Hi I'm looking for info on my Great Grandpa Joseph Albert Staron. He was Born May 6, 1888 in The town and community of Kolbuszowa is located in the northern part of the Rzeszów Province. He Immigrated in 1905 to Philadelphia, PA. What I really would love to find out is about his parents? I am told his father is Peter Staron and Mother is Rosalie (Saj) Staron? I would love to find out about Peter & Rosalie (Saj) Staron. They stayed in Poland I only have one photo of them. I was also told that when the Staron's came to the States that they changed the last name from Starone to Staron. If anyone could or be willing to help I would love that.

Thanks Jason Staron

Staroń entspricht mehr oder weniger solche Nachnamen wie Altmann, Altenhof usw.

Staroń more or less corresponds to such (German) surnames as Altmann, Altenhof &c.

STARGOŃ: This is unrelated to the oldness of Staroń. Here the rood-word is stragać (to tousle or tangle or muss up hair), so Stargoń would have been a nickname describing a tousel-head, someone who never used a comb or brush. In diaspora, someone may have added a "g" to Staroń for a better sound without regard for etymology.
