Zigmond Pinkoczy
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Jul. 2, 1890, Hungary
Death: Jun. 2, 1951
Dearborn
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Zigmond came over from Hungary as a
young man. I believe that he may
have worked in the coal mines at
first, but that is based on what
I remember my mother telling me.
Eventually he moved to Detroit, MI
to find work in the automobile
industry. He ended up working at
Ford Motor Company. He married a
Hungarian widow named Ameila, who
had 4 sons. (one had died young,
before that point in time)

They went on to have 3 daughters.
All of them are now deceased, Grace, Rose
and Olga. From very reliable family
sources, I know that he was a very
kind and loving father, and a hard
worker. His death at a rather young age of 61
may have related to his working in the coal mines. He died before I was born,
unfortunately. He married a woman
with five sons. That tells me that
he was very much in love with Amelia,
and that he had a generous and also
a responsible nature. Reportedly,
he also had a lively sense of humor. My mother was especially close to him, and she was the baby of the family.
Hungarian was spoken in their home.
All of them also spoke English.
Their children were of course required
to speak, read, and write in English,
in school. They belonged to a Hungarian
Reformed Church, and the daughters danced the Hungarian dances at the church and other events. Grace was gifted in music and trained professionally in piano and organ performance.
They were of course, strict with their
children in the "old country" way,
particularly their daughters.

Millions of Americans came from their
homelands, to the United States to
find a better and improved life.
Zigmond was lucky enough to find one.
