NARRATIVE:

     Anthony was born between 1874 and 1875 Russia.3 He may have been born in April 1875 Russia.4 Anthony immigrated in 1894.1 Anthony and Marion (?) were married in 1898.4
     On 16 June 1900 Anthony was enumerated as the head of the household at 32 Scammell St., Manhattan in New York City, New York County, New York, in the federal census of 1 June 1900, along with their daughter, Youcardo. According to the census, the family rented their home. It also noted that Anthony was born in Russia, as were his parents. It also noted that he was an alien and had immigrated to the United States in 1894. Anthony worked as a coat presser, and had not been out of work during the previous year. He could read and write, but could not speak English.4
     On 28 April 1910 Anthony was enumerated as the head of the household at 784 Hubbard Ave. in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan, in the federal census of 15 April 1910. His wife, Marion, also lived there at the time of the enumeration, along with their children, Lottie, Anthony and Marion.5 Anthony Linsky, the father of Elizabeth Linsky, presented her for baptism on 4 December 1910 at St. Casimir Church in Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan.6
     On 29 January 1920 Anthony was enumerated as the head of the household in Windsor Town, Hartford County, Connecticut, in the federal census of 1 January 1920. His wife, Marion, also lived there at the time of the enumeration, along with their children, Anthony, Marion and Elizabeth.1
     On 22 April 1930 Anthony was enumerated as the head of the household at R.F.D. 1 in Bloomfield, Hartford County, Connecticut, in the federal census of 1 April 1930. His wife, Marion, also lived there at the time of the enumeration, along with their children, Anthony, Marion and Elizabeth. The family lived on a general farm and owned a radio. A boarder, John W. Degnan, age 51, lived at the homestead as well. He was said to be employed as a farm laborer - we might presume on the family's farm - and was born in Connecticut. It was furthermore reported that Mr. Degnan's father was born in England, and mother in the Irish Free State. It finally notes that Mr. Degnan was an alien who immigrated in 1869, although this would contradict the information provided that he was born in Connecticut.. Tony, as he was referred to in the census, owned his farm, which was valued at $18,000. The census indicated he was born in Lithuania between 1874 and 1875 to Lithuanian parents, and got married at age 22. It further indicated that he immigrated to the United States in 1895 and had been naturalized. He could read and write, as well as speak English.7
     On 7 April 1940 Anthony was enumerated as the head of the household at Adams Road in Bloomfield, Hartford County, Connecticut, in the federal census of 1 April 1940. His children, Anthony, Marion and Elizabeth also lived there at the time of the enumeration. His son-in-law, Stanley Weaver, and 1 year old granddaughter, an unknown person , also lived there at the time.8

The census enumeration actually indicates that he was born in Russian Poland. According to the enumerator instructions for the 1910 U.S. Census, "In the case of persons who report that they were born in Poland, which is no longer an independent country, inquire whether the birthplace was in what is now known as German Poland, or Austrian Poland, or Russian Poland, and write the answer accordingly as Germany (Pol.), Austria (Pol.), or Russia (Pol.)." Interestingly enough, these same enumerator instructions order the enumerator to similarly record "Russia (Lith.) or Germany (Lith.)...for a person born in what was formerly known as Lithuania." This raises the question of exactly how Anthony may have identified himself ethnically at this time, whether Polish or Lithuanian, although the recording here would suggest he idenitfied as Polish.
