      Matt,

      Henry Petrash is my grandfather and Margaret Petrash is my aunt and
      Godmother. Henry's first wife, Johanna, died in 1919. They had 6
      children together (1 died as an infant). Henry then married Annie
      Sustr on 17 June 1919 in Hallettsville, TX. They had 5 children (2
      of which died as infants and the remaining three are still living --
      one is my mother). I am fairly new to this group. I have a .pdf
      file I can upload if someone can give me some direction on how to get
      it on the list (or I can email it to you direct). I hope this helps.
