Do you have any information on the ancestral roots of John and Mary Jurison (and by extention, Anna Oleska's parents)? Do you have any memories of them, or of Andrew and Anna Jurison? All I know of them is what my former posts said. I also have a copy of a baptism certifiate (well, index really) that I believe to be our John Jurison. It is written in Slovak. It indicates a "Johannes Jurissin", son of Johannes Jurissin and Anna Kacsmar, as being born in 1852 in Richvald, Bardejov, Slovakia, and baptized in a Catholic Church. That would put the dates and place about right. My grandma has always said that side was Catholic...what religion is your Jurison side predominately?
