Stephan Walas – Cleveland Ohio

Stephan Walas Sr was born in Olesnica, Poland on the 26th of December 1896. He was listed as a brother-in-law to my grandfathers first cousin when they arrived at Ellis Island in 1912.
There was a connection between these families based on genealogical records from Olesnica. I’m looking for a photo of Stephan and his wife mary, as i believe he may be in some of the wedding photos I have posted on this site.
