- Jun 2, 2007Cindy;
My maternal grandfather was Ferdinand Victor Fabry, born 21 March 1881 in Trstena, Orava; Ferdinand was the son of Karol Fabry, who was born on 2 November 1853 in Trstena; Ferdinand's grandfather was Jozef Fabry who was born on 26 June 1814 in Trstena; Ferdinand's great-grandfather was Stefan Fabry, date and place of birth unknown, according to information received from a second cousin some years ago.
Ferdinand Victor Fabry married Kornelia Zahor, who was born circa 1868 to 1870 in Svaty Mikulas (Liptovsky Mikulas) after immigrating to Cleveland, OH.
BTW, somewhere a while back I found the following about the surname "Fabry" somewhere on the Internet:
"What does the fabry name mean?
Last Name: fabry
Slovak and Hungarian (Fábry): occupational name for a blacksmith or ironworker, from a derivative of Latin faber craftsman.
Southern French: variant of Fabre."
Roll Call - Looking for Fabery (sp?) and Cerva Posted by: "historytracker" historytracker@... historytracker Sat Jun 2, 2007 1:05 am (PST) My great grandparents were Emery and Mary Fabery (Maiden name
Baran). I believe the name is originally Fabry, but over the years I
have seen it with many different spellings. The earliest
documentation that I have for them is 1890 with their marriage
license. Also naturalization records for Emery indicated that he was
from Austria. My slovak roots are in Fayette County, PA and
Westmoreland, PA. Eventually they settled in Uniontown, PA and that
is where they are buried. I still cannot find any documentation that
indicates any villages or towns where they were born.
Anna Cerva is the sister of Emery and she spent most of her life in
Luzerne County, PA and then settled in Greensburg, PA. Currently I am
researching this family in hopes to find something indicating where
are they from.
