17201Re: Roll Call - Looking for Fabery (sp?) and Cerva
- Jun 2, 2007Cindy,
You will find there are "Fabry" surnames in Spis county in
Eastern Slovakia. One village I'm aware of is Olsavka. Not sure
if it goes by the same name now or not. This would be in the area
of Zsegra, Dubrava, NW of Kosice. I know of an Anna Fabry, born 1903,
who married a Joannes (John) Czmorej Jan 17, 1921. Her parents were
Paulus Fabry and Mara Brindza. I'm aware of the connection because I
do research on the "Czmorej" surname. I'm also aware that they moved
to Cleveland, OH for a while but returned to Slovakia about the time
of the Depression in the US.
