PANAGABKO
(Панагабко)

Preface

This family is ancestral in two different ways to Katerina Demchuk, wife of Julian Lubiniecki of Dauphin, Manitoba, and the main focus in this page is on those direct lines (I and II below). Line III belongs to Chris Bostwick. At the end we have included brief acounts of some other Panagabko families known to have come to Manitoba (Lines IV through VII). The family’s origins lie at Tsyhany [Цигани], in the parish of Skala, district of Borshchiv, Ternopil’, Galicia, Ukraine, where it was already well established by the end of the eighteenth century. Although the present account is still quite skeletal, and some of the readings of surnames uncertain, we publish it in the hope that it may lead to fuller knowledge of this family.

This page relies to an even greater degree than usual on the efforts of others, and thanks are due to the following persons for assistance:

  • Chris Bostwick, a double Panagabko descendant (see lines II and III below), for information on the family.
  • Gary Duschl (not a Panagabko descendant), author of the Kuzyk Family Tree at MyHeritage.com, who has generously shared his extensive researches in the Tsyhany church registers, and offered many helpful suggestions as to their interpretation.

An asociated page on this website is our Ancestor table of the children of Leo James Lubiniecki and Alma Cecilia Reagan.


I. Line of Francisca Panagabka, wife of Luca Baszczak

1. Anton Panagabko [Антон Панагабко], of Tsyhany, born say 1750, alive in 1800 but died before 6 March 1819 (when his wife is called his widow in her burial record). He is named as Antonius Panagabko in the marriage record of his daughter Francisca. He married by about 1800, Agneta ____, born 1756-57, died 6 March 1819, aged 62 years, at house no. 21, Tsyhany, and buried as “Agnes Antonii Panagabko uxor vidua.”[1] Her surname is given in the baptismal records of her children Mathias and Magdalena, but apparently as Skalapanski in the former and as Lubanski in the latter. Known issue:[2]

  1. Thecla Panagabka, born 11 September 1784.
  2. Mathias Panagabko, born 6 September 1794, baptized as a son of Antonius Panagabko and “Agnes ex patre Skalapanski [?],” died 21 November 1796 at house no. 21, Tsyhany, aged 5 __ [units not clear], and as “Mathias filius Antonii Panagabko” buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[3]
  3. Barbara Panagabka, born 4 December 1792, baptized in house no. 21, Tsyhany, as a daughter of Antonius [surname indistinct in record, but of the right length to be Panagabko] and Agnes. Possibly identical with the Barbara below, but if so her age at death is misstated in her burial record.
  4. Magdalena Panagabka, born 5 June 1796, baptized as a daughter of Antonius Panagabko and Agnes Lubanski [?].
  5. Barbara Panagabka, ostensibly born about April 1798 (no baptism found) but really born earlier if she is identical with the Barbara above, died 7 October 1798 at house no. 21, Tsyhany, aged 6 months (menses, very clearly written), and buried as “Barbara, filia Antonii Panagabko et Agnetis” according to Roman Catholic rites.[4]
  6. Francisca Panagabka, born ostensibly in 1800 (age reported as 19 at her marriage, 31 in at her death, but no baptismal record found), died 29 August 1831, aged 31, during a cholera epidemic in which eight other people died on the same day, and buried at Tsyhany as “Francisca, Lucæ Bazczak uxor.”[5] As Francisca Panagabka, aged 19 years, daughter of Antonius Panagabko and Agneta ____, she married 6 February 1820 at Tsyhany, according to Roman Catholic rites,[6] Luca Baszczak, of Tsyhany, born 26 September 1792 (per baptismal record), baptized in the Catholic church, Tsyhany,[7] died 25 January 1833, and buried at Tsyhany,[8] son of Adalbert Baszczak, of house no. 52, by the latter’ wife Constantia or Constantina Hutnik. Other than in the record of his baptism, his surname usually appears as Bazczak. For their issue see under Baszczak.
  7. Anton Panagabko born 1801-02 (no baptism found), died 3 November 1844 at house no. 27, Tsyhany, aged 42 years, and as “Antonius Panagabko, uxoratus [married man],” buried the same day according to Roman Catholic rites.[9]
  8. Laurent Panagabko, born 31 July 1804.

II. Line of Mariya Panagabka (wife of Fedor Demchuk) and Agnes Panagabka (wife of Michael Bujar)

Anton Panagabko Rosalia Cycaj Bartholomeus Krawcow Catharina ____
Petro Panagabko Anna Krawcow
Mariya and Agnes Panagabka

1. Anton Panagabko [Антон Панагабко], of Tsyhany, born 1767-68, died 24 December 1825 at house no. 48, Tsyhany, aged 57 years.[10] He is named as Antonius Panagabko in the marriage record of his son Petro. He married by 1795, Rosalia Cycaj [end of surname uncertain], born 1769-70, died 24 October 1824, aged 54 years, and buried at Tsyhany as “Rosalia Antonii Panagabko uxor,”[11] daughter of Joseph Cycaj. The baptismal records of their sons Ignatius and Anton name her father as Josephus Cycaj (a reading made clear by other church register entries of the period). The baptismal record of their son Joannes seemingly gives the mother’s name as Rosalia Globowich; but the end of the name is written over a line, and is not entirely legible, and possibly Globowich was really intended as a place of origin rather than her surname, as she is called “Rosalia, filia Josephi Cy[c]aj de Gl_b___ [ending illegible]” in the baptismal record of her son Anton. Known issue:[12]

  1. Marianna Panagabka, born 6 August 1795. As Marianna Panagabka, aged 17 [and understatement], daughter of Antonius, she married 16 November 1816 in house no. 73, Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[13] Michael Panagabko, born 1787-88 (aged 28 in 1816), son of Paul Panagabko, mother not named. It seems unlikely he was a son of the Paul Panagabko who heads Line III below. Rather, considering the close agreement of their ages, this Michael was probably the same as Michael Panagabko, born 1788-89 (by calculation), alive in 1836, son of Paulus Panagabko and Marianna ____, who married 22 May 1825 in house no. 30, by Roman Catholic rites,[14] Francisca Baszczak, born 26 July 1806, alive in 1836, daughter of Adalbertus Baszczak and Constantia/Constantina Hutnik.
  2. Francisca Panagabka, born 4 March 1798 in house no. 48, Tsyhany.
  3. Josepha [?] Panagabka [writing very faint], born 23 February 1800.
  4. Apolonia Panagabka, born 13 February 1801.
  5. Joannes Panagabko, born 6 April 1803, baptized as a child of Anton Panagabko and “Rosalia de Globowich [?] nata,” died 8 April 1828 at house no. 48, Tsyhany, aged only 25 years, barely a year after his marriage, and as Joannes, son of Antonius and Rosalia Panagabko, buried two days later at Tsyhany according to Roman Catholic rites.[15] He married 17 February 1827 in house no. 48, Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[16] Francisca Michaelikowych, born 1809-10 (aged 17 in 1827), daughter of Basilius [Wasyl] Michaelikowych and Anastasia ____. The marriage record describes them as “Joannes, Antonii et Rosaliæ Panagabko filius,” aged 24 years, and “Francisca, Basilii et Anastasiæ Michaelikowych,” aged 17 years. Possibly Michaelikowych is a genitive, and the surname should simply be Michaelikow.
  6. 2Petro Panagabko (twin to Catharina), of Tsyhany, born 17 May 1807 in house no. 48, Tsyhany.
  7. Catharina Panagabka (twin to Petro), born 17 May 1807 in house no. 48, Tsyhany.
  8. Franciscus [?] Panagabko [writing very faint], born 28 November 1808.
  9. Ignatius Panagabko, born 10 January 1809, baptized as Ignatius, son of Antonius Panagabko and “Rosalia, filia Josephi Cycaj.”
  10. Anton Panagabko, born in March 1813 [day torn away], baptized as Antoniuis, son of Antonius Panagabko and “Rosalia, filia Josephi Cy[c]aj de Gl_b___ [ending illegible],” died 17 April 1840 at house no. 48, Tsyhany, aged only 27 years, and buried two days later at Tsyhany according to Romas Catholic rites as “Antonius, Antonii et Rosaliæ Panagabko filius.”[17] As Antonius Panagabko, aged 23 years, son of Antonius and Rosalia Panagabko, he married 30 March 1836 at Tsyhany, by Romas Catholic rites,[18] Catharina Czawatkowycz [reading of surname uncertain], daughter of Christopher Czawatkowycz.

2. Petro Panagabko [Петро Панагабко], of Tsyhany, son of Anton Panagabko and Rosalia Cycaj, was born 17 May 1807 in house no. 48, Tsyhany, and baptized as a child of Antonius Panagabko and Rosa ____,[19] and was still alive in 1836 (the earlies possible date of birth of his daughter Magdalena). He married 27 October 1828 at Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[20] Anna Krawcow, born 1809-10, likewise still alive in 1836, daughter of Bartholomeus Krawcow and Catharina ____. Their marriage record calls him Petrus Panagabko, aged 21 years, son of Antonius and Rosalia, and her Anna ____, aged 18 years, daughter of Bartholomeus and Catharina; the surname is illegible but certainly not Krawcow. However, her surname is given as Kracow in the marriage records of her daughters Known issue:

  1. Mariya Panagabka [Мариа Панагабка], born 1830-31 (aged 38 in 1869), still alive in 1869 (the date of her second marriage). There is a marriage record for a Marianna Panagabka, aged 16 years, daughter of Petrus and Anna, and Theodorus Jakimczuk, son of Alexander and Marianna, aged 23 years, dated 28 October 1847.[21] This would fit exactly with the age of Mariya, who was aged 38 years in November 1869; whereas her younger sister Marianna was only 12½ years old at the time. Mariya married (1 or 2) by 1852, Fedor Demchuk [Федор Демчук], a landowner at Tsyhany, born about 1826-27 (aged 39 in 1866), died 19 March 1866 (not in April of that year as stated by Demetrius P. Demchuk), aged 39 years, and buried two days later at Tsyhany,[22] “in the new cemetery on the west side of the village” (according to Demetrius P. Demchuk), son of Aleksandr Demchuk, of Tsyhany, by the latter’s wife Mariya ____. His death occurred within two weeks of that of his son Nicolaus, possibly suggesting illness in the family. His burial record calls him Theodorus Demczuk, of house no. 184, Tsyhany. No evidence has been found to support the claim in the typescript genealogy by Demetrius P. Demchuk that this man had a wife named Anna Bilinski, which possibly involves some confusion with the Bilinski connection of his wife’s sister Magdalena.[23] In any case, the evidence that Mariya was the mother of all his known children is discussed in the DEMCHUK page. As Maria Panagabka, aged 38 years, daughter of Petrus and Anna, she married (2 or 3) 14 November 1869 in house no. 3, Tsyhany,[24] Joannes Sytnik, born 1840-41 (aged 28 in 1869), son of Andreas Sytnik and Anna ____.
        Mariya’s son Wasyl Demchuk (1860-1934) married his presumed kinswoman Antonina Warowy (ca. 1866-1963), daughter of Martin Warowy and Mariya Sołonynka, granddaughter of Prokop Sołonynka and Agneta Bazczak, and great-granddaughter of Luca Bazczak and Francisca Panagabka (see above).
  2. Agnes Panagabka, born 22 May 1833, baptized in the Catholic church, Tsyhany,[25] died 19 April 1867 at house no. 119, Tsyhany, aged 35 years, and buried by Roman Catholic rites as “Agnes Panagabka uxor Michaelis Bujar.”[26] She married 22 May 1856 at house no. 48, Tsyhany,[27] Michael Bujar, born about 1835 (aged 20 in 1856, 37 in 1872), died 4 May 1872 in house no. 119, Tyshany, aged 37 years, and buried according two days later according to Catholic rites,[28] son of Fedor Bujar and Catharina Kostiuk (who are named in the 1864 baptismal record of his daughter Anna).[29] Their marriage record calls them Agnes Panagabka, aged 22, daughter of Petrus and Anna, and Michael Bujar, aged 20, son of Theodorus and Catharina. One of the witnesses at the marriage was the bride’s brother-in-law, Fedor Demchuk. Known issue (mainly per Chris Bostwick):
    1. (position uncertain) Gregor Bujar (baptism not found), whose parentage is proved by the baptismal record of his daughter Anastasia. He married before 1882, Catharina Bazczak, daughter of Francis Bazczak and Helena ____. Known issue:
      1. Anastasia Bujar, born 18 January 1882 in house no. 119, Tsyhany, baptized the next day in the Greek Catholic church as Anastasia, daughter of “Gregorius, Michaelis Bujar et Agnetis filius” and “Catharina, Francisci Bazczak et Helenæ.”[30]
      2. Michalina Bujar, born 3 October 1884 in house no. 119, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic church as Michalina, daughter of “Gregorius, Michaelis Bujar et Agnetis filius” and “Catharina, Francisci Bazczak et Helenæ filia.”[31]
    2. Anastasia Bujar, born 4 September 1861 (?) at Hleszczawa, Trembowla District, Galicia, died 28 May 1933 at Frances, Pacific Co., Washington, U.S.A. She married before 1883 (when their oldest known child was born), her presumed kinsman, Josef Bazczak, born 8 March 1858 in house no. 8, Tsyhany, died 27 March 1931 at Frances, Washington, aforesaid, son of Adalbert Bazczak and Anna Panagabka. They were the great-grandparents of Chris Bostwick.
    3. Maria Bujar, born 6 May 1862 in house no. 119, Tsyhany, and baptized same day,[32] died 19 November 1905 at Ethelbert, Manitoba, Canada. She married by 1882, her presumed kinsman, Andreas Panagabko, said to have been born about 1842 at Tsyhany, died 10 March 1937 at Ethelbert, Manitoba,[33] son of Wasyl Panagabko (not further identified) and Anna ____. See Line IV below.
    4. Anna Bujar, born 25 April 1864, baptized in the Roman Catholic church, Tsyhany, as Anna, daughter of “Michael Theodori Bujar et Catharinæ Kostiuk [not clearly written] filius” and “Agnes, Petri Panagabko et Mariæ Paskal [sic] filia,”[34] died 7 April 1866 at house no. 49, Tshany, aged 3 years.[35]
  3. Marianna Panagabka, born 11 April 1835 at house no. 48, Tsyhany, baptized in the Catholic church, Tsyhany.[36] See above for the 1847 marriage of a Marianna Panagabka, which we believe is too early to pertain to this daughter.
  4. Magdalena Panagabka, born 1836-37 (aged 19 in 1856), married 16 November 1856 at Tsyhany,[37] Franciscus Bilinski, born 1825-26 (aged 30 years in 1856), son of Vincentius Bilinski and Anna ____, of Borszczow. The entry calls the bride Magdalena Panagabka, aged 19, daughter of Petrus and Anna, and the groom Franciscus Bilinski, aged 30, of house no. 48, Tsyhany, son of Vincentius and Anna, of Borszczow.

III. Line of Anna Panagabka, wife of Adalbert Baszczak

Paul Panagabko Regina Kukow Casimir Rumianski Anna ____
Sebastian Panagabko Marianna Rumianska
Anna Panagabka

1. Paul Panagabko, of house no. 18, Tsyhany, born 1766-67, alive in 1807. He married 28 January 1787 at Tsyhany, according to Roman Catholic rites,[38] Regina Kukow, born 1768-69. alive in 1807, daughter of Joannes Kukow. The record names the parties as Paulus Panagabko, aged 20 years, and “Regina filia Joannis Kukow,” aged 18 years, and the witnesses as Blasius [Wasyl] Baszczak and Paulus Panagabko. The record fails to name his father, but perhaps he was a son of the second witness. The baptismal records of two of Regina’s children support her father’s name as given in her marriage record. Known issue:[39]

  1. Basilius [Wasyl] Panagabko, born 2 January 1788 at house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized as a child of Paulus Panagabko and “Regina nata de Joanne Kukow,” died by 5 January 1798, when another son was given the same name.
  2. 2Sebastian Panagabko, born 7 January 1790.
  3. Rosalia Panagabka, born 26 August 1792, baptized as a child of Paulus Panagabko and “Regina de Josepho [an error for Joanne] Kukow,” died 30 August 1792 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, aged 3 years, and buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[40]
  4. Lucas Panagabko, born 12 October 1794 at house no. 13, Tsyhany, died 15 August 1797 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, aged 3 years, and buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[41]
  5. Basilius [Wasyl] Panagabko, born 5 January 1798, baptized as a child of Paulus Panagabko and “Regina nata de Joanne Kukow.”
  6. Joannes Panagabko, born 8 February 1802. He married 27 October 1828 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, Victoria Zacharczenko, daughter of Kazimierz Zacharczenko and Marianna ____. Their marriage record names them as “Joannes, Pauli et Rosaliæ [an error for Reginæ] Panagabko filius,” aged 27 years, and “Victoria, Casimiri et Mariannæ Zacharczenkowych [genitive plural of Zacharczenko] filia,” aged 18 years.
  7. Victoria Panagabka, born 15 December 1807 at house no. 13, Tsyhany.

2. Sebastian Panagabko, of Tsyhany, son of Paul Panagabko and Regina Kukow, was born 7 January 1790 at Tsyhany and baptized in the Roman Catholic church,[42] died 3 September 1855 (his true age of 65 being greatly exaggerated as 78 in the record), and was buried by Roman Catholic rites.[43] His burial record, which names him as “Sebastianus Panagabko, Mariannæ Olchowy [sic] marit[us],” states that he died in house no. 113, but this should probably be 13 for his parental home, where his second wife died. As Stephanus Pomagabka (sic), parents not named, he married (1) 16 June 1812 by Roman Catholic rites,[44] Agnes Parcej (or Parcey), born some time in 1789-96 (reportedly aged 16 in 1812, 36 in 1826), died 25 March 1826 at house no. 13, Tsyhany, aged 36 years, and buried as “Agnes, Sebastiani Panagabko uxor” two days later by Roman Catholic rites,[45] daughter of Stefan Parcej (or Parcey). In their marriage record, in which her age is given as only 16, her name is given as “Agnes Stephani Parcejow.” Her maiden surname is given as Parcejowa in the baptismal record of her son Martin. Sebastian married (2) almost certainly in 1826, Marianna Rumianska, born 1790-91, died 2 April 1828 (perhaps in childbirth) at house no. 13, Tsyhany, aged 37 years, and buried as “Marianna, Sebastiani Pangabok uxor,” her age being illegible in the record,[46] daughter of Casimir Rumianski and Anna (named in the baptismal record of her son Joannes). As Sebastianus Panagabko, aged 40, son of Paulus and Regina, he married (3) 3 February 1830 at Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[47] Marianna Olchowy, born 1797-98 (aged 32 in 1830), evidently still alive at her husband’s death (when he is called her maritus rather that viduus), daughter of Joannes and Anna Olchowy. Their marriage record describes them as “Sebastianus, Pauli et Reginæ Panagabkowych [genitive plural of Panagabko] filius,” aged 40 years, and “Marianna, Joanni et Mariannæ Olchowych [gentitive plural of Olchowy] filia,” aged 32 years. Known issue:[48]

(by first wife)

  1. Martin Panagabko, born 1 November 1814 in house no. 8, Tsyhany, baptized in the Roman Catholic Church as son of Sebastianus Panagabko and Agnes Parcejowa, died 26 November 1818 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, aged 4 years, of scarlet fever, and buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[49]
  2. Sophia Panagabka, born 28 March 1818 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized in the Roman Catholic Church as a daughter of Sebastianus “Pomagabko” and “Agnes nata par Stephano Parcey,” died 12 March 1820 in house no. 13, aged 2 years, and buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[50]
  3. Marianna Panagabka, born 2 February 1821 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized in the Roman Catholic Church as a daughter of Sebastianus “Ponagabko” and “Sophia [sic!] nata par Stephano Parcey,” died 28 December 1828, aged 7 years, and buried as a daughter of “Sebastiani et Mariannæ [an error for Agnetis] Panagabkowych [genitive plural of Panagabko] filia.”

(by second wife)

  1. Joannes Panagabko, born 4 May 1827 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized in the Roman Catholic Church as a son of “Sebastianus, Pauli et Rosaliæ [error for Reginæ] Panagabko filius” and “Marianna, Casimiri et Annæ Rumianskich [genitive plural of Rumianski] filia,” died 14 February 1832 at house no. 13, aged 4 years, and buried according to Roman Catholic rites.[51]
  2. Anna Panagabka, born evidently in early 1828 (aged 18 in 1847), alive at the death of her husband in 1866. Her marriage record names her parents as Sebastian Panagabko and Marianna, and if the stated age of 18 years is correct she must have been by her father’s second wife, and thus born no later than 2 April 1828. She married 8 February 1847 at Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[52] Adalbert Bazczak, of Tsyhany, born 1821-22 (aged 25 in 1847, 44 in 1866), died 20 March 1866 in house no. 8, Tsyhany, aged 44 years, and buried by Roman Catholic rites as “Adalbertus Bazczak, maritus Annæ Panagabka,” indicating that his wife was then alive.[53] son of Michael Baszczak, of Tsyhany, by the latter’s wife Marianna Podgurski. See further under Baszczak.

IV. Line of Andrew Panagabko, of Ethelbert, Manitoba

                        Anton Panagabko Rosalia Cycaj Bartholomeus Krawcow Catharina ____
        Fedor Bujar Catharina Kostiuk Petro Panagabko Anna Krawcow
Wasyl Panagabko Anna ____ Michael Bujar Agnes Panagabka
Andrew Panagabko Maria Bujar

1. Wasyl Panagabko, of Tsyhany, married by about 1842, Anna ____. They are named in the baptismal records of the four children of their son Andrew.

2. Andrew Panagabko, of Ethelbert, Manitoba, son of Wasyl Panagabko and Anna ____, was born about 1842 (aged 78 in 1911) at Tsyhany, and died 10 March 1937 at Ethelbert, Manitoba.[54] Kaye states, without citing a source, that he was a son of “Basil and Nastasia Panagapko of Cyhany,” and this is essentially in agreement with the baptismal records of this man’s children. He married (1) by 1886, his presumed kinswoman, Maria Bujar (Kaye calls her Marianna), born 6 May 1862 in house no. 119, Tsyhany, died 19 November 1905 at Ethelbert, daughter of Michael Bujar and Agnes Panagabka (see Line II above), who are named in her children’s baptismal records. He married (2) after 1905 but by 1911, Teresa Parcey, widow of ____ Chornobay. He, with his first wife and their three children, arrived at Halifax on 22 May 1897 on the S.S. Prussia. He is found with his second wife, and ostensbiby with three sons, Joseph (aged 16), Mike (aged 14), and John (aged 9), in the 1911 census.[55] However, he is found at Dauphin in the 1916 census with his second wife, and her sons Michael Parcey (aged 18) and John Parcey (aged 16), and this suggests that the three sons of 1911 were actually hers.[56] Known issue:[57]

  1. Joannes Panagabko, born 1 December 1882 in house no. 111, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Joannes, son of “Andreas, Bazilii Panagabko et Annæ” and “Maria, Michaelis Bujar et Agnetis.” He probably died before her parents left Ukraine, as there is no notation in his baptismal record stating that he left for Canada; and in any case he is not recorded with his family in the manifest of passengers on their landing in Canada.
  2. Julianna Panagabka, born 18 July 1885 in house no. 111, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Julianna, daughter of “Andreas, Bazilii Panagabko et Annæ” and “Maria, Michaelis Bujar et Agnetis,” with godparents Joannes Szczukowski and Anna Demczuk. She probably died before her parents left Ukraine, as there is no notation in her baptismal record stating that she left for Canada; and in any case she is not recorded with her family in the manifest of passengers on their landing in Canada.
  3. Michael Panagabko, born 16 September 1887 in house no. 41, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Michael, son of “Andreas, Bazilii Panagabko et Annæ” and “Maria, Michaelis Bujar et Agnetis”; the entry has an annotation indicating that the family left for Canada. He married Anastasia Guntel, and had issue; see Kaye for further details. Anastasia married (2) (as his second wife), Nicholas Zurba.[58]
  4. Josefa Panagabka, born 12 March 1890 in house no. 111, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Josefa, daughter of “Andreas, Bazilii Panagabko et Annæ” and “Maria, Michaelis Bujar et Agnetis.”
  5. Anna Panagabka, born 6 December 1894 in house no. 111, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Anna, daughter of “Andreas, Bazilii Panagabko et Annæ” and “Maria, Michaelis Bujar et Agnetis.”

2. Martin Panagabko, married before 1863, Maria Szumka. They are named in the baptismal record of their son Wasyl. Only known child:

3. Wasyl Panagabko, born 18 January 1863, baptized by Catholic rites at Tsyhany,[59] died 16 May 1928 in the Rural Municipality of Dauphin, Manitoba, aged 61 years.[60] Later records make him slightly younger (aged 42 in 1906, 61 in 1928), but the baptismal records of his children bear out the parentage for him shown here. He married by 1890, Anna Petryszyn, born 1868-69 (aged 37 in 1906), alive in 1911, daughter of Joannes [i.e. Ivan] Petryszyn and Rosalia ____. The baptismal records of their sons Petrus, Michael, and Nicolaus all state that the family moved to Canada, and they are clearly the Wasyl and Anna Panagabko who appear with six children at Dauphin, Manitoba, in the 1906 census of the Prairie Provinces, as the ages of their sons Petro (16), Michal (15), and Nicola (12) are in close agreement with their Ukrainian baptismal records.[61] According to the 1906 census, the family came to Canada in 1901. In some Canadian records they appear under the female form of the surname, Panagabka. Known issue:

  1. Petro Panagabko, born 22 June 1890 in house no. 18, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic Church, Tsyhany, as Petrus, son of “Bazilius, Martini Panagabko et Mariæ” and “Anna, Joannis Petryszyn et Rosaliæ,”[62] of Yorkton, Saskatchewan, at the death of his sister Nellie in 1955. He is presumably the Peter Panagapka (sic) who married 7 February 1912 in the Rural Municipality of Mossey River, Manitoba, Katharine Petryszyn.[63]
  2. Michael Panagabko, born 18 September 1891 in house no. 18, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic Church, Tsyhany, as Michael, son of “Bazilius, Martini Panagabko et Mariæ” and “Anna, Joannis Petryszyn et Rosaliæ,”[64] alive in 1906, but evidently predeceased his sister Nellie as he is not mentioned in her 1955 death notice.
  3. Nick Panagabko (called Nicola in the 1906 census), born 14 August 1893 in house no. 10, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic Church, Tsyhany, as Nicolaus, son of “Bazilius, Martini Panagabko et Mariæ” and “Anna, Joannis Petryszyn et Rosalia[e],”[65] of Toronto, Ontario, at the death of his sister Nellie in 1955.
  4. Anastasia Panagabka, born 1 January 1895 in house no. 19, Tsyhany, baptized in the Greek Catholic Church, Tsyhany, as Anastasia, daughter of “Bazilius, Martini Panagabko et Mariæ” and “Anna, Joannis Petryszyn et Rosaliæ,”[66] died in infancy 13 November 1895 (annotation in baptismal record).
  5. Carlyle Panagabko (called Carroll in 1906 census), born 1899-1900 (aged 6 in 1906) in Austria, per 1906 census, of Toronto, Ontario, at the death of his sister Nellie in 1955.
  6. John (“Jack”) Panagabko, born 18 February 1903 in the Rural Muncipality of Mossey River, Manitoba,[67] of Welland, Ontario, at the death of his sister Nellie in 1955.
  7. Nellie Panagabko (called Nashta in the 1906 census), born 1904-05 (aged 1 in 1906; birth registration not found) in Manitoba, died 9 November 1955 at Fork River, Manitoba, reportdely aged 54 years (age is perhaps overstated).[68] She married in 1921 at Oak Brae, Joseph Rudkevitch.[69] Her death notice reads, in part: “Mrs. Joseph Rudkevitch, of Fork River … died Wednesday, November 9, in the Dauphin General hospital following a short illness. She was 54 years of age … interment was made in the Fork River cemetery. Pallbearers were Mike, William, Rudolph, and Brunson Rudkevitch, Peter and Joe Panagapko…. Born and educated at Mossey River, Nellie Panagapko married Joseph Rudkevitch at Oak Brae in 1921. They reside in the Fork River district since that time. Surviving, besides her husband, are found son, Brunson, of Fork River; William, of Churchill; Mike of Drayton Valley, Alta.; Rudolph, with R.C.A.F. Station, Alta.; five daughters, Mrs. Max Fediuk, of Weiden; Mrs. Walter Lum, of Winnipeg; Elizabeth, of Winnipeg; Helen and Rita, of Fork River; six brothers, Pete and Joe, of Yorkton, Sask.; Carlyle and Nick, of Toronto, Ont,; Steve and Jack, of Welland, Ont.”
  8. Josef (“Joe”) Panagabko, born 15 January 1908 in the Rural Muncipality of Mossey River, Manitoba,[70] of Yorkton, Saskatchewan, at the death of his sister Nellie in 1955.
  9. Steve Panagabko (called Szczepan in the 1906 census), born 21 January 1911 in the Rural Muncipality of Mossey River, Manitoba,[71] of Welland, Saskatchewan, at the death of his sister Nellie in 1955.

VI. Line of John Panagabko, of Benito, Manitoba, and Arran, Saskatchewan

Paul Panagabko Rosalia ____ Frans Chrzanoski Marianna ____
Joannes Panagabko Magdalena ____ Jacob Parcey Anna ____
Anton Panagabko Maria Parcey
John Panagabko

1. Paul Panagabko, of Tsyhany; married by 1813, Rosalia ____. Known issue (order inferential):

  1. Rozalia Panagabka, born 1813-14 (by calculation), married (2) 11 [?] May 1856 in house no. 13, Tsyhany,[72] Frans Masioski. Their marriage record describes them as “Rozalia, Pauli et Rozaliæ Panagabko filia, aged 42 years, widow, and “Franciscus, Simeonis et Mariannæ Masioski filius,” aged 56 years, widower.
  2. 3Joannes Panagabko, born say 1825.

2. Joannes Panagabko, of Tsyhany, son of Paul Panagabko and Rozalia ____, was presumably born around 1825, and was still alive in 1859. He married by 1850, Magdalena Chrzanoski [Chrzanowski?], alive in 1859, daughter of Frans Chrzanoski and Marianna ____. Known issue:[73]

  1. 3Anton Panagabko, of Tsyhany, born 4 June 1850 in house no. 14, Tsyhany, baptized as Antonius, son of “Joannes, Pauli et Rozaliæ Panagabko filius” and “Magdalena, Francisci et Mariannæ Chrzanoski filia.”
  2. Agnes Panagabka, born 27 May 1858 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized as Agnes, daughter of “Joannes, Pauli et Rozaliæ Panagabko filius” and “Magdalena, Francisci et Mariannæ Chrzanoski filia.”
  3. Marianna Panagabka, born 31 October 1859 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Marianna, daughter of “Joannes, Pauli et Rozaliæ Panagabko filius” and “Magdalena, Francisci et Mariannæ Chrzanoski filia.”

3. Anton Panagabko, of Tsyhany, son of Joannes Panagabko and Magdalena ____, was born 4 June 1850 in house no. 14, Tsyhany, baptized as above, and was still alive in 1895. He married 16 November 1873 in house no. 13, Tsyhany,[74] Maria Parcey, born 1852-53 (by calculation), alive in 1895, daughter of Jacob Parcey and Anna ____. Their marriage record describes them as “Antonius, Joannis et Magdalenæ Panagabko filius,” unmarried man, aged 24 [a slight exaggeration], and “Maria, Jacobi et Annæ Parcy filia,” unmarried woman, aged 20. Four of Maria’s children’s baptismal records agree in calling her father Jacob, though two call him Josef. Known issue:[75]

  1. Catharina Panagabka, born 9 October 1882 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Catharina, daughter of “Antonius, Joannis Panagabko et Magdalenæ” and “Maria, Josefi Parcey et Annæ filia,” died 22
  2. Michalina Panagabka, born 28 September 1883 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Michalina, daughter of “Antonius, Joannis Panagabko et Magdalenæ” and “Maria, Jacobi Parcey et Annæ filia.” died 22 September 1884 (annotation in baptismal record).
  3. 4John Panagabko, born 22 June 1885 in house no. 76, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Joannes, son of “Antonius, Joannis Panagabko et Magdalenæ” and “Maria, Jacobi Parcey et Annæ filia.”
  4. Michael Panagabko, born 3 August 1887 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Michael, son of “Antonius, Joannis Panagabko et Magdalenæ” and “Maria, Jacobi Parcey et Annæ filia,” with godparents Nicolaus Parcey and Apolonia Panagabko [sic]. His baptismal record contains a later notation stating that he went to Canada.
  5. Anton Panagabko, born 5 June 1891 in house no. 13, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Antonius, son of “Antonius, Joannis Panagabko et Magdalenæ” and “Maria, Jacobi Parcey et Annæ.” His baptismal record contains a later notation stating that he went to Canada.
  6. Josef Panagabko, born 20 August 1895 in house no. 164, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Josephus, son of “Antonius, Joannis Panagabko et Magdalenæ” and “Maria, Josefi Parcey et Annæ.” His baptismal record contains a later notation stating that he went to Canada.

4. John Panagabko, son of Anton Panagabko and Maria Parcey, was born 22 June 1885 in house no. 76, Tsyhany, baptized as above, died 29 June 1974, apparently at Kamsack, Saskatchewan, and was buried with his wife at Vesna, Saskatchewan. The record contains a later annotation stating that he left for Canada on 4 February 1904, which would make him nearly 19 at the time. There are unmistakable indications that the Joannes Panagabko born at Tsyhany in 1885 was identical with John Panagabko of Benito, Manitoba, and Arran, Saskatchewan. The account given of this man in the local history of Pelly, Saskatchewan, published in 1988, contains a serious inconsistency. It describes him as having been born “in 1884 [sic] on the twenty-second of June … in a village named Tsihane,” and claims (with only slight exaggeration of his youth) that he was aged 17 on coming to Canada, but supplies for the time of his immigration the incompatible date “early spring of 1910,” which given a birth date of 1884 would have made him at least 25.[76] We have not found direct confirmation of the statement in the Tsyhany parish register that he came to Canada in 1904, and perhaps what really happened is that he left home that year, but only came to Canada in 1910. He married reportedly in 1911, apparently in Manitoba,[77] Anna Panagabko, born 1893-94 (by calculation), 2 April 1956, aged 62. The local history, which explicitly gives her maiden surname as Panagabko, states that she had previously been his fiancée, and came to Canada to join him. The only Anna Panagabka baptized at Tsyhany between 1892 and 1896 was Anna Panagabka, born 6 December 1894 and brought to Canada as an infant in 1897, daughter of Andrew and Maria (Bujar) Panagabko, afterwards of Ethelbert, Manitoba (see Line IV), but this cannot be her, as apart from the discrepant dates of immigration, this family cannot account for her known brother Nick, born in 1896 (see Line VII below). The local history of Pelly states that she had a brother named Nick Panagabko, who came to stay with her in 1913 and afterwards went [temporariliy] to Toronto, and this agrees with his biography. The local history of Pelly states that John Panagabko was joined in Manitoba by “both” of his brothers, though as we have seen the Tsyhany church register shows three of his brothers as immigrating to Canada. John and Anna Panagabko had three children. For a detailed account of their descendants see the local history of Pelly.

VII. Line of Nick Panagabko, of Benito, Manitoba, and Norquay, Saskatchewan

1. ____ Panagabko, apparently of Kajana, Galicia, where his son Nick was born in 1896. Known issue:

  1. Anna Panagabko, born 1893-94 (by calculation), 2 April 1956, aged 62; married John Panagabko (see Line VI above).
  2. 2Nick Panagabko, born 11 December 1896.

2. Nick Panagabko, born 11 December 1896, alive in 1979 (when he celebrated his 60th wedding anniversary). According to the local history of Norquay, Saskatchewan, “Nick Panagabko was born on December 11, 1896, in Kajana, a village in Austria. As a very young man, only 17, he came to Canada in 1913, to join his sister and brother-in-law who had arrived in the new land three years previously. His first Canadian job was in a harness and shoe repair shop in Toronto…. In 1916 … he arrived in Benito, Manitoba, and started a shoe repair shop.”[78] It will be seen that this account matches that of his sister Anna (Panagabko) Panagabko in Line VI above. He married 10 October 1919, Mary Hrabarchuk, of Benito, born ca. 1903, died 2 November 1981 at Norquay, daughter of John Hrabarchuk and Mehalena ____.[79] They had five children, for whom see the local history of Norquay. This work states that their son Edwin “played hockey in the national teams,” and we presume he was identical with Edwin Arnold (“Eddie”) Panagabko, born 17 May 1934 at Norquay, died 18 January 1979 at San Mateo, California, a professional ice hockey player who played 29 games in the National Hockey League, and later played with the Boston Bruins.[80]

The local history of Norquay includes a family portrait, but the reproduction contains too little detail to determine whether the son Edwin matches known photographs of Eddie Panagabko the hockey player. Several undocumented online sources identify Eddie Panagabko the hockey player as son of an entirely different Nick Panagabko, who appears with his family in the 1916 census of Dauphin, Manitoba, taken too early to show this Edwin. On geographical grounds, we think this attribution is probably false.
