I don't know if there is a relationship here but my Fathers name was Nicholas Russell Hark, I have been unable to trace back beyond that. He was born in 1917 but I have received several different stories as to who his parents were and how they died and even when they died. I do know that he was born in Pa. but am uncertain as to exactly where. I believe it was in Scanton but not posative
as his birth records were supposedly destroyed in a fire in the Harrisburg Court house.
I do know that he had a sister by the name of Veldora who lived somewhere between Philly and Allentown.
If any of this is familar please let me know.
