Dear Phyllis, I did appreciate you taking the time to check my Fulop details. This has confirmed in my mind the question of who his father had been. Emericus/Imre FULOP...he was born 20 March 1868, at Szakonyfalu. Hungary. Imre's wife was MARIA KOVACS.
Imre Fulop and Maria Kovacs were Fererence Fulop's parents!
Imre was the brother ofmy grandfather MARTIN FULOP, my grandmother was born in Austria!
When years ago I checked the shipping register had noticed that on the same ship was a STEFAN KOVACS...he must have been a cousin of Ference Fulop.
Once again many thanks for your information, every little bit helps.I never realised that there was a German connection as well! kind regards, Sieglinde (nee Fulop)
