Hi, I'm looking for information on my great grandfather John Joseph Kovach. All information I have is from a conversation I recently had with his daughter Margaret (my grandmother).

name: John Joseph Kovach (may have been changed from Kovacs)
born: 26 April 1889 in Hungary (possibly Budapest)
died: October 1967
occupation: Steel Mill Worker in NJ, possibly a gardener in Hungary.
US arrival: about 1906/1907

First Marriage is to a Barbara.
They lived in Trenton, NJ and had 4 children.
Not much is known about the first marriage except that the wife and children lived very near the wife and children of the second marriage.

Second Marriage is to Mary Margaret Nemeth
born: 25 July 1909 New Jersey
died: 25 January 1971 New Jersey
parents: Joseph & Mary (Hungary)
siblings: Emma, Joseph, Julius and William (maybe Margaret as well)
children: Margaret (1937 PA), Albert (1945 NJ) and Eleanor (1939 NJ)
residence: Trenton, NJ on Division St., then moved a few blocks over to Nashua St.

Any info anyone has on the first marriage or his ancestors would really be a great help. Thanks!!

Michael
