Drabisin Family of Udol, Slovakia & America

This family is part of my one-place study of St. Dimitry’s Greek Catholic (today Byzantine Catholic) Church parish, serving Udol and Hajtovka, Slovakia, covering the years 1827-about 1920. I will be sharing family records, roughly once a week, until all families in the parish are posted. Be aware that ages at marriage and death frequently don’t match baptismal records, when found. If you have ancestors who lived in these two villages and would like to receive an invitation to a shared Dropbox folder, please leave a comment and I will contact you.

DRABISIN

 Drabisin, Anna, sponsors in Ujak, GC
Child:

  1. Anna, bp 10 February 1828

Drabisin, Anna, Ujak, born c1830, buried 20 October 1836, aged 30 years

Drabisin, Anna, daughter of Michael, Ujak, buried 14 January 1835, aged 1 year

Drabisin, Basil (c1815-22 January 1872), son of Peter Drabisin & Maria Milpajka & (1) Helena Gibasz alias Palkojanka (c1832-1869+) married 20 February 1851 in Starina, Ujak 15, 18, 23 & 24, GC, GC

Helen is called Helen Palko/Janka in the baptismal records of her children, beginning in 1851. Helen’s mother was Anna Palko, so that might be the origin of Palko instead of Gibasz, which is in her marriage record. There is no evidence that Basil married a second wife before his first child was born. Basil died 22 January, buried 24 January 1872, aged 57 years. Helen, widow of Basil, born Lukacs, Ujak 23, died 30 December 1884, buried 1 January 1885, aged 58 years. Helen was from Starina and it is likely someone got her maiden name wrong. Otherwise, she seems to have three maiden names!
