Thanks for your help.
I think that he is a relative of a friend of mine. I have been doing some research to try to find where his relatives came from in Lithuania. Every little piece of information helps to form a picture.
The following information was taken from the archives and I think that this must be the same Simas.
“In 1926 Zose Albaitis died - 3 weeks old, her F: Simas Albaitis, M: Monika
nee Dambrauskaite.”( Pajevonys)
The following information is taken from the 1914 reserve lists.
Jonas ALBAITIS, Andrius' son- born around 1892, a reservist in 1914,
lives in Egliniskiai village.
The above family are definitely related to the family that I have been researching and I think that Andrius and Jurgis are brothers.
Several other siblings came to the UK.
“The farmer Jonas ALBAITIS, Jurgis-Juozas' son,- born 1893/28/08, lives
in Aleksandrova village. Father: Jurgis-Juozas - 55 old,
Jonas' brothers: Vincent-30 old, escaped/or in an illegal stay. (V.B.
usually it means that a person was abroad), Pijus- 23 old, Simonas-14
Pijus left in 1926 for Brazil.
Andrius and his wife and younger son were killed in an explosion during WW1.
Was Simas fighting the Russians?
Simonas was born in 1899 in Aleksandravas as per your earlier link. He was in Polish captivity, he probably took part in the battles that were fought for Suvalkai. Independence war was fought at different times against Poles, the bolsheviks (Russians) and Bermontians (white Russians and Baltic Germans)
