Marianna Bendzmer is Seth Stankowski's third great grandmother.
Marianna Bendzmer was born in 1830 in Kolodzieje, Suleczno, Prussia, Poland. She married Joseph Formella on 10 February 1841 in Kolodzieje, Suleczno, Prussia, Poland.
The only documentation we have for Marianna is the 1905 Wisconsin census which indicated that she was living with her daughter and son-in-law in Sharon, Wisconsin.
As a Wisconsin resident at the turn of the twentieth century, Marianna was fairly typical in one respect. The 1900 census showed that 70% of Wisconsin's population was either foreign born or were the children of foreign born parents.
