Classification: Immigration
Surnames: Lenko, Daniel Ivanovich
Lenko, is my father's last name. His christian name is Daniel & Ivanovich is his patronomic. he was born Apr 28 or 29, 1897 in village of Verniaky, Ternopilska oblast. Western Ukraine(then Poland)in 1920, married my mother, Maria Repeta, born Aug, 1903 in village of Chernihivczi, Ternopilska oblast Western Ukraine(then Poland).In 1926 my father went to the USA to work. He settled for a while in Connellesville, PA where both his older sisters, Olga and Mary settled prior to my father's arrival. He worked in NYC, Chicago and in Cleveland where he had a relative, Steve Lenko who later owned a tavern in this city. Originally I went on this site, because I was looking for myfather's younger brother Hrits, who went to war(presumably WW1) in
Western Ukraine and never returned. The military of the time did not have information as to his disappearance, presuming that he died in action. I have no other info on this brother, except that his disappearance caused much grief for the family. Back to my father, Daniel, he returned to his home village in l931 to my mother and in
l935 they, with my siblings and me, sailed on the SS Kostuishko to Canada. We lived in Montreal for 1 year, then settled on a small farm
in Quebec, Ste. Sophie till 1939 and moved back to Montreal for another 10 years and in 1949 moved to Toronto. There is a lot more to this story, but will end here. If anyone is related to us, would appreciate hearing from you. I never heard anyone by Gula Lenko, but none in my
family who is now alive can enlighten me as to Gula. But who knows,
we may be connected somehow. Olga Lenko Aplin
