My husband always thought his mother was married before-
finally found the marriage application
I couldnít track Paul E Herter from that date. Did he die! Were they divorced!
And my husband doesnít know his mom and dads wedding date
Mary Czaplicka born Feb 1918 Philadelphia,died Sept 8 1967 NJ
Thomas Witts born Oct 16 1919 PA,died Nov 11,2001 NJ

Iím also looking for the death date of his Grandmother
Fannie Quinn
b:1893 PA. parents Thomas J Adams/Jane Stevenson
m: !!!!! Martin Witts/Witz 1890-1923
m: Harry Quinn 1877-1951

I have many other queries with the Czaplicka line. But at the moment I hope to solve the above 2
Thank you

couldn't find Martin Witts
is this Thomas Witts - says b 1920 - 1 year out - address 2950 Belgrade - Philadelphia,Pennsylvania
says Brother in law to head of household - so I presume his sister is Viola - just seen - FANNIE QUINN is there living with them aged 47 - 1940 census

ADDED
If I am reading this right - that census has - FANNIE QUINN - with her son Thomas Witts and her daughter Viola (Witts) Erickson - living in Violas house ??...am I right ??

Yes You have the correct family in the 1940 census. Itís weird that the marriage date for Harry and Fannie is 1948 in W Virginia. Where they actually married in the 1940 census! My husbands family is very confusing

From the wedding application Paulís parents are Christian Herter,Rose Pauline Euler
I found the in 1920,1930,1940 Censuses-I found the marriage of his sister Christine to Elmer Schaefer on Dec 31 1935. There is a sister Dorothy. Canít find any information on her.
I believe Christian Herter died in 1949 and Rose in 1978. Canít find their place of burial though

This is interesting - gives the town in Poland she was born - but she married a CZAPLICKI - same spelling but an I at the end - not an A
I wonder if Czaplicka and Czaplicki are the same family from Poland ?

3of her 4 siblings are Czaplicka with an A

It's my understanding that in Polish the surname ends in 'a' for women and 'i' for men.
