My grandmother, Mary LUCAK, came from Austria to marry my grandfather Metro PETRIK later PATRICK in an arranged marriage. She claims she came into the country in Baltimore and was married in Pocahantas Co.WV. I can't find any record of the marriage. My grandmother was creative with her age - saying she was 15 1/2 to come half-fare and then apparently claiming she was 21 to marry when she arrived. My best guess was that she was 16. One of aunts claims she arrived on Halloween day 1902 but due to the date of their first child 29 June 1904, I think she arrived Sept- Oct 1903. Since it was an arranged marriage they should have married probably within two weeks of arrival which would match with my first aunt's birth.
They were Greek Orthodox in faith; Austrian by birth. Is there a church in Pocahantas co. I should check? Does anyone have any suggestions????? Please email at JAMMable@hotmail.com Many thanks!
