Thankyou for your reply. Lets see if we have a match. This is what I know.

Anna Antal born about 1857, died after 1913.
Andras Fuzi born about 1855, died before 1913.
These are my great grandparents. They were Hungarians living in Homorod Co. Transylvania. The Fuzi family may have been from Karacsonfalva.

Ilona Fuzi (my grandmother) b. July 18, 1894 Szekelyzsombor, d. June 7, 1933 Dearborn, Michigan. She had a brother Janos b. about 1892. Ilona married Joseph Frank December 3, 1908 Belmont Co., Ohio. They had one son Joseph Frank b. March 9, 1910 d. February 26, 1988. He was my Uncle Joe. Ilona married a second time to my grandfather Frank Eski.

There was also an Uncle Andy Fuzi who had a farm out in Davidson, Michigan.

I found pictures of Szekelyzsombor on the Unitarian Fellowship of Redwood City. Are these the ones you mean?

Does any of this fit the picture.
Anxiously awaiting your reply.

I am searching for information on Antals of Transylvania. My great grandfather was Martin Antal who came to Martins Ferry, Ohio in 1905. His brothers, Andrew and Peter, followed in 1908. They came from Wolkendorf (Vulkany). They were Hungarian. It is my understanding that there were seven brothers and one sister (married to a Renner or Remer). Does this information correspond to yours in any way? I am hoping to find more information on this family. I think Andrew and Peter must have gone back to Transylvania before 1930. It is possible they also had a brother named George.
