According to jastrzabka stara parish marriage index Maria (Gonka) married jan Tabor in 1/20/1867 and Franciszka Gonka who was a former spouse to Stanislaw Tabor .And i know there is Gonka's in nebraska usa that married into my family tree over here around Duncan and columbus area.

I am also related to the Gonka's from Jastrzabka Stara, but immigrated to Chicago. I believe that my Gonka's are also related to the Gonka's that ended up in Nebraska, although I'm still trying to get a concrete connection. My great grandfather was Stanislaw Gonka who was born in Jastrzabka Stara in 1866 to Kajetan Gonka and Zofia Smagacz. He later married Anna Madura (her parents were Jan Madura and Katarzyna Pozdal) and immigrated to Chicago in 1903. I have also come across Tabor's that resided in Chicago.
