Don't know if above is a reference to my surname, or to that of
subscriber who posted this query ?
My first parental surname and male maternal surname bearer
arrived in US (together) in 1896 via Antwerp, Belgium and both
returned to Upper-Hungary (then Slovakia) by 1900.
My own parental GPs arrive in 1900.
Many parental surname bearers came later to US and but most returned
to Upper-Hungary, except those that emigrated to Canada.
