Enoch Wojciechowski was my Great-Great Grandfather. My mother just received some information on him.
My grandmother had always said he was buried under the large tree on the west side of the cemetery towards the front.
He is said to have donated the land that the cemetery sits on to the church. Mary Holewczynski - see donations page for address
