Our Family’s Garlic Journey to America
Hungary had political upheaval until WWI in 1918. Many immigrated from the power/politics during this relative calm from 1867 – 1918.
My Great Great Grand Parents, Josef Toth and Anna Czapana were born in Felsogagy, Hungary. (Prounounced Fellsz-o-gaggy)
Like everyone else in that time, they grew their own food in the family garden. The garlic grown today on my farm originated in their garden, which their daughter Borbala brought to America in the late 1890’s.
Great Grandma Borbala - b. 1879, Felsogagy, Hungary
Janos/John Lezark was born February 1869 in Felsogagy, Hungary. He married Borbala/Barbara Toth born September 1879 in Felsogagy, Hungary. They immigrated to America.
Borbala grew her home-land garlic in a window box outside her apartment in New York City.
Shortly thereafter she and her husband moved to Clymer, PA. where she planted her first real garden here in the United States.
My Mother Nancy Jane, sister, and I at age 5
My mother, Nancy Jane Jones, had no passion for gardening vegetables. So, as a small child, my mother sent me stay with my Grandmother Margaret to help her with her garden during the summer months.
Starting at age 5, I was introduced into the world of weeding, tending the vegetables and flowers at my Grandmother’s side. I spent nearly some part of every summer living with her and this tradition continued until I was 18 years old. I bought my first home at 19 and as a house warming gift, my Grandmother brought me plants and garlic for my own garden, which I have continued to grow for the last 61 years
