My mother's maiden name was Rovnak (also spelled Rovynak or Rovnyak by Michael and his children) from my grandfather Paul Michael Rovnak. Paul moved to Rhode Island when he was stationed at Newport Navy Base, & met my grandmother Mary Hendricks then stayed in Rhode Island.

He was Slovakian decent his Parents my great grandparents were Michael born in 1877and Anna(Kvak) Rovnak born in 1883 immigrated from Petrovos, Zemplinska, Zupa Slovakia. Michael had 4 brothers and a 1 sister, George, Andrew, Albert, Paul and Sister Rose or Susan.
