John and Bertha Sositko

Jan "John" and Bronislawa Rosalia "Bertha Rose" (Zlatykanicz) Sositko 'Susitko' in the 1930's or 1940's in Hamilton, Butler County, Ohio. They were married in Hamilton, Ohio in December 1908 (between Christmas Day and New Year's Eve). John and Bertha were both born in Muszyna, Poland. John was bornin 1882, the son of Stephen Susitko and Marianne Makowicz. Bertha was born in 1883, the daughter of Peter 'Piotr' 'Petrus' Zlatykanicz and Apolonia F. Chmielowska. John and Bertha were Catholic and they were members of St. Joseph's Parish in Hamilton, Ohio. They're buried in St. Stephen's cemetery.
Several family members (descendants of four of their children) has this same exact picture of John and Bertha.
I have a copy of an audio tape of John talking in English with family members and singing songs in Polish on Christmas Day, December 25, 1962. One of the songs he sings sounds like the Christmas song called Gloria in Excelsis Deo.
