Scott and Rhonda > Family History > Sebesta
On September 7, 1911, when their youngest child was iust 11 months old, Marianna died suddenly, leaving Cyril to care for his children alone. Tragically, Cyril died just one year later, and his children were parcelled out to Marianna's relatives, the Kaminskis. Marianna's brother Wallace Kaminski was named their official guardian at first, but after three years the older children asked the court to appoint their uncle John Kaminski as their guardian. Clara Sebesta died in 1916, and is buried in an unmarked grave in Chappell Hill cemetery near her parents.
The 1920 Census shows Rudolph, Charlie, and Joe living.with their uncle John Kaminski. Brygida was living with her cousin John Kaminski Jr.'s family. Prakseda was married, and had Bennie and Cyril Jr. living with her, while Christine was living with Ignac and Agnes Gutowski. Agata was living with Mike and Peggy Jozwiak. This accounts for nine of the ten living children. (Carolina, who was 20 by this time, may have been living with another family nearby.)
