    She is Hungarian. Paternal grandmother was Marilyn J. Lovas (1943-2015), born and died in Pennsylvania, the daughter of Frank Lovas (1898-1960) and Mary Gall. Frank was the son of John Lovas (1855) (Hungary) and Julia Pastor (Hungary). Julia Pastor was the daughter of Frank Pastor and Susan Cardos.

      As I said back in 2017, Marilyn wasn’t her biological grandmother.

      “Marilyn is survived by her daughter, Terersa Potts, of Lawrenceville; sister, Toni Walters, of Elrama; brother, Frank (Grayce) Lovas, of Chile; her stepchildren, step-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.”

      this is a history and genealogy of Fischer family (which is of German origin)

      So Margaret Poland Fisher, who was born in 1842, gave birth to Elizabeth Fischer Ziegler in 1904? Another underreported medical miracle.

      The Findagrave page you link to (a site that must serially be linked to from ethnicelebs as per the international code of genealogy, chiseled into stone in 1387), even states of this completely different Elizabeth Fisher, “She remained single throughout her life, living on the family homestead in Prairie Township, Hancock County, Illinois, with her brothers Samuel L. and Mark M. “Brick” Fisher, and her sister Mary Frances Fisher.”

      No update yet?

    Kurt’s middle name is James. Melissa’s middle name is Ann.

    I am not sure if this was her paternal grandfather:
