I'm Carol Stotko. I was born in Buffalo,MN to Jerome A. Stotko and Laura Stotko. My grandfather was Joseph Stotko, who married Anna Fautch (sp). Joseph was a son of Lawrence Stotko, one of two brothers who immigrated from Poland in the 1870s. Lawrence settled in the Delano, Waverly area. My Dad grew up on the family farm outside of Waverly. Helen Pogreba was my Grandfather's sister. She married Tom Pogreba and they lived in Everett, WA. I met them when I was 10 and we travelled to Seattle for the World's Fair. Aunt Helen made the trip from MN to WA with us. Please email me with any information you may have already gathered. I think I can help fill in some holes. I do know that the Stotko family came from Opeln Poland, near Chestohowa (sp). If you are familiar with that area, it is the southwestern part of Poland that had been occupied by German or Austrian principalities through the centuries.
