Re: [S-R] finding my Gombar relatives
Anna Halkowicz was my great grandmother and I'm not sure where she
came from in Czechoslovakia. She married Michael A. Gombar somewhere
in Pennsylvania. The story goes that my grandfather was working in
the coal mines and asked his friend if he knew anyone back home he
could marry. They sent for Anna--so I don't know if the friend was
from the same town as my gr-grandfather--Zemplinska like family lore
has it or just probably the county of Zemplin. A newspaper article
of their 50th wedding anniversary says they lived in Mt. Carmel Pa
before moving to Connecticut. I found a baptism record of their
first child in Mt. Carmel PA but no marriage info. Her name was
spelled Halkowicz on the baptism paper for her son. On her death
certificate her father is listed as John Halkovic and mother Anna
Ryzak of unknown Czechoslovakia. She was born March 28, 1867 in
Czechoslovakia and died April 2, 1941 in Bridgeport CT.
