Kumpakiske-Kumpakszke-Schultz Family records are from papers and family records compiled and collected by: Lynette Schultz-Lawlis, May 12, 1990 (daughter of Walter and Jennette Martin Schultz) Annanel Schultz and other family members as listed below.
Original family name: the Lithuanian spelling would be Kumpakiske; Kumpakszke (the Polish spelling was used in family letters).
Henry (Henrick) Kress Kumpakiske/Kumpakszke (changed to Schultz) born: May 15, abt 1872 or 1875 in Russua, died: Oct 27, 1961, at Singing River Hospital, Pascagoula, Jackson County, MS. buried Union Cememtry, Moss Point, Jackson County, MS. USA
Notes on Henry:
His mother's name was possibly Anna. Schultz or Shultz may have been her maiden name. We were told of cousins in Germany, but no info on them. His father, ? Kumpakiske/Kumpakszke died May 25, 1911, in Lithuania.
Henry had 2 brothers: Kristupas, who remained in Lithuania, and George, who came to America. There was a sister, Ane, in Lithuania. Henry's daughter, Annie Mae Schultz-Pendarvis, said that another sister, Cassanda, came to America also with Henry. But, no info on her.
Henry's family lived on a large "plantation". (Don't know if they owned it or simply worked there). They raised horses; the black and white ones were bought by the Russia Army.
Wife: Marie Meje/Mie/Mey, born: May 15, or June 18, 1883, in Lithuania; died: May 31, 1963, Pascagoula, MS, buried Union Cementry. Moss Point, MS. USA
Marie's mother's name was probably Rozalija Meja/Mie/Mey. Marie had 1 sister, and 3 brothers. Two of the brothers died from drinking water from a well that was poisoned from dead dogs being in it. In winter, Marie worked in the home of a Jewish lady. Marie only went to school for 3 days of her younger years. In 1913, Rozalija and her husband were living with a daughter, in the village of Kazoku. Another son lived nearby.
Henry was in Marie's village soon after being discharged out of the Russian Navy. Marie's father was injured in a lumber mill accident, and Henry stayed to help her family harvest crops.
Henry and Marie were married. Marie's wedding dress was white with tiny blue flowers, and sprigs of "merrit" leaves around the bottom. The leaves were fragrant and filled the Lutheran Church with fragrance. They had one child while still in Lithuania. The child only lived 13 days.
Henry left later on, to keep from having to serve in the Russian Navy a second time. He said all they gave you to eat was black bread and water.
Henry, George, and a sister Cassandra left Lithuania for America from Riga, Laviva (then Russia), on the Ship "Pennsylvania" on Feb 15, 1903. Arriving in New York July 12, 1903.
According to the manifest of the "Pennsylvania", they left Europe from Hamburg, Germany on June 19, 1903. Henry's final destination was Pittsburgh, Penn., to stay with his brother-in-law, John Kissel, at 2806 Pacot Street. Henry had $3.50 in money, and listed his profession as "horse worker". Later all went to live in Chicago, IL. No info on John.
In order to earn money to send for Marie, Henry went to work at the Chicago, IL shipyards as a ship carpenter. Someone he worked for suggested that he change Kumpakiske/Kumpakszke to something that would be easier to spell and pronounce.
Marie arrived in New York (date unknown), she was sick on the trip over. Her daughter, Anna, later said it was drinking coffee, something she never had before.
Henry and his family lived at 71 Maude Ave, Chicago when Walter was born. At one time his brother George lived at 1433 Ashland Ave, Chicago. George married and had a son who died at age 13. There is no info on his wife or other children.
