My mother's last name was Dowgiallo. Unfortunately, she died in 2011. Her story seems to mirror the one told by Ev K. My Mom's father came to U.S. in the early 1910's and livedin a town called Kearneyville (PA or WVA?) , where he apparently worked in the mines. My mom was born there, but returned to Poland with her family and lived outside VIlna. Fortunately my Mom married Wincenty Siemaszko (Another name that is sometimes considered Lithuanian) and returned to the States in 1933. f also have a cousin, Edward Dowgiallo and would be happy to provide his email address to anyone interested.

DOWGIA££O: This is the Polonised version of the Lithuanian name Daugela (whose roots translated into 'great pain').

SIEMIASZKO: Polonised spelling of a Belarusian name probably meanin 'son of Siemion' (Ruthenian for Szymon/SImon).

Don't know if this is the same Antoni you were looking for.

Zadora was one of five clans to which the well-born Dowgiałłos belonged. The others were Abdank, Dzialosza, Leliwa and an own-name clan whose c.o.a was a take-off on the Działosza heraldic device.

Dowgiałło is the polonised form of the Lithuanian name Daugela.

I just came across this thread and even though it is 2020, maybe still active; My name is Bill Dowgiallo. My grandfather(Wladyslaw; changed to Walton, then Walter) emigrated to the US from Russia (Lithuania) in the early 1900's and settled in Port Chester,NY. My dad was his eldest.

Hi, Eva, I am a granddaughter of Kazimierz Dowgiallo. The family originated from Krewy in Lithuania (it was a Polish estate) and they escaped from murderous Russians to Poland around 1942. Some family members who didn't leave were hijacked by communists Russians and died in Siberia. Some settled in the USA. I hope it helps. Cheers.

@Polonius3
I am a member of the Abdank clan from Dowgiallos in Krewy. The Abdank crest is in Wroclaw in Poland. My grandfather was Kazimierz Dowgiallo and my grandmother was Anna Trumpowska. Some from the Trumpowski clan are in Canada and the US. Some of them decided to be Trumpauskas I.e. Lithuanians. I know a couple of Trumpowski brothers from Wroclaw; they both migrated to Canada and one of them is Trumpowski and the other is Trumpauskas - they don't speak to each other. There are many interesting stories out there :)
