Descendants of Michael Scerbak (born c1795) & Helena Murczko (born c1800), Udol, Slovakia, Part 2

Today, we’ll look at the great grandchildren of Michael Scerbak and Helena Murczko of Udol, Slovakia. although many grandchildren were born to Michael’s and Helena’s children, only nine of them survived to adulthood.

Generation 3

Here are the nine surviving grandchildren. All vital events were in Udol, Slovakia unless otherwise noted:

1. Maria Scerbak, daughter of Michael Scerbak and Maria Fecsisin,  was baptized 12 June 1845; died 05 February 1892.  She married (1) Michael Vansco, son of Michael Vansco and Maria Knap, 22 November 1868.  He was born c1845; died 08 December 1881.  She married (2) John Glucs, 16 May 1886.  He was born c1846.

Children of Maria Scerbak and Michael Vansco:       

i.   Maria Vansco, born 31 August 1869; died 13 October 1869
ii.   Michael Vansco, born 14 October 1870; died 13 August 1871
iii.  Nicholas Vansco, born 14 September 1872; died 4 February 1881
iv.   Maria Vansco, born 25 October 1875; no further record

Child of Maria Scerbak and John Glucs is:

i.    John Glucs, born 30 April 1888; no further record

Maria (Scerbak) (Vancso) Glucs had a lot of heartache in her life, burying one husband and at least four young children. No further record has been found for her daughter Maria Vancso or her son, John Glucs, so it is possible that she has descendants.

2. Anna Scerbak, daughter of Michael Scerbak and Maria Fecsisin, was baptized 20 December 1852; died 22 April 1914.  She married Michael Hnat alias Danyko, 22 November 1868. He was born c1845 in Maly Lipnik, Slovakia; died 11 July 1915.

Children of Anna Scerbak and Michael Hnat are:

i.    Anna Hnat, born 07 February 1870; died 28 June 1931 in Alpha, Warren, New Jersey; married Michael Holodnak, 3 November 1891, Shamokin, Northumberland, Pennsylvania.   They were the parents of nine children.
ii.    Maria Hnat, born 12 September 1873 ; married Paul Szadloch, 13 February 1911.
iii.    Michael Hnat, born 18 January 1877; died 30 November 1878.
iv.    Michael Hnat, born 16 September 1879; married Susan Hryniak, c1907
v.    John Hnat, born 28 October 1883; died 02 December 1884.
vi.    Stephen Hnat, born 28 November 1885; died 1 January 1952 in Paterson, Passaic, New Jersey; married Susannah Havran, 25 July 1908, Passaic, Passaic, New Jersey. They were the parents of four children.

ix.  Peter Hnat, born 02 June 1892; no further record
x.  Nicholas Hnat, born 08 April 1898; no further record

There are quite a few descendants of Michael Hnat and Anna Scerbak through daughter Anna and son Stephen with more possible descendants through daughter Maria and son Michael.

3. Maria Hrinya, daughter of Michael Hrinya and Maria Scerbak, was baptized 1 September 1850; married Michael Fengya, 26 January 1874.

Children of Michael Fengya and Maria Hrinya:

i.  George Fengya, born c1872; married Helen Petrisin, born 3 August 1879, daughter of John & Anna Leskoszifa, 21 February 1897. They were the parents of seven children.
ii.  Maria Fengya, born 11 August 1874; married Michael Mikulik alias Kacsmar, born c1863, widower, 25 October 1896. they were the parents of four children, all of whom died in infancy.
iii.  Anna, born 4 January 1877; died 5 May 1877, aged 4 months
iv.  Michael Fengya, born 16 February 1878; died 9 December 1880, aged 3 years
v.  John Fengya, born 24 April 1880; died 7 January 1881, aged ¾ year
vi.  Anna Fengya, born 1 January 1882; died 1 January 1893, aged 10 years
vii. Michael Fengya, born 20 July 1884; died 5 August 1898, aged 14 years
viii. John Fengya, born 6 December 1886; died 3 April 1891, aged 5 years
ix.  Stephen Fengya, born 20 May 1889; died 6 July 1889, aged 2 months

The high mortality rate in the village is very evident in the family of Michael Fengya and Maria Hrinya. Only two of their children survived childhood and one of those two children buried all four of their own children in infancy.

Michael Fengya and Maria Hrinya may have descendants through their son, George, who married Helen Petrisin.

4. Susanna Hrinya, born 14 August 1856, daughter of Michael Hrinya and Maria Scerbak; died after 1893; married Nicholas Hrinya, 9 February 1880. He was born 19 October 1857; died after 1893.

Children of Nicholas Hrinya and Susanna Hrinya:

  1. John, born 29 May 1882; died 31 August, buried 2 September 1883, aged 1 year, 3 months
  2. Nicholas, born 27 November 1884; died 18 July 1963, Clifton, Passaic, New Jersey; married Helena (aka Julia) Drabisin, 1907, in New Jersey. The family spelled their surname as Hreno. Julia was born 25 January 1890; died 2 May 1981, Passaic, Passaic, New Jersey. They were the parents of seven children.
  3. Maria, born 30 October 1887. There is a 17 year old Maria Hrinya from Udol, likely this Maria, arriving in New York on 26 August 1904 with three other Udol girls. She was going to Passaic, New Jersey to Stephen Sklepko’s home (who was her uncle). She may well be the Mary Hrinya who married Michael Kundrat, 1914, in New Jersey.
  4. Michael, born 29 November 1893; died 12 August 1954, Youngstown, Mahoning, Ohio; married Anna Patoray, 1916, New Jersey. They were the parents of five children, all born in Ohio. Anna was born 1898; died 1940.

Nicholas and Susanna Hrinya have descendants through at least two of their children and possibly three if Maria married Michael Kundrat.

5. John Hrinya, born 9 July 1861, son of Michael Hrinya and Maria Scerbak married Maria Hrinya (10 November 1866; died after 1904) on 15 February 1886.

Children of John Hrinya and Maria Hrinya:

  1. Maria, born 29 November 1886. She may be the 18 year old Maria Hrinia who traveled to New York in 1904 with the 17 year old Maria Hrinya, above.
  2. John, born 3 October 1889
  3. Michael, born 15 June 1892; died 24 February 1893, aged 8 months
  4. Anna, born 13 April 1894
  5. Helen, born 4 July 1897; died 13 March 1898, aged 9 months
  6. Michael, born 14 June 1899; died 16 August 1900, aged 1 year, 2 months
  7. Michael, born 31 December 1904

6. Helena Hrinya (c1869-26 July 1923, in New Jersey), daughter of Nicholas Hrinya & Maria Patorai married Stephen Szklepko(19 April 1863-29 May 1925), son of Peter Szklepko & Maria Havran, on 30 January 1888. In 1900, Julia reported having given birth to 7 children, with 3 surviving. In 1910, Helen (aka Julia) reported giving birth to 11 children, with six surviving. The eldest child at home was Anna, born 1893, in New Jersey. No baptisms or burials are recorded in Udol for their children.

In the 1905 New Jersey census, Stephen reported that he had been in the U.S. for 18 years and was naturalized. If he had been in the country for 18 years, than he and Helen came as newlyweds.

Children of Stephen Szklepko and Helena Hrinya:

i. Julia, born May 1888; New Jersey; died after 1900 when she was at home in Passaic, New Jersey
ii. Michael Sklepko, born August 1889; died 10 March 1891, Passaic, Passaic, New Jersey [Parents not named on death certificate, but likely belongs in this family.]
iii. Anna Szklepko
, born November 1892, New Jersey; died 22 December 1967; married Nils Wallin, 1915. They were the parents of at least two children.
iv. Peter Szklepko, born 1898; New Jersey; died 1911, Passaic, Passaic, New Jersey

vi. Paul Szklepko, born 1 October 1907; died 14 November 1967; married Mary Dolack. They were the parents of at least two children.

Stephen and Helen (Hrinya) Szklepko have descendants today.

7. John Scerbak  was born 18 July 1862, the son of John Scerbak and Maria Patorai and died 22 February 1938 in Garfield, Bergen, New Jersey.  He married Catherine Dzuriczki, c1886, probably in Pennsylvania.  She was born 9 March 1865, Spissky Hrhov, Slovakia, and died 1949 in New Jersey.

Here ends the sketches of the great grandchildren of Michael Scerbak and Helena Murczko. This was a lot of work, given that this family made multiple trips across the ocean from Udol to New Jersey, Pennsylvnia and Ohio. Multiple cousins with the same names who were also close in age added to the headaches.

The family groups certainly make it plain that the childhood mortality rate was extremely high, but those who lived to adulthood left the couple many descendants.

Descendants of Michael Scerbak (born c1795) & Helena Murczko (born c1800), Udol, Slovakia, Part 1

I am still in the process of cleaning up my RootsMagic database and realized that I’ve never shared the earliest generations of the Scerbak family of Udol, Slovakia.

My paternal grandmother, Nana, was Helena Scerbak (1893-1985), the eldest daughter of Michael Scerbak and Anna Murczko.

The earliest ancestor in the Scerbak line is Michael Scerbak who married Helena Murczko. I’ve estimated that they were born about 1795 and 1798, respectively, given that their oldes known child, Michael was born about 1820.

Right off the bat, I need to address the baptismal name of this man. Every other online source I’ve viewed names him as “Mikulas, ” but that is a mistake, based on the priest’s entry, in scribbly cursive, that names him “Mich” in the marriage record of his son.

I wrote a post last year sharing images of the priest’s handwriting, other samples of “Mich” and “Michael” and the clearly different cursive K that the priest wrote.

There is not a single doubt in my mind that this man was named Michael!

No burial records have been found for either Michael or his wife, Helena. Both Michael and Helena were alive on 6 June 1843, when their youngest child was baptized. The priest would have noted if either were deceased.

Neither Michael nor Helena are found in the 1869 census, so they probably died before that time.

Michael Scerbak (c1795-1842+) married  Helena Murczko (c1798-1843+), c1818, probably in Udol, Slovakia.

Extant church records indicate that the Scerbaks lived in Udol and the Murczkos lived about one mile away in Hajtovka. Both villages attended the Greek Catholic church in Udol. Therefore, it is likely that Michael was born in Udol, while Helena was born in Hajtovka.

Michael and Helena were the parents of at least four children and possibly several more. With church records beginning in 1827 and the gap in birth years between Michael and Helena, there is enough time for Helena to have given birth to as many as five other children.

No further clues have been found as to possible children, but the mortality rate was extremely high for infants as well as everyone else, so it’s possible that none of these unknown possible children survived childhood.

Based on my abstractions of Udol church records, I also believe that the priest or his scribe omitted a number of burials, in particular, through the years. Errors were also found in baptismal names and given names of brides.

Unless noted otherwise, all life events took place in Udol, Slovakia.

Children of Michael Scerbak and Helena Murczko:

  1. Michael (Misko), born c1820; died 27 August 1878; married Maria Fecsisin, 7 January 1842.
  2. Maria, born c1827; died 15 April 1877; married Michael Hrinya, 24 October 1848.
  3. Anna, baptized 11 July 1833; no further record
  4. John, baptized 19 November 1836; died 22 February 1916; married Maria Patorai, 11 February 1861
  5. Helena, baptized 6 June 1843; no further record

Therefore, of these five children, only Michael, Maria and John have known descendants.

Generation 2

1. MICHAEL Scerbak was born c1820, and died 27 August 1878.  He married Maria Feccisin, daughter of Peter Fecsisin and Maria Hnat, on 7 January 1842.  She was born c1822, and died 7 April 1890.

They were the parents of three children, but only Maria and Anna appear to have survived to adulthood. It is possible that John also survived, but married and then lived in another village:

1. John, baptized 27 February 1843; no further record. He is not in the 1869 census of Udol.
2. Maria, baptized 12 June 1845; died 5 February 1892; married Michael Vancso, 22 November 1868. He was born c1845; died 8 December 1881.
3. Anna, baptized 20 December 1852; died 22 April 1914; married Michael Hnat, 22 November 1868. He was born c1839 in Maly Lipnik; died 11 July 1915. [Five couples were married on 22 November 1868, including sisters Maria and Anna Scerbak.

2. MARIA Scerbak, born c1829; died 15 April 1877, aged 48 years; married Michael Hrinya, 24 October 1848. He was born c1825 and died 18 November 1887. Michael, 50, widower, married Helen Kundrat, widow, born Hnat, of Ujak 72, 4 March 1880. Helen, widow of Michael, born Hnat, died 7 November, buried 9 November 1897, aged 70 years.

They were the parents of nine children:

  1. Maria, baptized 1 September 1850; married Michael Fengya, baptized 30 September 1851, son of John Fengya/Ilyasa & Maria Fecsisin, 26 January 1874
  2. Michael, born c1852; buried 10 May 1854, aged 2 years
  3. Anna, baptized 29 January 1854; no further record.
  4. Susanna, baptized 17 August 1856; married Nicholas Hrinya, baptized 25 October 1857, son of Elias Hrinya & Anna Fedorko, 9 February 1880
  5. John Michael, baptized 29 December 1858; died 7 March, buried 9 March 1859, aged 4 months
  6. John, baptized 14 July 1861; married Maria Hrinya, baptized 11 November 1866, daughter of Peter Hrinya alias Bacso & Helen Miklus, 15 February 1886
  7. Peter, baptized 9 March 1864; no further record
  8. Helena, born c1869; married Stephen Szklepko, baptized23 March 1873, son of Peter Szklepko & Maria Havran, 30 January 1888
  9. Stephen, born 9 March 1873; died 17 December, buried 19 December 1878, aged 5 years

4. JOHN Scerbak,  baptized 19 November 1836; died 22 February 1916; married Maria Patorai , daughter of John Patorai and Anna Szurgent, 11 February 1861.  She was born 5 March 1839; died 27 January 1912.

They were the parents of eight children, but only John, Michael and Anna survived to adulthood:

1. John, born 18 July 1862; died 28 February 1938, Garfield, Bergen, New Jersey; married Catherine Dzuriczki, c1886, possibly in Pennsylvania. She was born 9 March 1865, Spissky Hrhov, Slovakia; died 1949 in New Jersey. They were the parents of six children.
2. Maria, born 17 April 1865; died 01 April 1872.
3. Michael, born 17 February 1868; died 16 March 1932; married Anna Murczko, 22 October 1892, Passaic, Passaic, New Jersey.  She was born 23 May 1872; died 28 June 1967. This family lived in Passaic in the 1890s, but returned permanently to Udol before 1898.
4. Anna, born 11 June 1870; died 22 December 1955; married Michael Zavaczki, 16 July 1894. He was born c1855; died 1 January 1933.
5. Stephen, born 03 January 1875; died 2 November 1876
6. Susanna, born 28 June 1878; died 11 January 1879.
7. Maria, born 19 September 1881; died 28 December 1882.
8. Stephen, born 10 December 1883; died 1 April 1884.

Michael Scerbak and Helena Murczko had nine grandchildren who lived to adulthood and gave them more descendants. However, they didn’t live to see the day when some of those grandchildren and many of their great grandchildren left the village for a new life in America.

The next post will take a look at those great grandchildren.

 

 

 

Scserbak 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.
