Mikolaj Nicolas "Mike" Mazur
Birth: Nov. 4, 1889, Poland
Death: 1923
Cambria County
Pennsylvania, USA

My Grandma, Sophie Mary Gabrysh's first husband.

A Polish/Russian immigrant.

They married in 1910 & he was killed in a coal mining accident, a cave in, in late 1923 or (very early 1924). We were always told that he was "crushed by a lump of coal".

He died in either Barnesboro or St. Benedict & is buried in one of the 2 towns.

Father of Mikolaj, Mary, Joseph, Thomas, & Stanley, who was born after his father's death.


There has been much confusion as to his first name. His WWI Draft record, Pennsylvania marriage records, & US Census records refer to him as "Mike". His name was Mikolaj (Polish version of Nicholas) but Americans & the way they shortened names, used creative spelling, etc., at the time, turned Mikolaj into Mike.


Thanks so much to Juel for sponsoring this page. She is a real sweetheart & a terrific friend!

Kim, thank you for explaining your Grandpa Mike's given name, i.e. how Mikolaj (Nicholas) turned into Mike. I am researching my best friend's Polish family and it looks like the same happened with her g-grandfather. In America he is almost always "Mike"...(Read more)
