In Reply to: Christ family of Pottstown, PA by Veronica Beinstingel Stroud of 282

Update on information:

I am researching the following names Christ, Kriszt, Limberger, Fisher,
Minch, Yekel and Hok. Most are out of Mekenyes, in Baranya Megye Hungary.

Below is more information on the families:

Conrad Christ or Kriszt
born: June 24, 1870
in Mekeynes
Left for USA on March 30, 1909 from Antwerp, Belgium
Arrived NY, USA on April 12 or 13, 1909
under name: Johann Christ ?
died: March 21, 1922 in Pottstown, Montgomery Co., PA

Parents:
John Jonas Christ (was deceased by 1918)
of Mekenyes
Katharine Limberger (was deceased by 1918)
of Mekenyes

First Wife:
Elizabeth Fisher Kriszt or Christ
born: Dec 18, 1877
in Mekenyes
Arrived NY, USA on April 26, 1911 from Antwerp, Belgium
under name: Elizabet Kriszt
died: Nov 6, 1913 in Upper Pottsgrove, Montgomery Co, PA

Parents:

Regina Minch

Arriving with Elizabeth were their two children:
Janos Kriszt
born: Oct 12, 1902
in Mekenyes
Erzsebet Kriszt
born: Dec 5, 1904
in Mekenyes

Conrad Christ second wife
Anna Marie Yekel
born in Hungary
married July 11, 1918
in Pottstown, Montgomery Co., PA

Parents: (both still living in Hungary 1918)
Conrad Yekel (was a farmer)
of Hungary
Anna Hok

Documents I have are as follows:

Conrad Christ
Possible Ellis Island Passenger Record
Petition for Naturalization
Declaration of Intention
Certificate of Arrival
2nd Marriage Application and Certificate
1920 Census
Death Certificate
Location of Burial

Elizabeth Fisher Christ
Ellis Island Passenger Record
3rd daughters birth register (Catharine Louisa Christ, Dec. 6, 1911; Lower
Pottsgrove, Montgomery Co., PA)
Death Certificate
Burial Location

Janos Kriszt
Ellis Island Passenger Record
1920 Census

Elisabeth Christ
Ellis Island Passenger Record
1920 Census

Anna Marie Yekel
Marriage Record to Conrad Christ
but she was married before and divorced on Feb 14, 1918
due to desertion, no name given for her first husband but family believes it
might have been Hoffman

Anyone got any clues on these family names? Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks
Veronica Beinstingel Stroud
