I am in Milwaukee, WI. I'll try and find out more from my father. We started chatting about this becuase his father and grandfather both worked in coal mines in Pennsylvania. I found that facsinating that they were in the states for a period of time in the early 1900's. Maria would have be my grandmother. There is a connection to St. Louis as some of them moved there. So, you maybe correct as far as the cousin scenario. I'll find out more.
