I am looking for information about John Sovich and Anna Grucelak Sovich and their descendants. John Sovich was born as Joannes Sowicz in 1855 in Leluchow, Nowy Sacz, Poland, son of Joannes Sowicz and Maria Kolcun. Joannes was the widow of Maria Dragan. He married Anna Grucelak on Feb. 26, 1888. Anna Grucelak was born in Leluchow on Feb. 4, 1870, daughter of Petrus Grucelak and Lucia Romaniak. She had siblings named:
Stephanus Grucelak, b. Jan. 1, 1867, d. Oct. 23, 1921, Punxsutawney, PA;
Julianna Grucelak, b. Aug. 30, 1872, remained in Poland;
Joachimus Grucelak, b. Aug. 20, 1878, d. Feb. 28. 1880, Leluchow;
Demetrius Grucelak, b. Feb. 4, 1881, d. 1927, Homestead, PA;
Michaelus Grucelak, b. June 16, 1884, d. Sept. 12, 1952, Homestead, PA;
Maria Grucelak Haszczak, b. July 10, 1888, d. 1959, Homestead, PA.
My great-grandfather, Stephanus Grucelak, known later in life as "Stephen Pete Krucelyak" was Anna Grucelak Sovich's older brother. When my great-grandfather died in 1921, his sister, Anna Sovich, was living in New Jersey. The family thinks she may have lived in or near Passaic or Linden, NJ.
I have lots of information about the Grucelak and Krucelyak families to share with John and Anna Sovich's descendants and would very much like to learn about their branch of the family.
If anyone is related to, or knows of the John and Anna Sovich family from New Jersey, I'd sure appreciate hearing from you.
Many thanks for your assistance.
