At this time, I am not able to make any definite connection between our Fischer families. Out of the hundreds of names in my family tree, I have the least amount of information about the Fischer family. The Fischers have been the most illusive, hard for me to tract down.

The only information I have is that my great-grandmother Rozalia Fischer was born in Hochstetno (Slovakia) on June 23, 1855. She married Jan Illy on June 11, 1876. She died in Hochstetno on March 13, 1929. Her parents were Stefan Fischer and Rozalia Korenics. I have no further information on the parents.

Her son, my grandfather, Frantisek (Franz Jozef) Illy came to the United States in the early 1900's. He changed his last name to Illek, Illak, and finally to Ellak. He lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was suppose to have Fischer relatives living in Milwaukee or in the immediate Milwaukee area. I was young and don't remember ever meeting any of these Fischer relatives, their names came up when my grandparents mentioned other members of the family in their conversations.

Perhaps, as we acquire more information, we will be able to make a connection. If you are able to make a connection, please let me know.
