This is a long shot but... I am looking for info about my great grandfather John Lochan,born 1892 in Botosani, Romania (Austria). I believe he immigrated to the US, Detroit @1913, and I know he died shortly after in 1916, possibly came to US via Canada with his wife Caterine Muntean and son Charles. After his death Catherine married Paul Poroch, who according to family stories, also traveled with them from Romania to N. America.

Most of this info comes from John's death certificate which is really the only documentation I've been able to find other than his tombstone. It's possible he came to US via Bucharest. There are contradictory family stories.
