SOCECU FAMILY

SOCECU FAMILY

Classification: Query
Surnames: SOCECU AND BAYR AND PRICE
I am doing family history on Susan Harlan Price (b.1860 or 1862) in Wilmington, Delaware. She married Alexandru SOCECU on 11.June.1884 or 1885 in Vienna, Austria. Alexandru SOCECU was from Bucharest and the son of I.V.SOCECU and Marie Bayr. I.V. SOCECU was a famous bookseller.

I believe that Alexandru was in the Romanian Army. There is another name......SANDOR SOCECU and I am not sure if this was a child of this marriage or perhaps another name for Alexandru.

ALEXANDRU died in 1928 and I do not know the death date of his wife Susan. Any and all help will be appreciated.

Sincerely, Jan Ammann

Alexandru (Alexander) Socec was indeed a general in the Romanian Army in WWI. He was accused of deserting his post in 1916 just west of the Nealjov River. I think he was later found innocent. He was born August 17, 1859 in Bucharest. I do not know if that is Old or New Style. He died 31 May 1928 at the age of 69.
I have copies of parts of his diary that he kept from 1877 to 1928.
You can reply to me at mahoneyresearch@gmail.com if you would like a copy of what I have.
I am writing a book about Eastern Europe and Socec is part of the story.
