Zykan Family Genealogy Forum
I am not sure of this one....never heard these stories......my grandfather, John, started his trash hauling company in St. Louis (Ferguson) in 1932 (the same year my father Donald R. Zykan was born) after the WW2, the company moved to Florissant and the three sons Ed, Joe and Don R. grew the company from there (Zykan Bros. Hauling)
My Grandfather(John) died either in 1953 or 54, I was born in 52, Ed passed about 72, 73, my dad (Donald R.) passed in 99, and Joe is still living, in Florissant. He is the last living child of John Zykan and is 77 years old. (there were 15 children in the family) John had a brother in the Overland, Mo area, by the name of Al I believe, who also has a large family......there are many Zykan's around the St. Louis area, but few of them communicate or meet with one another, but I am sure all are related.
Good Luck on your search and keep sharing information, as will I......
