|A great grandson of John and Anna posted an entry in my Guestbook 20 Nov 2004. He noted that Anna's maiden name was ZOUCHA.|
Michael's centennial book shows that John KOZIOL and Anna ZOUCHA were
married at St. Michael's on 3 July 1902. John was a son of
Bartholomew KOZIOL and Catharina nee PAPROCKI. Anna was a
daughter of Joseph ZOUCHA and Eva nee KUTA.

|On 21 Oct
2008 I had an entry in my online Guestbook
from a woman who had visited the American Cemetery in Normandy, France,
and photographed the headstones of two Nebraskans buried there.
One of them was for Emil F. KOZIOL. Based on other resources, I
believe Joseph and Josie KOZIOL were Emil's parents.
The online The History of Platte County by Margaret Curry has the following entry for Emil F. KOZIOL:
STAFF SERGEANT EMIL F. KOZIOL
Staff Sergeant Emil F. Koziol was born in Burrows Township, near Tarnov, Nebraska, on October 4, 1915. He was killed in action in France on July 12, 1944.
He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Koziol of Tarnov, Nebraska, now deceased. He had seven brothers, three of whom served in World War II. They are Ray Koziol, P.O. 1/c, who served in the South Pacific; Jerome Koziol, a sergeant, who served in France; Mike Koziol, F. 1/c, who was in the Coast Guard stationed at New Orleans, Louisiana; Clifford Koziol of Genoa, Nebraska; Joe Koziol of Genoa, Nebraska; Andrew Koziol of New York City; and Gerhard Koziol of Humphrey, Nebraska.
Emil F. Koziol attended the Platte County District School and St. Michael's Parochial School at Tarnov, Nebraska. He was employed on a farm in Burrows Township until he entered the service on February 13, 1941.
Staff Sergeant Emil F. Koziol went overseas with the Thirty-fifth Division of the One Hundred Thirty-fourth Infantry in April of 1944, and was killed in action in France on July 12, 1944. He was buried overseas.
Memorial services were held for him at 9:00 a.m., Saturday, August 12, 1944, at the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Genoa, Nebraska, with the Reverend Father Zukowski officiating at the Requiem High Mass.
Following are the 1910, 1920 and 1930 U.S. censuses for Nebraska that list Joseph and Josie and their family.

Koziol, Emil, son, age 12, single, born Nebraska, parents born Nebraska

Because Josie is enumerated in the 1930 census, I question the year of death noted on this tombstone - 1925, unless these are not Emil's parents. Based on the other information here, I am fairly certain that they are.

|So far, Anna does not connect to my KUDRON family. I believe that she was Anna STARZEC, daughter of John and Katherine KORUS STARZEC and first wife of Adolph KUDRON (son of John D. and Antonia TORCZON KUDRON), married 17 January 1923 at Tarnov, Nebraska.|

|So far, Edward does not connect to my KUDRON family. I believe he was a son of Michael and Josephine STARTZ KUDRON, grandson of John D. and Antonia TORCZON KUDRON. According to the 1930 Nebaska census, Michael and Josephine had a son Edward whose birth year calculates to 1925.|

|Joseph KU¦ / KUSH was a son of Michael KU¦ and Sophia nee AUGUSTYN. Joseph was born on 27 Dec 1862 in the village of Łęki Górne, Poland, house 192. At the time of his birth this area of Poland was part of Galicia under Austrian rule. Joseph married Agnes BARNAS on 12 Nov 1887 in Platte County, Nebraska. They were the parents of at least 11 children: Frank, Mary, Celia, Helen, Pauline, Theophil, Gladys, Charles, Sophie, Eleanor, and Stanley. (Note: I have come across several instances where the name "Charles" and "Stanley" are used interchangably. This may be the case of these two sons listed here.)|

| According to the records from St.
Stanislaus Church in
Duncan, Platte County, Nebraska, Victoria was born on 18 December 1898
to Urban ZIEMBA and Mary nee GALUS. The birth date on the Social
Security Death Index agrees with the baptism record. The Platte County
marriage extracts show that Victoria married John KLOPNIOSKI on 12
February 1917 in Duncan, Nebraska. The "L" is probably the Polish
letter "Ł", which is pronounced like the English letter "W".
I have not connected Victoria's mother to my GALUS family. More about Urban and Maria GALUS ZIEMBA.
