These are my great-grandparents, neither of whome I met. She died in 1960, I have every reason to believe he died before her. He was her second husband, the first being Stephen Horwath of Scranton PA. My grandma was born in New York, but I am not sure if the move occurred before or after Mary's remarriage.
Even though my grandma was a Zombeck, she always went by the name Horwath. There was some controversy about her father "leaving a marriage". Does this mean he left a first wife to marry Mary? Or did he divorce Mary? I would be thrilled to hear from any Zombecks out there who know this Joseph.
