I am unsure which last name she came here with. I am thinking Gregoria because my great Aunt stated they have a paper with her name listed as that. Unfortunately my great Uncle (son of my great-grandmother from second marriage)has been going through some illnesses lately and she hasn't been able to get that information for me.Her name was Maria Elizabeth. I have a copy of one of her children from the second marriage and her name is listed as Marie Christia. My mom mentioned she had ended up in Michigan for awhile. I am also thinking Gregoria was her married name because one of my cousins mentioned her dad (my great Uncle)use to tell a story about a double-agent spy by the name Gregoria who was killed and my great Aunt then mentioned that was my great-grandmother's name because of a paper she has. She did remarry in America to a Samuel J. Ehora (Spyvidion J. Thora)and they resided in Lima, Allen County, Ohio. Samuel was my great-grandfather and came to America in 1907 and went to New York to work with a cousin (I found his immigration information). We are unsure of exact marriage date for Marie and Sam but thinking it was around 1914 because they had their first child in 1915 in Lima, Allen County, Ohio. I have an old article they did on my grandmother on contacting relatives in Romania and a place called Turnurosu was mentioned as where some of her cousins resided in the 1980's.
