I am looking for any relatives of Anna Farko and Alex Marcus/Markus, my mothers fathers parents.

Anna was born to Louis and Mary Borgos Farko in Toboscopar, Hungary, where she lived until she was 18, in 1913. At which time she came to Toledo, Ohio to live with her uncle Gyrgyo "George" Farko. She traveled via Austria on the Pannonia entering at the Port of Ellis Island.

She married Alescandru Martusch, name changed to Alex or Alec Marcus upon coming to America. They lived in Cleveland, Ohio, Cuyahoga county until their deaths. Alex died in 1925. She married again to Nicholas Kapanosh but tragically, she died in 1928, leaving her four children with Alex without parents.

The eldest son of these four children changed the family name to Markus.

If anyone can help me with this family, please write.

Dear Fawn:

Hi! Wow, I a very excited to hear from anyone with the name Farko! Thank you for writing.

To the best of my knowledge Anna came to America from her parents home as a single woman and was a Farko until her marriage to Marcus, Alecsandru or Alex in Toledo, Ohio. Her uncle Georgio, however, may have been married, he is a Farko, too. But I think he traveled single, as well. I believe I found him in the Ellis Island records, but have not investigated him very much at all.

I am sorry. We should keep in touch, though. May there is something between us afterall!

Most Sincerely yours,

Barb

I totally agree, the surname "Farko" is so rare and hard to find anyone with that name, that we are probably related somewhere along the family tree. I am looking forward to talking to you again. you can email me at any time at tfarko@yahoo.com
