[Bio by Sean Potochney]
"Mary" = Maria (Imbra) Potochney was actually born 20 Aug 1876 in Kurima, Slovakia according to church records. (The 1878 tombstone birth year is off a bit - it was very common for surviving children to not know exact birth years for their immigrant parents).

Maria (Imbra) Potochney was the daughter of Janos Saffian-Imbra and Susanna Zsatkovich. ["Zs" is pronounced like the "s" in "treasure" - something in between a "Z" and a "J" like the actress Zsa Zsa Gabor].

Maria immigrated to the U.S. sometime in 1890's and married her husband Janos ("John") Potochney in Freeland, PA February 6, 1897. This branch of the Potochney family eventually moved to the Centralia, PA area around 1902.
