Hi Linda

My grand parents were married in that church. I've have tried several
times to get information from them but they do not respond to letters or
emails. My grandparents left Bristol in 1905 and moved to New Haven. In
1909 they moved again to Jersey City, NJ. They lived there and adjacent
Hoboken until they died. I have the obit for my grandfather 1930 which
is not informative. I have yet to find an obit for my grandmother she
died in 1918 of the epidemic flu of that year. Thanks for the additional
leads. I would still need to find a Jolowice/Jalowice/Jelowica there.

Hello Michael,
I do not know the location of Jolowice. However, I do know that many
of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Bristol, CT were from the area of Lipno,
Rypin, and Wloclawek in Rus-Poland. This church was founded in 1892.

Is this the church where your grandparents were married? Have you
the church records there?
Have you checked for a newspaper obituary?

I have found the name Mantay...Mantey...Manthey...Manthej in the Lipno
records. I also recognize the name from St. John's Lutheran church in
Meriden, CT and Grace Lutheran Church in Middletown, CT. Many of the
who were early members of these churches were from these same districts

I wish you success in your search.
