From Lois Abromitis Mackin:
I recently learned that Rev Peter Abromaitis (1854-1911), pastor of several R.C. churches in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, was the brother of Dr Joseph Abromaitis (1867-1927) of Baltimore and Waitekus Abromaitis (1866-?), also of Baltimore. There was another brother named Frank who seems not to have immigrated to the U.S. Rev Peter was ordained in Suvalkija gub. I don’t know where he was born. Dr Joseph’s naturalization paper says he was born in “Solceniki.” Rev Peter’s DC says his parents were Joseph Abromaitis and Catharine Kubilus.
