Possibly my great-great-grandparents?

This photo is in a frame and was found among my great-grandfather's (Janos Peto) belongings.  Possibly his parents?

This is my great grandfather, Janos (John) Peto sometime in the late 1960s early 1970s.  Not sure who the baby is though.

This is him in the 1950s I think....looking like a movie gangster. :)…

Szilagyi family research



My great-great-grandmother was Elizabeth Szilagyi, she was born 11 Feb 1853 (according to the obituary found in a Michigan newspaper).  Her parents were listed on her death certificate as Teme Szilagyi and Ersebet Cauka.  Elizabeth married Sgimond or Zsigmond Bertalan between 1872 and 1874 (census gives her age of first marriage as 20)  in Hungary.  Zsigmond died before 1910 because on the ship record for their son Imre, he lists his mother, the widow Zsigmond…

Elizabeth Szilagyi Bertalan and her sons and grandchildren

This photo is of my great-great-grandmother Elizabeth Szilagyi Bertalan and on the far left is my great-grandfather (Emery Bertalan).  The man next to him I now believe to be his brother Louis Bertalan.  The very tall young man in the rear and the girl in front of him are probably his (Louis') children.  The young boy in the front and the two younger girls are my great-grandfather's children from his second marriage...my grandfather's half-siblings.…

Picture may be of my great-grandmother

The woman in the middle of this picture may be Ester Stella Liska Peto....my great-grandma.  On the back, very faintly, it says Mrs. Peto.  I think she is surrounded by coal miners and I wonder if one of them near her might be her son John Peto who was killed in a mining accident in 1927. ???…
