Re: Mikelonis- looking for relatives and info

In Reply to: Mikelonis- looking for relatives and info by Vicki Lane of 10152

Vicki, I am also looking for information on a Joseph Mikelonis - also spelled Mikalonis and Mikalomus. It is on my husband's side. His mother name was Eva Mikalonis and she married Charles Stanley Wright (his family is in Stillwater, PA). Eva and Charles lived in Long Island, New York most of their lives and then settled in Stillwater, Pennsylvania in the 70's.

Eva's father was Joseph Mikalonis and he was from Lithunia. I think his mother's name was Mary, but not sure. his wife's name was Mary and she died giving birth to a daughter in 1933. Eva and the infant were put up for adoption, but only the infant was adopted. Eva went from Foster home to foster home most of her life. Her siblings are: Mary, Anna, Sylvester and Joan (dtr adopted to another family)

Eva told us her father would leave for extended periods of time. Her family lived in Pennsylvania. I ddi find some records of a Joseph Mikalonis having an address at 1 Wall Street, Boston, MA and also having at the same time an address in Pittston, Pennsylvania. I think he immigrated to USA from Lithuania in 1900 (7 years old) and has a US naturalization 29 jan 1917 and may have served in the military during WW1.

We really do not know much about Joseph Mikalonis since the family broke up in 1933 when his wife died.

Did you find out any other information? You can reached me at wrights85@yahoo.com.
