The Torunczyk, Toronchik, Thorner Family from the area of Warsaw, Poland

My mother’s paternal grandmother was Glicke/Gussie Teronchek, born somewhere in Poland, perhaps near Warsaw, in about 1857.
I know that her parents were Meir and Sarah, and that’s all. She and her husband were likely cousins.

Glicke was married to Gedalia Lazar Chshunstofsky, born near Warsaw, in about 1854.
His parents were Yehuda Leib Chshunstofsky and Anna perhapsToronchik.
Gedalia took the name Thorner in the US, after the female Toronchik line.

Of course all spellings of Toronchik are arbitrary. I don’t have any documents from Poland.

Glicke's 1926 death certificate. Her mother was Sarah Teronchick.
The name of her father on this certificate may be an erroneous reference to her husband (father of informant Meyer Thorner).

I've (perhaps) got a double dose of Toronchik!
