Joseph Leo Chinoski


Joseph Chinoski was born November 2, 1894 in the community of Parisville, Paris Twp, Huron County, in the “Thumb” region of Michigan.  He was the younger of the two sons of Peter Chinoski (1863-1938) and Catherine (Katarina) Lemanska (1870-1898).  His only sibling was his older brother Edward Peter who was born December 17, 1888.

Joseph’s mother died when he was only 3-1/2 years old.  Initially after her death, he moved in with his grandparents Ambrose (Ciechanowski) Chinoski and Frances Polk-Chinoski.  Grandma Frances was especially important at this time to help Joseph and Peter get over the trauma of losing their mother at such an early age.  By 1900, as shown in the 1900 Census for Paris Twp, Huron Co. MI, Joseph was living with his father Peter and his older brother Edward, on their father’s farm.
