History and Miscellaneous
  Elizabeth came to the U.S. on the ship "TRAVE" on March 11, 1907 (Ellis Island spelled her name "Erzsebet) and went to Erie, PA to her brother-in-law Andrew Grega at 1114 Prospect St.  She was a maid servant when she came from Karos and had $2.  

Her husband and her lived at 1106 Prospect (now 11th Street) in Erie, PA according to the 1908 Erie Directory.  Elizabeth then lived two doors away from her sister Mary Kurta Grega when Anna Grega Kuzma was born at 1114 Prospect.

Her husband, John Schiller, came on the Lahn on June 13, 1901 under the name "Janos Silluler."  John's father came on the Cassel on April 19, 1902 (under the name Janos) and then went back and died in Slovakia.

She was called "Aunt Lizzy" by all and has Lizala on her tombstone.  She was 28 when she died in childbirth.
