Hi, Mike. I don't know them but I've got obituaries for John P.
Sherbak and Elizabeth Kohut's son Joseph M. Sherbak, Joseph's wife
John's wife Elizabeth Kohut's obit (she was born in Czechoslovakia
Feb. 2, 1889 to Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Kohut; she wed John Sherbak in 1905
and they came to America in 1910, settling in Lisbon Falls) and
Elizabeth Kohut's husband John (his obit. says he was born in
Czechoslovakia, July 9, 1884, the son of Joseph and Elizabeth (Yager)
Sherbak; John first came to U.S. in 1902 and worked for Pejepscot
Paper Co. for 49 years);
John and Elizabeth's son Michael J. Sherbak (born Sept. 29, 1914 in
Pejepscot, a small community near Lisbon Falls; was employed by
Portsmouth Naval Shipyard; died at his home in Exeter, N.H., on Oct.
23, 1963; survived by widow Alice Woodside, etc.);
John and Elizabeth's son John Paul Sherbak (born in Lisbon Falls,
July 19, 1910; he died in Nebraska);
I haven't found obit yet for Mrs. Anne Sherbak of Michigan who died
in April 1975, but I have her funeral service notice.
The obituaries I have all list survivors and where they were living
at the time of the deaths and who they were married to, etc.
My Karkos line may be related somewhere in the Sherbak line through
an in-law or two, but I'm still looking into that.
Came across them while researching Slovaks buried in Lisbon Falls'
two Slovak cemeteries in Maine. Have done extensive microfilm
searching and printing of Lewiston Evening Journal and Lewiston Sun
Journal back issues of Slovak obituaries.
I also have access to the Maine State Genealogical Archives in
Augusta, where I've read thousands of microfilm files on births,
deaths, marriages, etc., of Maine slovaks. I have notebooks filled
with data and have been in the process of computerizing everything
I've researched over past several years.
My job as a daily newspaper reporter/photographer (grin, for the
Lewiston Sun Journal), however, and getting married, has considerably
shortened my time available to do genealogy research.
Email me at pikagnome@...
and I'll email you what I have.
Will eventually post all the obituaries I've found and photos of the
grave stones, markers, etc., on my Karkos genealogy web site when I
have my 2-week vacation next month. Was supposed to go to Aspen for
the annual John Denver Memorial week events, but don't have the money
May be able to put you in contact with some of your relatives through
my Lisbon Falls contacts.
P.S. Have seen the name spelled Sherbak, Cerbak, and Scerbak.
