John Pavlovsky

John Pavlovsky was born in in Poland in 1842.  According to the census, he immigrated here with his wife Victoria in 1872.  Among his many children were two daughters, Annie and Frances, who are connected to the Byers family.

Let’s look at two of Redin’s kids… Matilda Jane Byers Mashburn and Thomas Francis Byers (Frank).

Matilda Jane had a son named John Mashburn (and John would be Frank’s nephew)…HE married Frances Pavlovksy

Frank married Annie Pavlovsky (Frances’ sister)

So…two sisters married into our wonderful family, and this is a picture of their father

  • John Pavlovsky was my great-great grandfather. Sophia was my great grandmother, married to Bartow Frank Edwards. I have a photo of all of John & Victoria’s children together as adults, but it is not very clear. Do you have any photos of Sophia or Bartow Edwards?
