    Notes 
    • From: A phone interview with Robert Pearl Keller -
      "Mary Duda came to the US with her brother, John Duda."
    • From an interview with Stella Fornal.

      My mother (Mary Duda) was a midwife and wanted me to become one.

      With a 'feather case' she travelled to the US with some friends where she met Frank Fornal and married him.

      She was a business woman; always had an idea for making money. She opened a skating rink. The children worked in a factory and operated the skating rink when they got home.

      They ran a small dairy business and sold milk to get by.

      She (Mary Duda) was known for her homemade bread with cheese and cream. She threw bread into the coal stove rather than using a pan like others making bread. The locals particularly enjoyed her bread.
