CHRONOLOGY:
Julianna was the daughter Piotr Lignau called Lignal and his wife Marianna nee Gladys from the clan Nicuja. The Lignau were an old Roman Catholic noble family of German origin that emigrated to Mazovia, Poland from "Germany". It is believed that they came from East Prussia as colonists seeking land. The Gladys are a Roman Catholic very old noble family of Silesian (Polish) origin. They immigrated to Mazovia during the 17th century.

Julianna was a singular personality in her appearance, character and opinions. She was a disciple of Count Tolstoy in her philosophy and life style. Whether this was by accident or by education is not known. She supported her husband in his political activities, but she was more interested and involved in social problems in the village. She strongly believed that every one should work for a living and live from his work. She worked in the fields with the farm laborers and frequently wore the clothing of a peasant, which embarrassed the family. She did not think that Poland offered any future for her sons.

1900: Her sons were apprenticed to businesses she thought would prepare them for a better life in America. After the tragic death of her husband and when she thought her sons were ready old the family farm. The money was divided between her sons to be used to open small factories in America. She retained a small house to live in and a good field to grow her food.

1910-11: There was a shortage of food in the Chorzele area because of bad weather and bad crops. The children of the village would ask her for food. She was generous. Julianna died at the age of 59 of starvation. She gave all her food to the children. The only thing they found in her house to eat was a half a pound of tea.

1911-1939: For many years after her death the children to whom she gave food, would place flowers on her grave in the spring. She left instructions that her tomb stone should give her first name, the year of her birth, death and the word Laborer in red letters.

Julianna was over 6 ft. tall; many Dressel girls inherited their height from her. She was always thin and was not a beautiful woman. But, "she had a face one never forgot". Julianna distributed what property she inherited and what possessions she had before her death, she left no estate.

Jozef Damazy was a short man, and enjoyed dressing well. In fact he dressed like a banker, even when he worked in his fields. Jozef Damazy and Julianna made quite an appearance when together. He short and dressed like a banker, She very tall and dressed like a peasant. But, from all reports both of them were completely oblivious to their appearances and had a very good marriage.

Jozef and Julianna had three children, two boys and one girl. Two survived to adulthood. see XIX.1-3

Daughter of the noble Peter Lignau (Lignat) called Lignal and his wife the noble Marianna Lignau called Lignal nee Nieczuja Gladysz. Juliana was a follower of Count Leo Tolstoy.

The Lignals were the Roman Catholic Mazovian branch of a noble German family from East Prussia. According to Dr. Grygier, they were originally called Lignat v. Lemgow.
