Family Ties

This is Haley Gryskevich, and I’ve learned an interesting little tidbit about my family. My father’s side of the family has lived around Weirton, WV for quite awhile, but there’s a strange part to this.

Gryskevich doesn’t sound like a common name, but there are another set of Griskevichs in the area, spelled differently.

Well, it turns out that the two branches are related, and the difference in spelling is accounted for by two brothers down the line who feuded and changed the spelling to separate from each other.

I don’t know what the feud was, but I’m very interested to see if I can learn more about what caused this divide.
