My gr-grandfather was John Kalich (could have been spelled Kalish at one time too). Don't know where he was from, only have his name on my gr-mother's marriage license. According to that paper, he married a Julia Curtis. He was from the Old Country, perhaps Hungary or Yugoslavia--no clue. They did live for a time in the coal mining town of VanMeter, Pa. Perhaps it's the same person--maybe not. Hope I helped you. He was probably born around 1870-1880 as my grandmother was born in 1899.
