All my NESGODAs show up as that spelling from about the first world war on to the present day.
There is a discrepancy in a story my mother tells me about William's association & employment by an older relative when William was a teenager.I have come to question whether Walter NESGODA of Dayton OH was infact an older cousin or Uncle instead of the older step/half brother my Mother tells me he was.Mother's scenario has Walter and Anthony as older half/step brothers and the following being all from a 'second family' of William's father?
Wiliam Connie Domonick Edward Raymond Martha(?) Laura Kanuit Agnes Neuman
My mother says her grandparents names *may* have been Joseph & Maryanna NESGODA.I love my Mom dearly but I am not convinced of that at all.
