Anna, my grandmother, was born 10 Mar 1895 in Prislup, Zemplinska Zupa, Austria-Hungary (today's Slovakia) to Ivan Pereksta and Olena Sidor.  She died 19 Oct 1982 in Johnson City, Broome County, NY.

  5. Anna Pereksta --she came from the area that my husbands family was from. Some still there. His fathers name was John his Moms was Mary. From what I can remember the town was also Pislop. Spelling may be wrong. My husband was the "baby" of the family, he died in 1994. I still keep in touch with some of the relatives from Johnson City.
