I am looking for some sort of downstream record for Joseph Jensca, who appears in the 1920 census as a border in the house of Martin Markovick, 2912 E. 123rd Street, Cleveland.He is listed as being Slovak, age 51, and married.
I believe that this guy may be be a brother of my g-grandmother Anna Genozi.The name has morphed into numerous variants.I have seen Genscin, Gence, Gensey, and Gency; there are probably others. This guess depends on whether the G is pronounced in a soft manner e.g. giraffe).
My Joseph was born in 1869 in Also Mislye, near Kosice.I know very little else about him.He seems to have come to the US first in 1893, gotten married to a Susanna Gres in 1896 or 1897, and shows up in Philadelphia in 1900. He was not present in the 1904 Philadelphia directory, so he seems to have left by then; whether elsewhere in the US or back to Slovak Hungary I don't know. One thing that is interesting--the house next to him in the 1920 census includes the family name Kondus, which was in the same house that Joseph was in for the 1900 census in Philadelphia.
I realize that this may be a wild goose chase; but I am reduced to this.There is no family lore to go by, since my part of the family never knew Joseph existed.
