Connie, not sure if there's any connection but my great-grandfather Miklos (?) Kovacs and his family settled in the Lansford, PA area in the early 1900's. Our name was changed to Kowatch when my grandfather (George Kowatch, born in Austria/Hungary 1900?) went to school. My research into the history of the Kowatch side of our family is in its infancy, so I don't have a lot of info to pass along. I do know that I have relatives in Palmerton (Kowatch) and Nesquehoning (Kovach), PA. I'm not sure what my great-grandmother's maiden name was, but I know my grandmother's maiden name was Youchock. I think she was born in Lansford, PA. I have more info at home and will get back to you later.
