I've spent 20 years looking for this man. I even wrote to many relatives but no one replied-not even one response. This man was my true grandfather yet his name remained a secret until my grandmother's last days-then again we don't even have a correct spelling for him. He's gone, she's gone and my father is gone so what is the problem? There were too many people that were afraid to speak. We heard that they left Pa. went to Ohio but my grandmother obviously returned as she gave birth to my dad in Pa. on 5/16/30. His baptism papers were altered but i can see that a Goss family were his sponsors, his birth certificate was a mess! It wasn't "legally" filed until 1956-what a shame! To end, John P. Moros is not our grandfather-he was my dad's stepfather and a cruel one indeed! It's unfortunate that we have to carry his disgusting surname!

Hi,

I took the following data: Elizabeth Pigza, Census 1930 in Monaca. to look for any Louis, born betw 1908 and 1912.
I found a Louis Cattivera , a Louis Stall and a Louis Yavornick.

Regards,

Thomas

Thank you. You're very kind but we believe Louis was an older man and deserted her during her pregnancy. The main issue is his surname and after much help from many kind people we still can't locate his family. The original info is Louis Emmanuelis? His first name in Greek is Elias however there are others as well as for his surname. I've been connected to Ellis, Nellas, Tsalamidas, Tsalamatas and many more. There's a photo from July 1938 Pennsylvania diaspora-it's shows a Greek coffee shop and the my dad resembles the owner in the photo minus the hair. :-) After too many years of searching i'm about to throw in the towel. It's sad and disappointing not to have closure knowing that my true grandfather and family wanted nothing to do with us. Thank you again for your help. :-)
