Makary Lou Gesko (Eckhardt)

Finding out more information on this line. My mother (Nellie Irene Wolff) was married for a short time to an Eckhardt. They lived in VA. They were only married a short while. They had a son in 1949(birth name unknown). Shortly after he was born, my mother's husband was sent overseas. It is told that she went with him for a short time, leaving their son with his Great Aunt Marie Gesko and her husband Mack (I think in Detroit, MI). When my mother returned to get her son, he had been formally adopted by his Great Aunt. His Adopted name was Makary Lou Gesko, his nickname "Jackie". He died in 1969 at the age of 20 (spinal mendengitis) while in the military. he was married to his high school sweetheart Barbara (last name unknown). Jackie is buried in the Detroit area. Anyone with any information, please contact me.
