Hi,

I'm related to the Mearnic's from Cambria County, PA. I'm looking for other people of the same line.

My great-grandmother is Margaret Mearnic who married John Tutko. Margaret Mearnic was born 20 jun 1879 and died 1 jul 1958. She married John Tutko in Connellsville, PA.

Ryan -

I believe I may be from the same line, but I have very little information, so I'll give what I can.

My great-grandfather is John Mearnic, who was born on March 22, 1899. By 1918 he had married Marcella Fuller and they were living in Gallitzin, PA. John died in 1956.

I hope that helps you some.

Hi,

This has to be a relative. I will have to add him to my tree. There were 7 siblings from this family in all. There could have been more but died at birth.

They are Margaret b. 1879, Steve b. 1889, Joseph b. 1896, George b. 1902, Julius, Michael, and John.

Can you give me a death date so I can look up an obituary and be sure?

I don't have an exact death date; all I know is that he died in 1956, and I'm almost certain he died in Michigan. John has children that are still alive, so I'll pay a visit to one of them in the next few days and ask for more information.

Ok, that would explain why I never found his obituary when looking.

Why did he go to Michigan?

I paid a visit to my grandmother - one of John's daughters - today, and this is what she told me:
He was born on 26 Mar 1899 (not on 22 Mar 1899 like I had originally thought) in Collinsville, PA. His father was Joseph, but she doesn't recall his mother's name. John had six siblings - Margaret, Steve, Joseph, Michael, George, and Julius.

He married Margaret Marcella Fuller in September 1917, and they had seven children:
George William (b. 11 Jul 1919, Gallitzin, PA)
Julia Cecilia (b. 28 Feb 1922, Gallitzin, PA)
Mary Edith (b. 8 Nov 1924, Buckhorn, PA)
Betty Jane (b. 31 Jul 1926, Gallitzin, PA)
Dorothy June (b. 8 Jun 1929, Gallitzin, PA)
Shirley Ann (b. 12 Jun 1935, Glenwhite, PA)
Marilyn Evelyn (b. 27 Nov 1940, Glenwhite, PA)

George left Pennsylvania for Michigan in 1941 in order to find work, and in May 1942 the rest of the family moved to Michigan, except for Julia, who was already married.

I meant to ask about John's exact death date, but it slipped my mind - I'll ask the next time I see my grandmother, which should be on Sunday.

Hi,

Thanks for the information.

I believe the name of the place is Connellsville. That is where my great grandparents John Tutko and Margaret Mearnic were married. They lived there for sometime then moved to Gallitzin (not sure about the dates though).

My grandpap told me about some these siblings. Michael Mearnic was nicknamed "Stump" because he was so short. Another one had only one eye because he lost it in the mines. George was nicknamed "Pat". Julius was called "Jake or Jakie".

I do have some photos of the Mearnics. I have Joseph and Julia (the parents of this family), and also some of Margaret.

Hi!

I understand this is an old posting, but I'm hoping you are still checking in some way or other.
I've been trying to follow my grandma's line, Julia C. Henry (Mearnic).
I came across your postings.
I would love it if you could share whatever information you have.

Thanks!!
