Washington County PA

 

From time to time (rarely), I will look-up a few records for a family not related to me. I am too busy to do look-ups very often.  I decided to share some of the searches here that I've done.

Background: The request came in an email.

... I was looking for information on Elko, Pa., where my father was born and raised. His name was John Piontka. He was born Nov. 25, 1918 to Joseph and Marcella Piontka in Elko. He served in WWII as an operating room sergeant in north Africa and Italy during the war. He was good friends with Berky Obitko, and Tiny Platikus. As a child, I remember going to visit my grandparents and aunts and uncles at the home of my Grandparents. I believe that their home was located at the intersection of Forsythe way and route 88. As kids, our fathers used to take us across Rt 88 and the tracks to Gabricks tavern for grape ne-hi pop. I have more information on my father, but not in hand at this moment. If you would like more details of his military career, life, and death, please email me...  Perhaps you may be able to help me in my search for information on Elko during the 40s and 50s.


INFORMATION FROM MY LOOK-UP SEARCHES
My searches were limited to US Federal Census.
Joseph Anthony Piontka 
Birth Date: 8 Jan 1883 
RESIDENCE: Washington, Pennsylvania 
Birth: Lithuania 
Roll: WW2_2139505 
Note regarding the images for the states of PA, MD, WV, and DE. These four states were scanned at the National Archives facility in such a way that the back of one personís draft card appears on the same image as the front of the next individual. The result is that when you click to view the original image, you will see the correct front side of the draft card, but the back of the previous soldierís card. Ancestry is aware of this problem, and is working to correct this issue.
