History and Miscellaneous:
  Married Budkovce, Zemplen Co., Slovakia, November 14, 1892.  He was married in the Church of the Holy Trinity in Budkovce.

Paul came to the United States on the ship S.S. Lahn (1837 North German Lloyd line) about March 16, 1899.  He became a US citizen on March 3, 1903 in McCalmont Township, Jefferson Co, PA. His occupation was a blacksmith (in Sagamore for the coal mines) and in Slovakia he was a blacksmith for one of the generals in the army. He moved to Erie in the early 20's. 

When his son Joseph bought the family farm in Summit Township (mid 1930's), Paul would often go there to help with the crops, and enjoyed gardening and playing with his grandchildren.  He would always ask for his stick "cane" to walk, he had this cane he used to walk and plant tomatoes.  He always had a packet of gumdrops for the kids.  He never smoked, but would take two of his his grandsons (Alvie and Ronnie)  to the local tavern on 8th Street for a brew for himself and candy for the boys.
