Glad to hear from you! Since I posted I have found out that I am not closely related to Anne, although the name is uncommon. An obit names her parents as John Andrew Pitoniak and Sophia Porubovic. (The Westfield MA family spells it Pitoniak, my Bitumen PA branch spells it Pitonyak.) To the best of my knowledge, John was the oldest of the 11 children of Mathew Martin Pitoniak and Susana M. Gmiter (pronounced Meeder). Matt and Susie once lived in Bitumen, and I know a little bit about the Gmiters as there is a connection to my family. Mathew Pitoniak, my grandparent Joseph Pitonyak, and my grandmother Eva Pitonyak all came from the little village of Zdiar, Slovakia, so there is probably a relationship if you go back far enough. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if this seems to be a link you want to follow.
