      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.

      Thank you.
