Roman Madey

Poland

This is a picture of my grandfather, Roman Madey, and my dad, Sam Maday. My grandfather immigrated from Krakow, Poland in the early 1900s landing at Ellis Island before settling in Western Pennsylvania in a small coal mining town, aptly named Coal Run! My dad was the youngest of 14 children fathered by Roman. Sadly, my grandfather passed away before I was born but I honor and owe our family legacy in America to him!
