Franciszek Zabłocki:
. . . seems to have been born around 1864, based on the age of 40 listed on a 1904 ship manifest.
 
. . . lived in Wasilˇwka, according to the same manifest.
 
. . . emigrated to the U.S. for a second time in 1904.
 
He arrived at Ellis Island on 11 October 1904 on the Finland, which sailed from Antwerp.
 
He reported having been in the U.S. from 1895 to 1901.
 
. . . had at least three siblings: a much younger brother Adam, and two sisters, Ludwika and Katarzyna.
 
According to the 1904 manifest, he was travelling with a brother, Adam, whose age seemed to have been written as 17.
 
The brothers were going to their sister Ludwika, who lived at 109 Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York; I haven't been able to find a record of Ludwika's emigration.
 
A "Katha" [Katarzyna] Zabłocka, 18, arrived at Ellis Island on 15 September 1901 on the Phoenicia from Hamburg; her hometown was listed as Wasilowka, and her destination was Goshen (Orange County), NY, to her brother "Franz," who'd paid her passage.
 
. . . was a butcher, according to the 1904 manifest.
 
. . . was in Johnson[s], Orange County, New York, in 1905, according to his son's 1905 ship manifest.
 
. . . was married (as noted on the 1904 manifest), and had at least three children: Władysław, Maryanna, and Weronika.
 
. . . apparently returned to Wasilˇwka by 1910, at which time he was identified as the nearest living relative in Poland on his daughters' ship manifest.

Władyslaw Zabłocki:
. . . arrived at Ellis Island on 27 June 1905 on the Zeeland from Antwerp.
 
His name was spelled "Zablocky" on the manifest.
 
. . . was born around 1891, since he was listed as 14 on the 1905 manifest.
 
. . . had lived in Wasilˇwka before emigrating, according to the manifest.
 
. . . was meeting his father, Frank, in Johnson, Orange County, New York.
 
. . . was identified as a cousin of Franceszka Ostrowska, with whom he was emigrating. She was also going to Johnson to join her uncle "Joseph Smith" (Jˇzef Kozłowski).
 
. . . had apparently moved to Bayonne, New Jersey within the next 5 years.
 
His sisters' ship manifest noted that he was living at 74 1/2 East 23rd Street, Bayonne, New Jersey.

Maryanna Zabłocka:
. . . arrived at Ellis Island on 27 August 1910, having travelled on the Rotterdam from Rotterdam.
 
. . . seemed to have been born between 1895 and 1900.
 
It's not clear from the handwriting on the manifest whether she was listed as 15 or 10.
 
. . . was travelling with her sister, Weronika.
 
Since the handwriting also makes it difficult to determine whether Weronika was listed as 7 or 17, it's not clear which of the sisters is older.
 
. . . was joining her brother Władysław, who'd paid for her ticket, in Bayonne, New Jersey.
 
. . . had identified as her nearest living relative in Poland her father, Frank, who was living in Wasilˇwka.

. . . was travelling with her sister, Maryanna.
