In Reply to: JOSEPH IGNATIUS ISTVAN/YUGOSLAVIA?TO MD by BONNIE MCVOY TREON of 10

I just received a WONDERFUL email from a
relative that I did not know I had!

My grandpa, JOSEPH IGNATIUS ISTVAN came from
Austria-Hungary. His first wife was
ELIZABETH HAUS,7-12-1896 to 12-1918, from Yugoslavia. They had 3 children. JOSEPH who died as a young man, ELIZABETH TERESA (BETTY),b.1918,m.JONES,d? and another daughter who is still living.

ELIZABETH HAUS ISTVAN died when daughter
BETTY ISTVAN was a baby. BETTY and siblings
were raised by their dad's sister and her
husband. (LEOPOLD and THERESA ISTVAN LOTSPECIH--she was JOSEPH SR.'s sister)

JOSEPH ISTVAN later remarried (before 1923) to MAMIE BUCKLER WILLIAMS and had a large
family in HUGHSVILLE,MD. My mother was one
of the children and her name was MARY TERESA
ISTVAN OGRADY MCVOY 1923-1979.

This wonderful email from the daughter in law
of BETTY JONES,deceased, tells that the parents of JOSEPH ISTVAN,SR & sister,THERESA,
were JOHANN ISTVAN,state of BASCHA, HUNGARY-YUGOSLAVIA and TERASIA FEHN, state of
BASCHA, HUNGARY YUGOSLAVIA. (she states her
belief that this was the time when the country's borders were changing.)

IF ANYONE HAS ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON
THESE FAMILIES, PLEASE CONTACT:
