    Notes 



    • Martin was born on 11 Nov 1836, the third child born to Joe and Rose, and baptized at the Catholic church on 20 November.
      When Martin was 17 years old in 1853, he emigrated by himself from Poland to America to escape conscription into the Prussian Army. His father did not want him conscripted into the Germany army, so he arranged Martin’s passage to America. According to the National Archives, Martin was well-educated because he could speak Polish and German plus he could write in Polish, German and Latin. Martin found employment as a laborer in Detroit and awaited the arrival of his family the following year. Martin was 5’6”, dark-complexioned, grey-eyed and had brown hair. He always wore a beard.
      When Andrew married Ann in 1854, he listed his birthplace as “Czarnkow,” according to Eduard Skendzel.
