was born in a Polish town on the Russian border. She journeyed to the United States with her husband, where they founded Solomonville, Arizona.

"I had my hands full, having at that time five children... It was impossible for me to take care of Charles, as he was very lively... Charles got to be a great help to us in the store and in every business transaction. If any child has repaid his parents for their trouble, he certainly has done so, and is a great comfort to us. All of our children have become a great blessing to us."
