My grandfather's mother was Rozalia Fischer who was born in Hochstetno, the Kingdom of Hungary on 23 June 1855. She died in Hochstetno on 13 March 1929. Rozalia married Jan Illy on 11 June 1876. My grandfather migrated to Milwaukee Wisconsin in the early 1900's. In the 1950's, my grandmother kept refering to the Fischer memebers of the family who lived in the Milwaukee area. I never met any of these Fischers, I was under the impression that they were older relatives. The only other information I have is that Rozalia Fischer's father was called Stefan Fischer and her mother was also called Rozalia Fischer nee Korenics. Oh yes, Hochstetno, the town that they came from is just a few miles northeast of Bratislava, Slovakia and Vienna Austria. The family spoke Slovak and German. If anyone can tie into this Fischer family, please contact me. I have some more information that may be helpful.

Dear Cynthia:

Reviewing my previous email, I note that I provided you with all the information that I have about the Fischers in Hochstetno. I do know as a fact that neither Rozalia's father nor mother (Stefan Fischer Rozalia Korenics) were born or married in Hochstetno. I checked the Hochstetno parish records and the records of the nearby neighboring parishes and could not find anything further on either the Fischer or the Korenics family. It would appear that they moved to Hochstetno from some other area prior to 23 June 1855 when their daughter Rozalia was born. This is unusual, as people did not move very often back then. I have traced other branches of my family in Hochstetno going back to the 1600's.

One possibility is that Stefan Fischer was in the military and was transferred with his wife to the Hochstetno area. When time permits, I will check the military records, if any, for Stefan. This is a shot in the dark.

Rozalia Fischer married Jan Illy on 11 June 1876. Together they had three children, one of which is my maternal grandfather, Franz Jozef Illy. On my maternal grandfathers side I have information going back to 1526.

If you can tie into Jan Illy, I have tons of information. But unfortunately, the Fischers are still a mystery to me.

One final note, today Hochstetno is called Vysoka pri Morave. The town has a history going back to the 1200's. Prior to being called Hochstetno, it was called Hochstadt (German) and Magasfalu (Hungarian). The names all refer to the fact that the town is supposedly on high ground. But, when I visited Hochstetno, it appeared to be very flat. It is on the banks of the Morave River.

At this time, I am not able to make any definite connection between our Fischer families. Out of the hundreds of names in my family tree, I have the least amount of information about the Fischer family. The Fischers have been the most illusive, hard for me to tract down.

The only information I have is that my great-grandmother Rozalia Fischer was born in Hochstetno (Slovakia) on June 23, 1855. She married Jan Illy on June 11, 1876. She died in Hochstetno on March 13, 1929. Her parents were Stefan Fischer and Rozalia Korenics. I have no further information on the parents.

Her son, my grandfather, Frantisek (Franz Jozef) Illy came to the United States in the early 1900's. He changed his last name to Illek, Illak, and finally to Ellak. He lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He was suppose to have Fischer relatives living in Milwaukee or in the immediate Milwaukee area. I was young and don't remember ever meeting any of these Fischer relatives, their names came up when my grandparents mentioned other members of the family in their conversations.

Perhaps, as we acquire more information, we will be able to make a connection. If you are able to make a connection, please let me know.

I have been looking for info on my grandfather George Frederich Fischer (born about 1875) who was possibly adopted from American-Indian reservation in Wisconsin by a Fischer family. He went back to Germany and medical school in Heidelberg about 1896. Married Emily Oetiker(from Zurich, Swiss)
