John Kokajko, Maria Kvochka Kokajko, John & Elizabeth Hercsok

We believe this is our gr-aunt Maria Kvochko, sister to Barbala Kvochko Hercsok. And we know this is her husband John Kokajko, both from Lehocz, Austria Hungary. They took the two younger Hercsok children in after Barbala's death in 1914 and Gyorgy, the father dissapeared. John's first two wives died and he married a third time. So the children had 4 mother's by the time they graduated high school. My gr-aunt Maria survived a dynamic explosion accident while living in double-wide house in North Braddock. They they settled in East Pittsburgh, PA. John worked at the mill.
