Misc. Notes
The name Fabich (or Fabisz) appears to be of Polish origin and seems to be based on the Latin name Fabianus. It was common to take the parents first name extract the first few characters and suffix it by adding isz or ich which means (roughly) “son of”. This method of name contruction was called Patronymics and was used in the 12 & 13 Centuries. In the 14 centuries, Surnames started being used and passed down by the Slavs. In 1990, there were 479 Fabichs and 553 Fabiszs living in current day Poland. This is according to Kazimierz Rymut in his book Nazwy Miast Polski.

The 1935 and 1936 San Francisco Directories list a Hattie Fabish (wid John) as living with William and Frances Schneider. If this is Hedwig (she died in 1936 and is buried with Frances), they appear to think her husband’s name was John. Using the German naming convention, he may have been named Johan Ignadz. In this case, all legal records would have been under Ignadz (his secular name) and the first name would simply link him to his patron saint - most male children were named John something using this convention.

The children appear to have been named according to the Polish / Ukraninia convention of picking the closes Saint’s Feast day and naming the child after that saint (at least this works for Antonie and Bruno who are the only two I know the birth month for).
