All I know is that they were married in Bucharest. I know they aren't German because Julia raised me until I was seven. I know that she & Vasa were from Romania. They came to the states in the early 1900's when the communists took over. They left Romania because they were freedom fighters who were found out. The communists stormed their home and killed four of their children. They brought their oldest son, John (Julia called him Yonny) with them. They left behind an infant daughter. Julia & Vasa saved for 16 years to go back and get their daughter but the communists somehow learned of this and killed the daughter.
I know that Becker is a German surname. But my great grandparents were not German. They 'americanized' their name when they came here.
I have checked the Ellis Island site and they are not listed under the name Becker. That is why I wondered if anyone would have some idea what Becker might have been changed from.
