Vicki, Did any of your grandfather Emil's relatives live in Vermont in the late 1800s, early 1900s? My relatives lived in Albany VT and Morrisville VT during this period. My grandparent Vilas Govro, and his brother Varney Govro, owned and operated farms there.
Was your grandparent's background French and Catholic? I have always assumed that mine was but have no documented information.
