Jean

Is this the family as found in the 1930 Frazer, Allegheny Co PA census?

Name Age
Adam Voytek 35 Slovak arr US 1910 Naturalized
Mary Voytek 34 Slovak arr US 1902 Alien
Joseph Voytek 15
Elizabeth Voytek 4/12
Joseph Bucha 43 Boarder

The family below appears in the 1920 Tarentum PA Census, could this be them?

Name Age
Joe Vogtek 39 Slovak born Nitra arr US 1906
Mary Vogtek 25 Slovak born Trenchin arr US 1907
Annie Vogtek 5
Emil Vogtek 4
[4 3/12]
Joe Vogtek 1
[1 5/12]

The birthyear HE gave on his Social Security app was 1893, but the only accurate source would be the parish records in Slovakia.... as often people did not know their correct birthdate

Name: Adam Voytek
SSN: 541-22-8524
Last Residence: 97374 Scio, Linn, Oregon, United States of America
Born: 24 Dec 1893
Died: 20 Feb 1988
State (Year) SSN issued: Oregon (Before 1951)

This is also listed on his Oregon Death Record.... but then death certificates and obits can be among the most inaccurate records we may find

Name: Voytek, Adam
County: Linn
Death Date: 20 Feb 1988
Certificate: 88-03862
Age: 94
Birth Date: 24 Dec 1893
Spouse: Mary

Just look at the age found on Mary's Death Certificate... by the reckoning of the census records her age is off by about 20 years!
Name: Voytek, Mary
County: Marion
Death Date: 1 Oct 1970
Certificate: 15344
Age: 95
Spouse: Adam

Then what appears to be your Adam's WW I Draft Registration he gave the following info

Name: Adam Vojtek
County: Jefferson
State: Pennsylvania
Birthplace:Lotisha, Trenchan, Austria
Birth Date: 23 Dec 1894
Race: Caucasian (White)
FHL Roll Number: 1893243

But then his WW II Draft Registration he gave the following info

Name: Adam Voytek
Birth Date: 22 Dec 1895
Birth Place: Terchova
Residence: Scio, Oregon
Race: White
Roll: 31887_B016919

This would appear to be his ship manifest He did not come from a place called Techova as you indicated it is Trencsen

Name: Adam Vojtek
Arrival Date: 23 Nov 1910
Birth Year: abt 1892
Birth Location and last residence: Trencsen Hungary, next of kin his mother Anna VOJTEK
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Race­: Slovakian
Port of Departure: Cuxhaven
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Cleveland
Destination Portage PA to his father Jan VOJTEK

Trencsen is now Trencin Slovakia located 66.6 miles NE of Bratislava
