|SEVCIK / SEFCHICK posted by Barbara Sefchick Wood on 8/20/2003.|
(Morann) Some of my relatives from GERLACHOV, SLOVAKIA emigrated to the USA years ago. Some settled in the STRATTON and EMPIRE OHIO area, and some in HAWK RUN, PA. Their last names were spelled SEVCIK in Slovakia. Some americanized the name to be spelled as SEFCHICK in the USA. Michal SEVCIK sent many letters from STRATTON, OH to his family back in Slovakia up until he died. It is believed that Michal's father Peter, and his sisters...Anna, Maria, and Julie settled in HAWK RUN, PA,(Clearfield County) where Peter died in 1917 and was buried in the Greek Catholic cemetery there. Peter spelled his last name SEFCHICK in the USA. Does anyone know this SEVCIK or SEFCHICK family? I don't know if any of them are still living. I am trying to help my family in Slovakia by asking if any one knows anything about this family. Please contact me if you can help. Thank you and God Bless you!
