Surnames: Zikeli, Konrad
I noticed you had Andy Zikeli in the lineage. I don't know if there is a connection but my greatgrandparents were Andreas (Andrew, Andy)Konrad son of Johann Konrad and Sara Zikeli. Andreas Konrad was born 29 Oct 1881, in the Village of Maldorf (Domald), Commune of Viisoara, Mures (Miersch), Translyvania (Siebenburgen), Romania, Austria-Hungary. (the names of these places changed over time) He had several sibilings including Michael and George. Andreas Konrad married Marie Zikeli on 21 Aug 1904 in Maldorf. Marie Zikeli was born 29 Sep 1885 in Maldorf. Her parents were Andreas Zikeli and Marie ??.

Andreas Konrad immigrated to Homestead, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, final destination was stepbrother? Andreas Zikeli. Andreas Konrad travelled on ship Wittekind arriving in Baltimore, Maryland on 22 Mar 1905. Andreas Konrad traveled with two Michael Zikeli's. They appeared to be cousins or possibly stepbrothers. The Zikeli's Andreas Konrad came to stay with apparently settled in Elmwood, PA. Andreas Konrad's wife, Marie Zikeli, immigrated, with their infant child, also Andreas Konrad, to Clairton, PA, traveling on ship Kaiserin Auguste Victoria arriving on 9 Apr 1907 at Ellis Island, New York.

Andy and Marie had eight children, moved to Cleveland, OH around 1912. Andy died 18 Sept 1953 and Marie died 17 May 1949. I am a descendent, in that they were my great grandparents. I understand that the Zikeli's in Elmwood, PA and possibly some in Cleveland, OH, are distant relatives.

If you find out more about your Andy Zikeli and Sarah Grell, let me know..They might be relatives of my greatgrandparents.
