Mowchans of Pennsylvania and Ohio - do you know abt NY?
Posted by: bill miller (ID *****7538) Date: May 20, 2004 at 22:03:11
  of 12

Iíve requested this forum to help my wife and her family find out more about their ancestors. Her father is in his mid-80s now and has told me all he knows. Now I need your help.

Their family tradition says, that when Andrew Mowchan immigrated to the US from the Ukranian speaking portion of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, he came with a brother who settled in New York State.

No one knows the brotherís name or if he even exists. So far I have been unable to match the supposed ca. 1900 immigration date.

Sometimes the name is spelled Mowczan.

These Mowchans settled in and about Smoke Run, Pennsylvania [Western Pennsylvania Ė sort of north of Pittsburgh] and some, including my father-in-law, migrated to Cleveland Ohio.

One wonders how long it will take you Mowchans to find this forum.

Thanks for any help,
Bill Miller
