TRAVNEY, URBAN, URBANSKI, WYLIE posted by Pam Wylie on Wednesday, February 17, 1999

I am researching August and Augusta TRAVNEY URBANSKI(Y). They both came from East Prussia/ Germany. He was born in 1866 and she in 1868. They married about 1888. He emmigrated to this country 1883 and she in 1888. I don't know if they married there or here, he may have gone back to get her or he may have sent for her or maybe he met her here????? Anyway, they had 8 children, all in Munson, Clearfield county. At sometime they dropped the ski/y from the end of their name. Some of their children carried the ski and some did not. Children are Bertha, Conrad, Matilda, August, Augusta, Emma, Margaret, and Marry (Marie). Emma died between 1900 and 1910. Conrad was called Paul and he died in a mining accident. Augusta married John Wylie and moved to NY state. John's father is buried in bloomington Cemetary near Curwensville. If anyone has any information about either of these familys, I would appreciate it.
