Yep -- I saw that one. Yes, I do think that they are half brothers (I have
no idea how the half brother thing came about). The Jan Pavuk in 1912 may
have been known to me as Johnny Pavuk who lived on a farm near Mutual PA.
There were actually more Pavuks than I imagined there would be, which has
given me reason to believe that the ones who came before him may have
written letters to encourage immigration.
And then there is the Katerin Sestak who came to the USA in the early
19-teens as a single woman and then may have left and returned from London
two years later as a married woman! While this isn't grandma, I'd love to
hear that story!
Oh what I would ask them if God would just give me 5 minutes with them!
