I'm researching my husband's LEWANDOWSKI/LEVANDUSKI line in the Shelby/Ridgeway area. According to census records, Edward LEVANDUSKI immigrated in 1886 (or 1888) and I've found him and his family in Shelby in all available census records from 1892 onward. He's buried in Sacred Heart Cemetery, along with his second wife, Antoinette BUDZYNSKI. I wrote to Sacred Heart Church a few years ago, hoping to obtain a marriage record for Edward's marriage to Antoinette, and a death record for his first wife (Mary WISNOCK). Unfortunately, I learned that Sacred Heart church doesn't have any old records (pre-1900), and the priest advised me to try St. Mary's church in Medina for the records. Those records are microfilmed, and I went through them last night. Oddly enough, I found NO LEVANDUSKI/LEWANDOWSKI (or any other variation on that surname) records at all, and I checked both the index, and the individual records, from 1883-1912. Edward and Antoinette should have been married abo!
and there were only 10 marriages in that church in that year, so there's no way I could have missed the record.
My question to the list: Does anyone know of any other Catholic church that people in Shelby would have attended, that existed in the late 1800's? I'm pretty sure the family must have been Catholic; one daughter became a nun. I know there's another old Catholic church in Albion; would that have been too far to travel from Shelby? Does anyone have any other suggestions about where these records could be hiding? Any help is appreciated!

Over the weekend I've been getting a wave of Delivery Status

from German language spam that supposedly were sent by me. I have
not sent out any of these. I deleted them also.

We are searching for any information for a Nellie Mahoney b.ca.1865 and
living in Buffalo, New York in 1891.
Nellie's mother's maiden name was "McDermott". Her first name was either
Eleanor, Ann, Catherine, or Eliza. All were daughters of Thomas McDermott
(b.ca.1792 Ireland; d.20 Feb. 1867 Ridgeway, Orleans Co., New York) and his wife
Ellen. We are not certain as to which daughter married a "Mahoney" and had
Nellie, although Eleanor does seem the most likely prospect.
The only reference we have for Nellie is a statement in the Decatur, Macon
Co., Illinois newspaper dated 13 Feb. 1891: "Miss Nellie Mahoney of Buffalo,
New York arrived in the city yesterday to visit her uncle Henry McDermott of
East Jefferson Street." Henry was born 7 July 1837 Ireland; d. 12 May 1914
Decatur, Macon Co., Illinois.
We do hope someone will recognize these names. Thank you very much.
