Pawel "Paul" Dolecki
Birth: Jun. 8, 1861, Poland
Death: Jul. 10, 1949
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

My Great Grandfather

Son of Jan & MaryAnna Dolecki.

Husband of Anna Kalinowski Dolecki.

Father of Angeline Dolecki Pocieznicki, Anthony Dolecki, John Dolecki, Anna Dolecki Wroblewski, Mary Dolecki Klimball, Katarzyna (Katherine) Dolecki Koper, Piotr Dolecki, Walter Dolecki, Agnes Dolecki Krajewski, and Frank Dolecki.

Anna, Paul, and their 3 oldest children, Angeline, Anthony, & John immigrated to America to the area known as, Poletown in Detroit, Michigan. This was the first large wave of Polish immigration to come to the Detroit area after the Civil War.

The Dolecki Family was one of the founding families of Sweetest Heart of Mary Catholic Church in 1889.

According to my older cousins and Census records Paul was a day laborer when he first came to Detroit and even when he was an older man. He valued a hard days work.
He always had a happy family, a home, and was still able to give, time and money, to help build the new Church (Sweetest Heart of Mary) and school for their community.

There's lot's I don't know about this man and wish I did.

He was a very handsome man. When I look at the pictures of him I see my cousins & where they got their facial features from.
