It is possible that Michael Uhrin is the brother of my great-grandfather, John Michael Ughrin/Uhrin (b. 5-22-1872 in Hrusov, Slovakia), who came to the U.S. as a small child (presumably thru Ellis Island) and settled in Nebraska. The parents were Andrew Uhrin and Mary Pramuk and aside from John and Michael, there were two sisters named Mary and Sophie. The only information that I have about Michael is that he settled in Wellfleet, Nebraska and had two sons, one whose name was 'Andy'. The sister Sophie married and lived in NJ; no info on Mary.

There may have been connections in NJ and Ohio as well because my great-grandfather was married in Passaic, NJ and moved with his wife (Susanna Rejda; born 3-15-1882 in Jakubianoch, Ruthinia, immigrated to U.S. when 5-6 years old) to Cleveland, Ohio.

If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know. Thanks and goodluck.

Hi Yvonne,

My grandmother, Mary Ughrin (Wghrin) was born in Wellfleet, Nebraska. Her father was Michael, her mother Mary. My grandmother married a man named Williams, moved to Michigan, had a child Elizabeth, divorced and subsequently married my grandfather Floyd Ellison, with whom she had 4 children. My mother has information about her mother's immediate family, but it starts with the Nebraska family and doesn't go back to the roots in Europe. I would love to share information.
