Surname/Dates/Location Our Research Interests

McClanahan

1850-1950

Shelby,
Shelby, Alabama,
USA

Looking for information regarding the parents of Ernest Tyson McClanahan (1889–1978). Ernest was born 04 FEB 1889 in Shelby, Shelby, Alabama, USA, and died 18 DEC 1978 in Tomahawk, Lincoln, Wisconsin, USA. He was married to Genevieve Brekke (1895-1973). They had three children: Ernest Eugene McClanahan (1921–1921), Roland Malcolm McClanahan (1925–2005), Russell Emmett McClanahan (1929–1981).

Karkos, Pelcarsky

1877-1940
Durham,
Androscoggin, Maine, USA
We suspect Mary Pelcarsky (1875-1936) and Anna Pelcarsky Karkos (1877-1940) are sisters. First, Mary Pelcarsky (1875-1936) was married to John Elsik (1866-1941). Second, Annie M. Elcik (1905) married George F. Karkos in 1925. If they are sisters, this is the second relationship between Elcik and Karkos families. Looking for additional details.

Elsik

1866-1941
Durham,
Androscoggin, Maine, USA
We have evidence that John Elsik (1866-1941) and Joseph Elsik (1871-1938) were brothers. Both immigrated from Austria. John immigrated in 1891 at the age of 23 and Joseph in 1901 at the age of 30. Both settled in Durham, Androscoggin, Maine. Both men used the same given names for their three daughters, a custom popular at the time. Baptismal records identify another brother (George) and a sister (Anna) for whom we seek additional information.

Elcik, Ilcik

1800-Today
Lisbon Falls, Androscoggin, Maine, USA
We have a DNA relationship linking John Elsik (1866-1942) married to Mary Pelcarsky and John Ilcik (1886-1982) married to Mary Jeho Zena Jonek. We are seeking information on ancestors in Parchovany, Slovakia, that can provide more information. The surnames according to baptismal records would be “Ilycsik or Ilcsik.”

Baron

1867-1900
Lisbon Falls, Androscoggin, Maine, USA
There is a social security document referencing John P. Elcik (born 28 NOV 1867), spouse Elizabeth Baron, and their son John P. Elcik. Does anyone have additional details? Who is Elizabeth Baron? Is this the correct birthdate? I believe these are my paternal Great-Great-Grandparents. Any information is welcome.

1875-1936
Lisbon Falls, Androscoggin, Maine, USA
Mary Pelcarsky (1875-1936) was married to John Elsik (1866-1941). John immigrated to America in 1891, and Mary immigrated in 1896. Does anyone have additional information on Mary Pelcarsky or her family?

Jonek

1887-1951
Lisbon Falls, Androscoggin, Maine, USA
