Re: Petko in PA
I am Michael Petrash, son of Frank Petrash and grandson of Frank Petrash of Coaldale, PA. I am one of Frank Petrash's Jr. four children - three of whom still reside in PA. My sister Marian is a resident of OR. My parents, Frank and Martha, passed away in 2009 and 2010, respectively. I did not know my grandparents (Frank Petrash and Susan Petko) because they died at relatively young ages.
I was researching the Petko genealogy in response to a phone call I received from John Latzo of PA who believes the Latzo/Petrash families share an intersecting genealogy.My grandmother Susan Petko was born in Ovid, NY and later moved to Coaldale, PA.She had two sisters Anna Trimmel and Mary Moravek who according to John were included in the 1930 Coaldale, PA census.
John is looking for information on Susan Petko's mother, he thinks she was born a Latzo. Can anyone confirm this?
