Thank You so much I have never seen a picture of my relatives past my Grandmother Anna. I have just begun searching and it is very exciting. My father was Thomas, son of Anna and Thomas Matasovsky. His sister was Margaret and his bro was Donald. They grew up in mpls at least for the most part. I know my father did spend some time in southern Mn working on his Uncles farm? I dont know the name of his Uncle? The pictures you shared are priceless.

Thank you Karen for giving me this information oin the Family ties. I like to get all that in there because it seems to give me a feeling of closure when you can join the whole family together. I know I have relation from coast to coast and some of the brothers and sisters are that far apart, but when you can see them together on Find A Grave, it just gives you the feeling that you are getting the family all together again. So I thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

Andrew Havir
I went to Hillside Cemetery and took pictures of the Havir graves that had not been placed on Find A Grave. I also wrote a Bio for Andrew, could you add this for me.

Andrew Havir was born August 1885 in Austria/Hungary to George and Sussie Havir, he was their only child. Andrew immigrated to American about 1879 according to the census records. He married Anna Matyasovsky in 1883. Anna Matyasovsky was born July 1866 in Austria/Hungary to George Juary and Anna (Hliboki) Matyasovsky. She immigrated to America in 1884 with her parents and sisters and brothers. Anna died December 4th 1948 in Hennepin County, Minnesota. Interment: Hillside Cemetery, N.E. Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Andrew and Anna had 13 children according to the census records. I have birth records for all 13 and death records for 12 of their children. According to the 1900 census Anna had 8 children and 7 were living when the 1900 census was taken. Anna, Andrew, Thomas and Mary were born in Streator, Illinois and Frank (their son who died before the 1900 census) was born, April 7th 1893 in Minneota, Jackson County, Minnesota. John, Steve, Susie, Mike, Henry, Emma (Louise), Lewis and Irwin were all born in Jackson County, Minnesota.
Andrew's mother Susie immigrated to America in 1889 after her husband died. She lived with Andrew and his family in Streator, Illinois, and then moved to Jackson County, Minnesota with him. Susie is on the June 14th 1905 Census, living with her son Andrew and his family, she is not on the 1910 Census with her son Andrew. Andrew and Anna owned their farm in Jackson County, they had about 160 acres, and the land is now a natural preserve.
Andrew and his family attended Trinity Evangelical (Slovak) Lutheran Church. The church was built in 1901, about the time Andrew and Anna donated the land, the church still exist.
Andrew and his family moved to Hennepin County, Minneapolis about 1917, they bought a home at 407 Ontario Street in South Minneapolis. Andrew lived there until his death; he died March 26 1937 at home. Interment: Hillside Cemetery, N.E. Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I have found the spelling of his first name as: Andrew, Andro and Andy.
The spelling of his last name: Havir and Havier.

Andrew and Anna's great granddaughter.

Muriel Masterson Gott
I am wondering why you posted the picture of Muriel.

I just discovered she was a cousin of my father. When I was at the Fulton Cemetery, in Fulton OCunty, Indiana, I discovered she was buried next to her mother, father, brother and sister-in-law. I had never met her mother, but I so loved her father, We used to visit Uncle Cassel oftern in my hometown in INdiana.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I put a lot of my family on before they had this added feature, now I need to go through and re-do it all. Once again, Thanks! Thanks for the picture too!

Happy Grave Finding,
