Linda,
My great grandparents: Matyas I and Anna Redl-Virag
My grandparents: Matyas II and Elizabet Bokor-Virag
All born in: Hercegfalva, Hungary.
My grandparents settled in Passaic, NJ.
I am in the process of researching my great grandfathers siblings.
I did discover a Jozeph Virag in Wakaw, Canada. Some Virag's went to Canada as well as the US. This Jozeph Virag may have been a brother to my great grandfather.

Do you know where your Virag ancestors came from?

Jean,
I do not have very much info. on them yet, but they were in Dayton, Ohio and I saw Mrs. Virag's name in a book that Lester Binnie wrote about the Abraham Abshire Family from VA, IN, etc.(see Univ. of WI Library list). I believe Mrs. Virag wanted to join the DAR and was getting info. for that plus she could have been related to the John H. France (Frantz) family from Penn., Ohio, VA, IN, etc.
Have you looked in the Ohio area for family? I have not yet. Mrs. Virag and a Mrs. Paul Carnahan from Leavenworth, KS, may have known each other because both ladies help Binnie with his book and with the same family. Have you ever heard of a Mrs. Carnahan?
Please keep in touch. Any info. will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
Linda

Linda,
Sorry for the late comeback. Do you know the ages of M. M. Joseph Virag? How are you related to them? Are you related to Joseph Virag, or his wife?
There are alot of Virag's in the NE part of the U.S.
The other names you mentioned were not familiar to me.
I have been doing my genealogy for a couple of years now, and have found numerous ancestors, but only a handful of descendants.
Let me know if you've had any luck.

Jean,
Thank you for your reply. Mrs. Carnahan was one of the town (Delaware/Lansing/Leavenworth, KS) historians and I understand that she was related to me by way of my grandmother, Julia Bell Sanders, brother-in-law.
I believe Mrs. Joseph Virag was related to my ggggrandfather, Abrahan Abshire, because she was getting info for herself to join the DAR back in 1930 or so.
In the book "History of KS", and Binnies book, one will find materials contained in letters from Mrs. Paul A. Carnahan (Leavenworth, KS) to Mrs. Joseph Virag (of Dayton, Ohio) about the Abshires, etc.
As I stated before, my gggrandfather T.J. Abshire was a son to Abraham Abshire and my gggmother Eliza Moore France Abshire was related to these ladies both on the France side and the Abshire side. If you come into some history or genealogy on these subjects, please keep me posted. I believe the France Family were related to Mrs. Virag, but I do not know her maiden name, yet.

My Abshire line is from Berkeley County, WV/VA; Peter Abshire/Abshear married Sara Kessley (or Copp) and they died in 1894 and 1909 respectively. Any connection?
