1938 - Leona & Marian

Leona Pietrzak, the daughter of Stanley Pietrzak and Clara Tillie Bukowski, photographed with her cousin Marian Elaine Murosky, the daughter of  Anthony Harry Murosky Jr. and Helen Tillie Bukowski at Trinity Cemetery.

The girls are standing behind the tombstones of their grandparents Vincinety Frank Bukowski & Franciska Kwiatkowski. The photograph was taken in Erie, Erie County, Pennsylvania.

The photograph was most likely taken in 1938. Vincinety Frank Bukowski died on April 27, 1930.  The grass in front of the grave appears to have grown in and the girls are still young. Leona would likely have been 7 years old and Marian would likely have been 3 years old.
