John Povich is/was my godfather. What information would you like? He was born in Jerome Arizona. He died at the Veteran Hospital in Orange New Jersey. He was a Democrat Councilman in Manville NJ. A plumber by trade. His mother was Victoria Regiec (correct spelling)
John E's father is buried in Jerome Arizona. Victoria is buried in Hillsborough, where all the Regiec's are buried as is my father and John E.
My father was Joseph Povich, he was John bother.

Would love to exchange info. Victoria Regiec-Povich, was my Grandfather-Michael Regiec's sister. I have her baptism papers and copy of her passport it was these two items that helped me to begin my family search in 1995. I would be so excited to see a picture of Victoria.

Hello Cynthia and Carol,
I just started my family tree (for my kids). I just got a really strange feeling when I read your post. I am Mary Alice Povich. My birth father was Joseph Povich. Victoria Regiec Povich was my grandmother. My mother lived with Victoria and Joe in Manville for a year or so......This may be strange to you now also....My mother was Estelle (from Newark) and she and Joseph were married in May 1945, divorced in 1947 (or 48) I would have to take a look at the divorce papers. I saw a headstone in the "find-a-grave" website that said his second wife was Stella. Would that be the same Joseph Povich? The dates seem accurate.
I hope I didn't give you a heart attack or anything since I don't know if you were aware of this . I am a little overwhelmed at finding this post myself!! I always wondered if I had any siblings (other than a step sister and one half sister that I grew up with). Maybe I have more siblings?
Not sure what else to say/ask.
Mary
PS I once wrote a note to Connie Chung asking if Morey Povich was related to me. She wrote me a really nice letter and referred me to Morey's father, Shirley Povich, who said they were Lithuanian Povich's, so probably not related, however according to DNA there is a little of European Jewish in my screening. less than 1% but it may be that the Catholic Povich's became Catholic in the Pogroms.
