Carl F. Beyers was born in Pennsylvania to an English-born father and a Polish-born mother. “Beyers” surname is usually German, or Scottish (https://www.houseofnames.com/beyers-family-crest). “Kozak” and “Ripko” surnames are likely Czech.

Anna Ripko parents are listed as Slovaks on census, and when you look for a Michael Ripko on familysearch several people called Michael Repka appear in Slovakia and one Mihaly Ripko (but the last one doesn’t fit the other criteria).
