Children of Janos Veres and Maria Visnyinsky/Visnyiczky - Part One

Joseph Veres was born in Hungary in 1871 and married Catherine/Katalin Toth in about 1895. He immigrated to the United States aboard the Georgia in 1896. He was followed by his wife and one-year-old daughter Elizabeth about one year later. They all may have gone briefly to Johnstown, PA, but were living in Toledo, OH, by 1898.

Daughter Mary was born in Toledo in 1898, and son Andrew in 1900. Joseph worked there as a molder.

On July 4, 1906, Joseph died of heart failure. He is buried in Calvary Cemetery.

Anna Veres was born around 1878. She left her home in Janok, Hungary, and traveled on the S.S. Werkendam -- arriving in June, 1898. She resided in the home of her brother Joseph for about a year. Her whereabouts are unknown after that.

Maria Veres (the third daughter with this name) was born on August 27, 1876, in Janok, Hungary. She immigrated to the U.S. some time in the late 1890s and lived in the home of her brother Joseph. She married John Borosky around 1899.

Their daughter Teresa was born in Detroit in April of 1900 and she died at about age 9. They also had a daughter named Margit who was born in Toledo in September 1901, who died as an infant. Other children that were also born in Toledo include: John (1903), Alexander (1905), Edward/Imre (1907), and Jolan "Lola" (1910).

Some time after John Sr. died in March of 1917, Maria and the children moved to Johnstown, PA, where she married Albert Urban. She died there on December 27, 1948, of Transitional Cell Carcinoma of the Urinary Bladder and is buried in St. Therese Cemetery.

What a fabulous wedding photo! Welcome to the GeneaBlogging community. It's nice to see a blog about Hungary....not that I have any ancestors from there...but it makes a change from the usual suspects of Ireland, England and Scotland. What is it like conducting research in Hungary?

Welcome to GeneaBloggers! I'm interested to read more. While I have no Hungarian roots myself, my husband's paternal grandparents and great-grandparents immigrated from Hungary. The area they were from is actually now part of Romania. Have you found that some of your Hungarian lines are affected by changes in the map over time?
