The Sclesky Home PageUpdated December 22, 2011
|This whole project started back in 1995 when I just wanted some answers.You see my little brother (I should say younger-he was 17 years old) was killed in 1992 and I just wanted to believe that Andy has family members looking over him.I never knew that digging back I would find so many family members.I guess I can say Andy has plenty of family with him.With all of this digging I now have over 34,000 names in my file.And along the way I have met so many nice people who are more than willing to share information.And to those people I would like to say thank you.|
Since I've been researching my trees I have found all sorts of new items.Such as my last name was actually SZULAUCKAS.Therefore, if you spell your last name the same way that I spell mine (Sclesky) we are somehow related.We just have to figure out how.
Most of my parent's families where raised in Cambria County, PA.Some of the relatives that I am working on would be Mary McKenzie who married Wilfred Ivory.Mary is the daughter of Andrew A. McKinzey (b. May 9, 1809 in Franklin County, PA) and Mary Magdalena Erehart (b. abt 1825).Andrew and Mary (Erehart) McKinzey are buried at St. Augustine's Cem., St. Augustine, PA.There are many different spellings for McKenzie and Erehart.Wilfred is the son of Catherine (Boland) and James Augustine Ivory.Together Wilfred and Mary had five children:Maye (m. Charles Woodburn), Melinda (m. Jerome Yeckley), Walter (died as a child), Savilla (m. Raymond Link) and Elwood (m. Stella Rudolph).Looking for any information on Wilfred and Mary's oldest child (Maye b. 1886 d.1913).Maye married Charles Woodburn.It is believed that they had three children - all girls.Catherine, Margaret and Delores.Catherine married Elias Lingafelt.Margaret married a Murry O'Shea (not sure of the spelling).From what we have found out Margaret's family lived in the area Pittsburgh, PA.If you know anything about this family please email me.
Wilfred remarried after the death of Mary (b.1863 d.March 27, 1897).He married Anna M. Noll (daughter of Christina (Willebrand) and Henry Noll).Together Wilfred and Anna had three children:Adrian (m. Gertrude Little), Ralph (m. Gertrude Crossman) and Harry (m. Elizabeth Conrad).
