Goldynski, Frank now engaged in the shoe manufacturing business in Three Lakes, Oneida County, who has rendered public service in several important offices, was born in German Poland, Feb. 2, 1874, son of Vincent and Wilhelmina (ZIGARLOSKI) GOLDYNSKI. The father, who was a shoemaker, followed his trade in his native land until 1887, when he emigrated with his family to the United States, proceeding west to Chicago, in which city he remained for several years. He then moved to San Francisco, Calif., where he spent the rest of his life; his wife died in 1884. They had four children: Stanley, now deceased; Charles of Three Lakes, Wis., Frank, also of Three Lakes; and Antoinette, deceased. Frank GOLDYNSKI attended school both in German Poland and in the United States, being 11 years old when he arrived in this country, being brought here two years before his parents came by his uncle, Anton ZIGARLOSKI, who settled in Chicago. There he remained until 1896, a period of 11 years, during which time he learned and worked at the trade of machinist. He then came to Three Lakes, Wis., and for the two succeeding winters worked in the woods as a lumberjack. He then erected a bulding in the village and opened a store for the sale of dry goods and shoes, which he conducted for 14 years, or until 1910, when he went to the far West, working for two years as a lumber cruiser in the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. In 1912 he returned to Three Lakes, Wis., and went into the shoe manufacturing business which he has since followed, making a specialty of pack shoes, cruisers' shoes and lumberman's shoes. At time he has traveled selling his output directly to the lumbermen, his brother Charles, who is in partnership with him, having charge of the shop during his absence. He has served as supervisor and assessor of the town of Three Lakes and was one year justice of the peace. In July, 1923, he entered into partnership with Otto TRICHOK in the garage business under the firm name of the Three Lakes Garage. In the spring of 1923 he was elected treasurer of the town of Three Lakes.
