Greetings,,have just seen your post re: Kana
My grandmother was Anna Agnes Kana/Kanna (etc) depending on whom you asked. Her parents were John Kana and Susan (Janik) Kana. I believe they arrived on the Kaiser Wilhelm out of Bremen Germany in approximately 1908 or so. They settled in Youngstown, Ohio. John's brother was Joseph, but I do not know the name of Jospeh's wife. John was illiterate and Susan was the educated one who was instrumental in starting at least two businesses. Susan died in 1918 of cardia complications during the flu epidemic. The children of John and Susan Kana were: Martin, John, Joseph, Anna, Mary, and Catherine. I have just returned this week from visiting an elderly aunt (the wife of Joseph) and gotten much to help with my search. The older John Kana worked for the railroad cleaning locomotives. The family name was Americanized to Kana and later to Kanna. One of Jhon's daughters even added Mc to Kana so her father couldn't find her when she left home. If you think there may be some connection,,, pls e-mail me at
