About the Kasajewa-Tyszkiewicz sisters

I am going to start telling you about the Kasajewa-Tyszkiewicz sisters with the publications that I know. Their mother was Pielagieja Arturawna Tyszkiewicz (1875 — 1943) — the daughter of Count Arthur Władysławowicz Tyszkiewicz (1840 -?).

In the book by Teresa Zielińska "Poczet polskich rodów arystokratycznych" (Wydawnictwa Szkolne i Pedagogiczne. Warszawa 1997) it is mentioned:

Kontynuację rodu zapewnił więc głownie trzeci syn Jerzego Mikolaja, Honoriusz (zm. 1798), choć miał z malżeństwa z Teklą Bohuszewiczówną h. Gozdawa tylko jednego syna Ferdynanda (zm. 1845), głuchego (na skutek przebytej ospy) i ułomnego. Temu to Ferdynandowi zapisał bogaty krewny, Wincenty Tyszkiewicz (zm. 1816) swe dobra Białopole, część dawnej majętności berdyczowskiej. Utrzymaniu tego majątku w całości sprzyjał fakt, źe Ferdynand miał znowu tylko syna jtdynaka Władysława Кonstantego (zm. 1887), który dochował się wprawdzie w małźeństwie z Marią Krzyżanowską trzech synów, ale jeden z nich, Artur, zesłany na Sybir przepądł bez wieści.

But on the Internet on the website of the city of Berdychiv in the section «History» the following information is published:

Participants in the uprising of 1863 were punished much more severely than insurrectionists in 1863. Shootings, deportations, penal servitude in Siberia and the forfeiture of the entire property changed the position of the Right-Bank gentry radically. Thus, Arthur Tyszkiewicz, one of the indirect descendants of Jan Tyszkiewicz, spent 20 years in exile and returned to Berdychiv after amnesty.

There is no any information about the wife and daughter of Arthur Tyszkiewicz.
Though, by putting the dates together, it appears probable that he came back from Siberia with his wife and daughter Pielagieja.

Pielagieja Arturawna got married to Konstanty Grigoriewicz Kasajew. He was a lawyer. They lived in Zvenyhorodka (now the Cherkasy Oblast) and later moved to Kiev. They had four daughters. Their images can be seen in the picture in the Lahojsk museum.

I'll begin with the story about my mother Jewgienija Konstantinowna (her married name Seredyak-Kasajewa). She was born on 27 September, 1903. In 1924, she got married to Vladimir Romanovich Seredyak. He was a teacher. Their daughter Volya was born in the same year, and I, their son Victor was born in 1939. My father was from the village Letnya (now the Lviv province). As a volunteer of the Ukrainian Galician Army, he defended the Ukrainian People's Republic and stayed at the Grand Ukraine. We lived at the places of father's work in the Vinnytsia province. My father served in the Red Army and died at the front in 1944. He was buried in the Ternopil province. My mother died in 1952. She was buried in Pogrebische in the Vinnytsia province. My sister Volya worked at the bank in Pogrebische. She had a daughter Svetlana and Ludmilla. My sister died in 1996 and she was buried in Ruzhyn (the Zhytomyr Oblast). As an agriculturist and agrarian economist, I worked at the collective farm, and then in the management of agriculture. I'm a pensioner. I live in the city of Uzhgorod. I have two sons - Yevgeny and Andrey and four grandchildren.

The eldest of the sisters Zinaida Konstantinowna Kasajewa-Tyszkiewicz (her married name Kapulovskaya) was born in 1901, she lived in Kiev. Her husband Ivan Dmitrievich  Kapulovsky was deputy to the Commander of the Kiev Military District I.E. Yakir. He was repressed and killed together with all top commanders of the district in 1937. He was posthumously rehabilitated. Her granddaughters Ludmila and Elena –were doctors. Elena Ivanovna Vinarskaya is a Doctor of Medical Sciences. She lives in Kiev.

Elena Konstantinowna Kasajewa - Tyszkiewicz (her married name Moskvicheva) was born in 1907. She was married to an officer and border guard Timofey Fyodorovich Moskvichyov. He retired with the rank of lieutenant colonel. They took up their residence in Mukachevo in Zakarpattia. Elena Konstantinowna was often seriously ill. They had no children. She died in 1964.

Wiera Konstantinowna Kasajewa - Tyszkiewicz (her married name Beloborova) was born in 1910. Her husband Georgy Ivanovich Belobrov was an officer, major and commander of the regiment. He was a participant of the battle of Stalingrad. He died in 1953.  They lived in Moscow. Their daughter Tatyana (1932 - 2005) was a military doctor.
