Its a strange story. All I know for sure is that my paternal grandfather took the name of his stepfather August Huwar after his father died (dont know the cuase of death). I recently found out that his "real" last name is Van (or Von)Stefanovich. My aunt was one of a few people who tried research the family history, something my granfather expressly forbid on many occassions. Now that he is passed away I want to try again. I have been trying to track down any of the Huwar's that I can find, but I also wanted to post here in case anyone has run into either name in their research.
