozef, who lived in
Janowice, Opatow.

The 1913 manifest shows his name as Boleslaw Lesmiak, and that he went to
the home of Jan Me?ner, his brother in law, who was living at 840 Seneca
Street in Buffalo, so it looks like he had a brother and a sister in the US.
This year he again named his father Jozef as his next of kin in Janowice,
Radom. He came with two men named Jan Dzialowski and Jan Mayisk or Majiek,
who were also going to Buffalo, but to different addresses. It's hard to
read the last one's last nem. Boleslaw stated, this time, that he was born
in Janowice.

These are the Head of Households, with the last name of Lesniak, listed in
the Buffalo census records. Maybe he will recognize some of the names.
