Andrzej Stanley Szczesny (c1885-aft1930), a.k.a. Andrew Szczesny, was a Polish immigrant to Jersey City, New Jersey.
Immigration to the United StatesEdit
Andrew came through Ellis Island April 2, 1910. The ship manifest states that he had plans to stay with his "brother" Stanislaw Szczesny (c1880-aft1920) at 160 Steuben Street in Jersey City. However, it appears that Stanislaw was Andrew's first cousin, rather than his brother. Prior to immigration, Andrew resided in Kucice, Plonsk, Poland.
