SOŁONYNKA
(Солонинка)

Preface

The widow Mariya (Sołonynka) Warowy followed her married daughter Antonina (Warowy) Demchuk to Manitoba in 1904, and died there in 1914. Her unusually informative, if somewhat garbled, death record supplies clues enabling her origins to be found. These lay, on both sides, at Tsyhany [Цигани], in the parish of Skala, district of Borshchiv, Ternopil’, Galicia, Ukraine. Line I below gives her lineage, and Line II that of Onophrius Sołonynka, of Tsyhany, whose wife was a Warowy.

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 Mariya and her family. The name Sołonynka appears as Солонинка in records written in Cyrillic.

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:

  • Borislaw Bilash II (a Waroway descendant), formerly of Winnipeg, now of New Jersey, for bringing to our attention the passenger list which records the family of Maria (Sołonynka) Warowy.
  • Diana Kuzyk (a Warowy descendant), who supplied a copy of the 1914 death notice of Maria (Sołonynka) Warowy.
  • Gary Duschl (not a Sołonynka 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.

Mariya Sołonynka

1. Jacob Sołonynka, of house no. 39, Tsyhany, was born 1771-72, and was evidently still alive on 14 March 1842, as at the death of his second wife she is called his wife (uxor) rather than his widow (vidua). He married (1) by 1801, Maria Reszitnyk, who died before November 1811, daughter of Joannes Reszitnyk, who is named in the baptismal record of her daughter Catharina (1801).[1] He married (2) 12 November 1811 in the Catholic church, Tsyhany,[2] Marianna Szewcuza (? name unclear in record), born 1781-82 (aged 30 in 1811), alive in 1820 and probably in 1822, died 14 March 1842 at house no. 39 Tsyhany, allegedly aged 45 years, and buried two days later at Tsyhany as “Marianna, Jacobi Sołonynko [sic] uxor,”[3] daughter of Paulus Szewcuza (?), of Gusztyn [Гуштин]. Her age at death must be grossly understated, as it would make her only 14 or 15 at her marriage, in contradiction to the record, and some 25 years younger than her husband, an unlikely scenario. The record of their marriage gives the names of the parties (in latinized form) as “Jacobus Sołonynka,” of house no. 39, Tsyhany, aged 40 years, and “Marianna, Pauli Szewcuza [? illegible],” of Gusztyn, aged 30 years. If the reading “Szewcuza” is correct, it was perhaps a garbled memory of this name that led to their granddaughter Mariya (Solonynka) Warowy — who they may have helped raise after her parents’ early deaths — being erroneously referred to in her death record as a daughter of “J. Solonynka and Agathe Syracusa” (see below). Jacob’s address is also given as house no. 39 in the baptismal record of his daughter Maria (1801).
    Known issue:

(by first wife)

  1. Catharina Sołonynka, born 20 November 1801 in house no. 39, Tsyhany, baptized in the Catholic church as Catharina, daughter of Jacobus Sołonynka and Maria Reszitnyk (daughter of Joannes), with godparents Gabriel Kozak [husband of Eudoxia Sołonynka of Line II] and Agatha, wife of Anton Warowey.[4]
  2. Josaphat Sołonynka, born 1804-05 (probably in 1804), died 21 April 1872 in house no. 37, Tsyhany, aged 67 years, and buried two days later according to Catholic rites.[5] The name of his wife has not been noted, but he had at least two children:
    1. Georgius Solonynka, died 19 May 1840 in house no. 37, aged 4 weeks, and buried two days later as “Georgius, filius laboriosi Josaphati Sołonynka.”[6]
    2. Anna Sołonynka, daughter of Josaphatus, died 11 October 1847, aged 5 years, and buried two days later as “Anna, laboriosi Josaphati Sołonynka filia.”[7]
  3. Gregory Sołonynka, born 4 September 1805 in house no. 39, Tsyhany, baptized in the Catholic church as Gregorius, son of “Jacobus Sołonynka” and Maria filia Joannis Reszitnyk.”[8]
  4. Josef Sołonynka, born 18 September 1807, baptized as Josephus, son of Jacobus Sołonynka and Maria … [illegible].[9] A Maria, wife of Josephus Sołonynka, born 1811-12 (by calculation), died 25 December 1856 in house no. 37, Tsyhany, aged 44 years, and was buried two days later according to Catholic rites.[10]
  5. Stefan Sołonynka, born 16 April 1810, and baptized in the Catholic church, Tsyhany.[11] A Stefan Sołonynka married by 1832, an apparent kinswoman, Anna Sołonynka, and had a son:
    1. Fedor Sołonynka, born 1832-33 (by calculation), died 25 March 1850, aged 17 years, buried two days later as “Theodorus, filius Stefani Sołonynka et Annes de domo Sołonynka.”[12]

(by second wife)

  1. Anna Sołonynka, born __ February 1814 [date torn in record], and baptized in the Catholic church,[13] who as “Anna Jacobi et Mariannæ Sołonynka filia,” aged 18 years, married 13 February 1832 at house no. 31, Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[14] Stefan Duncow, born 1805-06 (by calculation), son of Michael Duncowych and Marianna ____. Their marriage record names them as “Anna, Jacobi et Mariannæ Sołonynka,” unmarried woman, aged 18 years, and “Stephanus, Michaelis et Mariannæ Duncowych [genitive plural of Duncow] filius,” unmarried man, aged 26 years. Known issue:[15]
    1. Marianna Duncow, born 26 February 1835 in house no. 39, Tsyhany, baptized the next day as Marianna, daughter of “Stephanus, Michaelis et Mariannæ Duncow” and “Anna, Jacobi et Mariannæ Sołonynka filia.”
    2. Regina Duncow, born 27 May 1837 in house no. 39, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Regina, daughter of “Stephanus, Michaelis et Marian[n]æ Duncow” and “Anna, Jacobi et Mariannæ Sołonynka filia,” with godparents Paulus Czornobay and Apolonia Parcejowa.
    3. Sophia Duncow, born 5 February 1853 in house no. 39, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Sophia, daughter of “Stephanus, Michaelis et Marian[n]æ Duncow” and “Anna, Jacobi et Mariannæ Sołonynka filia.”
  2. 2Prokop Sołonynka, born 1820-21, alive in 1842.
  3. Maria/Marianna/Anna Sołonynka, born probably about 1822-23 (aged 23 in 1847, 44 in 1866), died 18 October 1866 in house no. 85, Tsyhany, reportedly aged 44 years, and buried as “Maria Sołonynka, uxor Demetrii Kostiow.”[16] Her parentage is proved by the (admittedly somewhat garbled) baptismal record of her daughter Anastasia. She married 24 October 1847 in house no. 54, Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[17] Demetrius Kostiow, son of Fedor Kostiow and Anna ____. Their marriage record names them as “Demetrius, Theodori et Anna Kostiowych [genitive plural of Kostiow] filius,” aged 22 years, unmarried man, and “Marianna, Joachimi [an error for Jacobi] et Mariannæ Sołonynka,” aged 23 years, unmarried woman. While we would normally regard the name of a woman’s father as given in her marriage record as carrying more weight than the same information in a baptismal record of her child, in this case we feel that the baptismal record of her daughter Anastasia is more plausible, particularly considering the absence of other evidence for a man named Joachim Sołonynka. Known issue:
    1. Anastasia Kostiow, born 28 October 1853 and baptized as Anastasia, daughter of “Demetrius, Theodori et Anastiæ Rudyk [sic]” and “Marianna, Jacobi at Mariannæ Solonynka.” died 20 January 1864 in house no. 85, Tsyhany, at the age of 10 years, and buried two days later as “Anastasia, Demetrii Kostiow et Annæ Sołonynka filia.”[18]

2. Prokop Sołonynka, of house no. 41, Tsyhany, son of Jacob Sołonynka and Marianna Szewcuza (? name uncertain) of Tsyhany, was born 1820-21, and died 25 July 1844, the record stating his age as 25 years although he was probably even younger.[19] He married (as her first husband) 3 November 1839 in house no. 41, Tsyhany, according to Roman Catholic rites,[20] Agneta Baszczak, born 1822-23, died 13 March 1849 in house no. 53, Tsyhany, and buried according to Roman Catholic rites as “Agnes, Martini Latusz uxor,” aged 25 years [sic],[21] daughter of Luca Baszczak and Francisca Panagabka. The record of their marriage gives the names of the parties (in latinized form) as “Procopius, Jacobi et Mariannæ Sołonynka filius,” aged 18, and “Agnes, Lucæ Bazczak [sic] et Franciscæ filia,” aged 16. Agneta is similarly described, but with her age given as 23 (sic), when she was married for the second time on 4 November 1844, in house no. 5, Tsyhany,[22] to Martin Latusz, aged 22 years, son of Andrea Latusz “de Muszkat” and Teresia ____.
    On the death of Agneta (Baszczak) (Sołonynka) Latusz, her daughters were left double orphans of about 10 and 7 years, respectively. It is evident that her identity was only vaguely remembered by her younger daughter Mariya, as she is called “Agneta Kubin” in the 1865 baptismal record of Mariya’s son Joannes Warowy, “Anna” in the baptismal records of five of Mariya’s other children, and “Agathe Syracusa” (a possible confusion with the surname of her mother-in-law, Marianna Szewcuza) in Mariya’s death record.
    Known issue:

  1. Anna Sołonynka, born 1839-40, alive in 1873. She married 19 October 1862 in the Catholic church, Tsyhany,[23] Stefan Skawinski, born 25 May 1830 in house no. 92, Tsyhany, son of Josephus Skawinski and Maria Rudnicka.[24] Their marriage records refers to them as “Anna, Procopii et Agnetis Sołonynka,” aged 22 years, and “Stephanus, Josephi et Mariæ Skawinski,” aged 31 years. Known issue:
    1. Maria Skawinski, born 18 September 1863 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Roman Catholic Church as Agatha, daughter of “Stephanus, Josephi et Mariæ Skawinski” and “Anna, Procopii et Agnetis Sołonynka.”[25]
    2. Agatha Skawinska, born 28 August 1873 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic Church as Agatha, daughter of “Stephanus, Josephi Skawinski et Mariæ” and “Anna, Procopii Sołonynka et Agathæ [an error for Agnetis].”[26]
    3. Michael Skawinski, born 2 October 1878 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic Church as Michael, son of “Stephanus, Josephi Skawinski et Mariæ” and “Anna, Procopii Sołonynka et Agata[e] [an error for Agnetis].”[27]
    4. Teresa Skawinska, born 18 February 1882 in house no. 52, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic Church as Teresa, daughter of “Stefanus, Josefi Skawinski et Mariæ” and “Anna, Procopii Sołonynko [sic] et Agatæ [an error for Agnetis].”[28]
  2. 3Mariya Sołonynka, born 1842-43.

3. Mariya Sołonynka, daughter of Prokop Sołonynka and Agneta Baszczak of Tsyhany, was born 1842-43 (aged 20 in 1863), probably at or near Tsyhany, and died 12 March 1914 at Lake St. Martin, in the Rural Municipality of Coldwell, Manitoba, of “senility.”[29] She was not more than two years old at the death of her father. She married 2 May 1863 in the Greek Catholic Church, Tsyhany,[30] Martin Warowy (for further details and their descendants see under Warowy), of Tsyhany, born 1838-39 (aged 24 in 1863), alive in 1865 but died by 1904 when his wife is called a widow, son of Wasyl Warowy, presumably of Tsyhany, by the latter’s wife Irena ____. Their marriage record, in Latin, refers to them as “Martinus, Blasii et Irenae Warowy filius” aged 24 years, and “Maria, Procopii et Agnetis Sołonynka filia,” aged 20 years. The widowed Maria Warowy, with her sons Peter and Fedor, departed from Hamburg on the S.S. Blücher on 13 April 1904, arriving on 24 April at New York. The entry gives the family’s nationality as Austrian and “race” as Polish, last residence as Cygany, and final destination as Winnipeg, Manitoba, with a note that they were going to join “brother of [sic] law Wasyl Demczuk [of] Winnipeg.”[31] The notation describing Wasyl Demczuk as a brother-in-law falls not beside Mariya’s name but rather beside that of one of her sons; and whether or not this was intentional it is correct, agreeing with the verifiable statement that the son Peter and Mrs. A[ntonina] Demchuk were siblings. The passenger list gives Mariya’s age as 58, implying a birthdate of 1845-46 and in reasonably good agreement with her marriage record. But records of her in later life contain increasingly preposterous statements respecting her age. “Mary” Warowy is found in the household of her son Peter at Winnipeg in the 1911 census, with a stated age of 85 years and year of birth of 1826 (which is nine years before her parents’ marriage).[32] Her son Peter, explicitly identified as such, was the informant for her death. Her death notice, with an even more exaggerated age, reads:

Death of Mrs. Mary Waroway. St. Martin, Man., March 13 [1914] — Mrs. Mary Waroway, aged 89, died at 2 o’clock yesterday morning. The funeral party will leave tomorrow for St. Laurent, where service will be held at the Roman Catholic church. Deceased lived here with her son Peter Waroway for two years, and prior to this was for ten years a resident of Winnipeg. Two daughters at Sifton, Man., and three sons and one daughter in Austria survive.[33]

II. The line of Onophrius Sołonynka

Damian Sołonynka Pelagia ____ Josef Kozłowski [?]      
Pantaleon Sołonynka Francisca Kozłowski [?]
Onophrius Sołonynka

1. Damian Sołonynka, of Tsyhany, born say 1750, whose name is known only from the marriage record of his son Pantaleon. He married by 1784, and probably by 1772 (based on estimated birthdate of daughter Eudoxia), Pelagia ____, alive in 1796. As “Pelagia, Damiani Sołonynka uxor” she served as a godmother in the Roman Catholic church in 1784 (the surname in the entry being now compltely illegible).[34] As “Pelagia, uxor Demioni Sołonynka uxor” she served as a godmother in the Greek Catholic church on 11 February 1797 for a child of Joannes Ostapow and Anna Kesil.[35] As she was still alive so close to the estimated date of birth of Damion’s son Pantaleon, we assume she was Pantaleon’s mother. Known issue:

  1. Eudoxia Sołonynka, born say 1772 (assuming she was at least 16 at her marriage), alive in 1808. She married by 1788, Gabriel Kozak, alive in 1808, son of Wasyl Kozak (who is named in the 1796 baptismal record of his son Fedor). Gabriel Kozak served as godfather to Catharina Sołonynka, born 20 November 1801 and baptized in the Catholic church, Tsyhany, daughter of Jacob Sołonynka and Maria Reszitnyk (see Line I). Known issue:[36]
    1. Rosalia Kozak, born 10 October 1788 in house no. 7, Tsyhany, baptized as Rosalia, daughter of “Gabr[i]el … [illegible]” and ”Eudoxia, de patre Demianis Sołonynka nata.”
    2. Jacob Kozak, born 26 October 1793 in house no. 6, Tsyhany, baptized as Jacobus, son of “Gabriel Kozaczek” and ”Eudoxia, Fabian[i] [sic] Sołonynka nata,” with godmother Sophia Warowey.
    3. Fedor Kozak, born 23 February 1796 in house no. 7, Tsyhany, baptized as Theodorus, son of “Gabriel Bazilii Kozak” and “Eudocia, Demian[is] Sołonynka,” with godmother Sophia Larzycki.
    4. Maria Kozak, born 18 March 1797 in house no. 6, Tsyhany, baptized as Maria, daughter of “Gabriel Laurin [?]” and ”Eudoxia, Damiani Sołonynka filia,” with godmother Sophia Laursicka [unclear; probably intended for Larzycka], died by 1801, when another daughter was given the same name. The father’s surname in the baptismal record is recorded not as Kozak but rather as something similar to that of the godmother, but the identity of this child seems clear enough based on the name of the mother.
    5. Michael Kozak (twin to Maria), born 3 November 1801 in house no. 7, Tsyhany, baptized as Michael, son of “Gabriel Kozak” and “Eudoxia, filia Damianis Sołonynka.”
    6. Maria Kozak (twin to Michael), born 3 November 1801 in house no. 7, Tsyhany, and baptized as Maria together with her brother Michael.
    7. Stefan Kozak, born 9 December 1803 in house no. 7, Tsyhany, baptized as Michael, son of “Gabriel Kozakow” and “Eudoxia, de patre Demione Sołonynka nata.”
    8. Joannes Kozak, born 1 May 1806 in house no. 6, Tsyhany, baptized as Joannes, son of “Gabriel Kozakow” and “Eudoxia, filia Demione Sołonynka.”
    9. Maximilianus Kozak, born 7 September 1808 in house no. 6, Tsyhany, baptized as Maximilianus, son of “Gabriel Kozak” and “Eudoxia, filia Demeonis Sołonynka.”
  2. Anna Sołonynka, born probably by 1787 (assuming she was at least 16 at her marriage), alive in 1814. She married (1) before 1802, Andreas Iwanciow, died 1805-09. She married (2) some time in 1806-1811, Andreas Jakowiszyn. Known issue:[37]

    (by first husband)

    1. Anastasia Iwanciow, born 16 April 1802 in house no. 5, Tsyhany, baptized as Anastasia, daughter of “Andreas Iwanciow” and “Anna de patre Demione Sołonynka nata.”
    2. Maxmilian Iwanciow, born 21 January 1804 in house no. 126, Tsyhany, baptized as Maximilianus, son of “Andreas Iwanciow filius” and “Anna de Demione Sołonynka nata.”
    3. Stefan Iwanciow, born 21 December 1805 in house no. 126, Tsyhany, baptized as Stephanus, son of “Andreas Iwanciow filius” and “Anna filia Damianis Sołonynka.”

    (by second husband)

    1. Georgius Jakowiszyn, born April 1810, baptized as Georgius, son of “Andreas … [faded]” and “Anna, filia Demionis Sołonynka.”
    2. Damian Jakowiszyn, born 1 September 1812, baptized as Damian, son of “Andreas Jakowiszyn” and “Anna, filia Demionis Sołonynka.”
    3. Andreas Jakowiszyn, born __ March 1814, baptized as Andreas, son of “Andreas Jakowiszyn” and Maria [sic] filia Demionis Sołonynka.”
  3. 2Pantaleon Sołonynka, born 1796-97 (by calculation).

2. Pantaleon Sołonynka, of Tsyhany, son of Damian Sołonynka and Pelagia ____, was born 1796-97 (by calculation), and was still alive in 1833. He married 21 November 1819 at Tsyhany (house number not stated), by Roman Catholic rites,[38] Francisca Kozłowski [?], born 1798-99 (by calculation), died 8 December 1864 in house no. 140, Tsyhany, aged 70 years, and buried two days later as “Francisca Kuka, rost. [?] Pantaleonem Sołonynka vidua.”[39] But their marriage record describes them as “Pantaleon, Damionis Sołonynka filius,” aged 24 years, and “Francisca, Josephi Kozłowski filia,” aged 20 years, and this surname seems more plausible than that given in her death record. Known issue:

  1. Anna Sołonynka, born 1823-24 (by calculation); married (as his second wife) 19 June 1848 at Tsyhany (house number not specified),[40] Joseph Kołodijczuk, son of Joannes Kołodijczuk and Anna ____. Their marriage record names them as “Josephus, Joannis et Annæ Kołodijczuk filius,” widower, aged 33 years, and “Anna, Pantaleonis et Franciscæ Sołonynka filia,” unmarried woman, aged 24 years.
  2. Maria Sołonynka, born 1831-32 (by calculation), died 4 November 1838 in house no. 113, Tsyhany, aged 6 years, and buried two days later as “Maria, filia Pantaleoni Sołonynka.”[41]
  3. 3Onophrius Sołonynka, of Tsyhany, born 1833-34 (aged 28 in 1862).

3. Onophrius Sołonynka, of Tsyhany, son of Pantaleon Sołonynka and Francisca Kozłowski [?], was born 1833-34 (by calculation), died 16 January 1876 in house no. 53, age illegible, and was buried two days later as “Onophrius Solonynka, maritus Catharinæ Warowy.[42] He married (1) 2 November 1856 in house no. 140, Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[43] Anna Junik, born 8 January 1836 (annotation in marriage record), died 22 January 1862 in house no. 82, Tsyhany, aged 25 years, and buried two days later as “Anna Junik, Onophrii Sołonynka uxor,”[44] sister of Apolonia Junik (wife of Adalbert Warowy) and daughter of Thomas Junik and Francisca Szczukulski.[45] Their marriage record names them as “Onophrius, Pantaleonis et Francisca[e] Sołonynka,” aged 24, and “Anna, Thomæ et Francisca[e] Junik filia,” aged 20, [born] 8/1 1836. He married (2) (as her first husband) 26 May 1862 in house no. 41, Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[46] Catharina Warowy, born 20 November 1838 in house no. 41, Tsyhany,[47] evidently alive at her husband’s death in 1876 as he is called her husband (maritus) rather than her widower (viduus), brother of Adalbert Warowy aforesaid, and daughter of Martin Warowy, of Tsyhany, by the latter’s wife Francisca Kubyn. Their marriage record names them as “Onophrius, Pantaleonis et Franciscæ Sołonynka filius,” aged 28 years, and “Catharina, Martini et Francinæ Warowy filia,” aged 24 years. Catharina married (2) 18 March 1879 in house no. 39, Tsyhany, by Roman Catholic rites,[48] Fedor Semczyszyn, born 1842-43 (by calculation), son of Joannes Semczyszyn and Catharina ____. Known issue:

He married by 1888, Xenia Miedrzik, daughter of Joannes Miedrzik and Anna ____. Known issue:
    1. Joannes Sołonynka, born 12 May 1888 in house no. 176, Tsyhany, baptized the same day as Joannes, son of “Michael, Onofrii Sołonynka et Annæ” and “Xenia, Joannis Mielnik et Annæ filia,” died 14 April 1890 (annotation in baptismal record).[50]

Julianna Sołonynka (a posthumous child), born 15 July 1876 in house no. 1, Tsyhany, baptized the same day in the Greek Catholic church as Julianna, daughter of “Onofrius, Jacobi [an error for Pantaleonis] Sołonynka et Annæ [an error for Franciscæ] and “Catharina, Martini Warowy et Franciscæ.”[54]
