Surnames - North & South #hungary

Michele Sankar <sankosy@...>
 

Hello all.

Let me start with apologies to all of you who wrote with responses to an
earlier letter of mine, as I have been unable to answer them. I have
spent the past month in the hospital with my youngest baby, and she was
just discharged yesterday. The good news is finding all of the H-sig
letters here!

Surnames I am searching:

BECK (Somogy?)
FANY (Salgotarjan?)
FREUND (Baja?)
GLOCKNER/GABOR (throughout villages in Somogy county - Szulok,
Somogysard, etc.; then
Budapest)
SEIDNER (Salgotarjan, Budapest)
WEINBERGER (Baja, Budapest)
WINTER (Salgotarjan, Abauj-Szina/Sena/Kosice,
Budapest)

Many thanks.

Researching Isaac LEVI #hungary

Robin KAH <Eiko-1958@...>
 

Hello everyone!

I've also been lurking for a while, hoping to run across anyone who =
might be researching a LEVI connection to Hungary. I am hoping that =
some of the following names ring a bell with someone, or that someone =
might give suggestions on where else I might search.

Specifically, I am researching Isaac LEVI (the senior) who served in the =
American Revolutionary War under George Rogers Clark. According to =
testimony Isaac gave in his application for a Revolutionary War pension =
(Switzerland County, Indiana, 18 Sep 1832), Isaac was "born in Hungary =
on the _____ day of February 1749". I have no clues as to his =
parentage, but my speculation is that he came to this country either =
with family or to extended family members already residing here. I have =
not made a connection yet, but census records show that there was a =
Barnet LEVI in Franklin County, Indiana (1820), Salomon LEVY in Crawford =
County, Indiana (1820), and a Rhobert LEVI in Crawford County, Indiana =
(1830). [Spellings are exactly what is shown on the census records.]

According to Isaac's pension application testimony, he was "about =
Seventeen years old" when he came to America yet I have not been able to =
find him on any of the published immigrant ship lists in a time frame =
that matches. I believe I have located him in Virginia (George Rogers =
Clark's forces were connected with the Virginia Militia) where it =
appears he married a Judith HILL about 1793. I know there were other =
Levi (also spelled "Levy") in Virginia around that time, but I have made =
no connection there yet either. I also know he was, at various times, =
in Kentucky, Ohio, and Illinois. =20

Trying to track him through his wives doesn't help because Isaac was =
married a number of times and information on his wives, except for his =
last wife, is practically non-existent. Isaac ultimately settled in =
Indiana, with 3 sons - Abraham (also known as "Abram"), Isaac L. ("Isaac =
Jr."), and Martin, and 2 daughters - Mary ("Polly"), and Sallie. Isaac =
died in Ripley County on 21 Sep 1850. Eventually a government marker =
commemorating his Revolutionary War service was placed on what once was =
his farmstead, but the actual location of his grave is lost. His =
descendants live on in Indiana, particularly in Rush County and, for the =
most part, have no clue that he was Jewish. Isaac was briefly =
mentioned in an article written by Timothy J. Crumrin, "Early Jews in =
Indiana" and may be seen on-line at: =
http://www.connerprairie.org/injews.html . =20

Although none of Isaac's descendants appear to have been raised with any =
Jewish traditions, I was quite pleased to discover that he is my =
g-g-g-g-grandfather (I am descended through his daughter Mary/Polly who =
married John CLEVENGER). I worked closely with a number of =
"conservadox" Jewish people (although there was 1 reform fella in the =
bunch) and developed a great affection for Jewish people - the sense of =
humor, support of each other, and love for a their own very rich =
heritage. I learned much >from them, acquired quite a Yiddish =
vocabulary, attended the bar mitzvah of my employer's eldest son, and =
even joined the local Jewish Community Center (great athletic =
facilities!). At the time none of us knew about old Isaac. An =
interesting and amusing side note - my generation of Isaac's descendants =
are also of Japanese and American Indian descent. My Jewish employer, =
co-workers and I always had fun exploring the "tribal thing" present in =
our families. In fact, it brings new meanting to a great line in the =
movie "The Frisco Kid" with Gene Wilder - when Gene Wilder's character =
says (while teaching a folk dance to some Indians) "you better watch =
that lady - I think she's a Jewish Indian!" =20

Thank you for your patience with this long letter. All suggestions and =
tips are greatly appreciated!

Yours in friendship,

Hello,

My name is Sheila and I am a Newbie to Genealogical Research.
I will be researching the surnames:

CLUSKEY
FITZGERALD
AKENS
DAVIS


Anyone that is currently researching any of these names please
feel free to send me and the list an email. Also, any hints or tips
you would like to give me would be greatly appreciated.

I will be relying on the "net" a great deal as the cost of
petrol here in England is outrageous.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to joining the search
with all of you.

Cheers!
