Enos Kavcic and Apolonia Albrecht Family

Enos Kavcic was born 10 August 1856 in Austria. He married Apolonia Albrecht about 1887. Apolonia was born 9 February 1859 in Austria and was the daughter of Herman and Mary Albrecht. They had two daughters in Austria, Mary and Helena, before deciding to come to the United States.

Enos immigrated to America in June of 1892 (according to his naturalization record). Apolonia arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on 15 December 1893 aboard the ship "Pennsylvania".

Enos and Apolonia lived on the Ohio and Pennsylvania border. They lived in East Palestine, Columbiana County, Ohio when their son Charles Carl Kavic was born in 1894. Their other four children were born in Pennsylvania, where the family lived in Darlington Township, Beaver County.

Their two oldest children would arrive in New York City on 14 December 1902, 9 years after their mother immigrated.

Enos died on 19 October 1908. Apolonia married a man named Frank Kavcic on 25 April 1910 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. No relation has been found between Enos and Frank.

In the 1910 census, Apolonia and Frank are living together in Beaver County, Pennsylvania with Apolonia's 5 youngest children. This census is also the first time that a variation of the Couchie surname is used. Apolonia would later use Couchee, her son Frank would use Couche, and the rest of the family used Couchie. Their Americanized surname does not appear to be used during Enos' lifetime.

Apolonia moved with her children to East Palestine. She later lived at the Little Sisters of the Poor home in Cleveland, Ohio. She died on 3 September 1945 in Cleveland. They were both buried at St. Mary's Cemetery in East Palestine.

Their children were:
  1. Mary (18 Dec 1889-20 Jan 1967) married Jacob Trobec.
  2. Helena (5 Apr 1891-27 Mar 1916) married Frank Bogatay.
  3. Charles Carl (6 Sep 1894-24 Mar 1980) married Stella Viola Tyson.
  4. Jean (29 Dec 1896-16 Nov 1958) married Antony Brelih.
  5. Anna (25 Jun 1898-8 Apr 1993) married George Bernard Schulz.
  6. Angela Catherine (21 May 1900-16 Sep 1969) married Edward Charles Eiswerth.
  7. Frank Martin (21 Sep 1902-28 Jun 1969) married Alice Veronica Kegelmyer.
