A cursory glance shows that Mr. Ferenc immigrated to the United States from Poland in 1907 and started a family with his wife Julie Dudek. They resided in Hamtramck in the 1930s with their 6 children. His daughter Bernice, who passed away last year, played a small role in the Clint Eastwood film Gran Torino.
Born in 1880 to Jan Ferenc and Marjanna Smelia, Mr. Ferenc died September 28, 1941.
I'll try to do some follow-up research as time permits.
