Helvetia, Pa

I have been doing research on several families in the Punxy area. My wifes family is mainly from Punxy but her grandmother came from Slovakia in 1898 to Helvetia to live with her aunt and sister. I do not have any additional info about the aunt or sister but her Grand Mothers name was Mary Turansky and she had two brothers Mike and John who also came over a few years later. She married John Sugar(s) from Punxy and resided and raised a family in Punxsutawany. Any info about Helvetia would be of interest.

Thank You
