Thank you very much for your reply. I am going to keep the information you sent me in my files for future reference; we may get lucky and one day make a connection. It was very interesting!
My great-grandmother's name is Mary (Maria) LENKO. She was born March 15, 1876, and claimed to be from Vienna, Austria. The 1910 Census says she & her parents were born in Austria and she was Slovak. I know very little of Slovakian presence in Austria. It also says she immigrated in 1907 with her brother Andrew, but I cannot find her on Ellis Island records. They must have spelled the name wrong.
After being in America, she married John GULA, who I believe was also born in Austria & was Slovak.
Do you know anything of the history of the LENKO family? I'd love to hear anything you can share.
