I'm searching or information on the Zick family that lived in Akron, OH and Cleveland, OH. My maternal grandfather was Harry (middle name possibly Joseph or John?) Zick, b. about 1900 and died 1978. We think that he was born in Poland; his parents emigrated from Poland and lived in Akron, OH. Zick is likely a shortened version of their Polish surname, but we don't know what is was.
Harry had two brothers, Edward Zick and Paul Zick. Edward disappeared around 1925 and was never heard from again by the family. Paul is said to have been in the Navy and maybe deserted, and was a barber on the west side of Cleveland. Harry's mother seems to have later remarried a man named Helinski. If anyone any as any information on this family, such as Harry's parents or relatives, or leads on where Edward may have resettled, I'd love to hear from you. I have information on Harry's descendents to share.
