Subject: [HUNGARY] The surname Junga
I'm pretty sure Junga is a German name. I assume it's pronounced Yunga?
After all these years, in looking over the same record I've looked at a hundred times, I noticed that Janos Junga was widowed before he married my gggrandma.
I have found him on the census with my gggrandma : 1920 in Moriah town, Essex Co. Ny and 1930 in Ecorse, Wayne County, Mi ( which is a few miles from Detroit).
Most of the Yunga/Junga's I see list themselves as German. Janos Junga was always listed as Hungarian, born in Hungary. He spoke Hungarian.
I've found Yunga/Junga's in cemeteries in Detroit and Toledo, which is abt. an hour distance.
I may have found him on the 1910 in Toledo Ohio. He says he is Hungarian, born in Hungary, been married for 16 yrs, but his wife is not living with him. Immigration date is 1890. Is this him?
Or could this be him on the 1900 census in Detroit , where he lists himself as German, born in Germany? imm year 1888. Is this him?
Is there another way to spell Junga/Yunga? I can't find him on Ellis Island because I think he immigrated too early. I can't find him on Castle garden....so, where was he before 1920 and who was he married to? I want to find out if he had children.
