Johann Kallis born in 1797 in Groß-Collat
(today Poland) arrived with his Family in
Friedenstal (Bessarabia at that time Russia)
about 1835. His Name as far as my father told me was formerly spelt Kallies.
In the records of the Kallis family as far as I know them there is no connection to Hungary or South Africa.
Since the name of your Family originally was spelt Kalis or Kalisch it is probable that the Kallis family from Friedenstal is not connected with your family
greetings from Germany
