My Polish Ancestors Are Historically Famous...They left their life in Poland, to come to North America. Two of their three sons died as a result. They worked farmland for an even split, where they settled as immigrants. The landowner was so impressed with my ancestor's work ethic, as a shining example of all Polish people, that he made him an offer. "If all Polish people are as agreeable and hard working as you are, I will hire as many as you care to invite. Within the year, 75 families moved to that tiny town in Texas, and the town is considered Polish as a result. There are historical markers beside my ancestors' graves, crediting them with this historical occurence.
