Klodawa is just north of Lodz in the Posnan or Posen province. Before World War I, Poland was a province of the Russian empire. 

Chicago, Illinois saw a major expansion in industry in the 1920s and prohibition led to the Gangster Era from 1919 until 1933. It was the nation's railroad center.

She maried Louis Rose about 1920. He was born about 1895 in Illinois. Their children were born in Illinois. June Rose was born in 1921 and Marvin Rose was born May 20, 1925.
