Dados in Whiting, Indiana

A branch of the Dado family settled in Whiting, Indiana (near Chicago). Trying to find the common ancestor. Much of the information initiates from a set of index cards maintained by my grandmother. A handwritten note gives addresses for Frank Dado (1429 Frishrutp, correctly spelled Fischrupp)[Primary Frank Dado], Andrew M. Dado (1625 Cleveland) (2nd Cousin)[Son of Martin P. Dado], Joe Dado (1318 Fred St)[Son of Martin P. Dado], and Mrs. F. Dado (1521 John St.)[Possibly Daughter-in-law of Primary Frank Dado] all of Whiting, Indiana.

Theresa, Frank and Martin Dado were siblings and the assumption is that their father would be Sam Dado's brother. Steve Dado is much older, and is not their father. Perhaps he's their uncle, and possibly another brother to Sam Dado.

Other associated names are Fr. Joseph B. Hajduch (Roman Catholic priest, indicated as a cousin, Amery, Wis., formerly of Whiting, Ind.), along with brothers Andrew Hiduke (Deputy Chief Probation Officer, Juvenile Court, Hammond, IN), Richard C. Hajduch, David A., Jerome J.[All grandsons of Theresa Dado Kovacik] On the reverse side of the card with Hajduch information (which ends in (over)) there is an address for Frank Zeller (crossed out). Handwritten on the remainder of the card are notations:

Brothers: Paul, Whiting (Two generations of Paul Hajduch does show up in searches)
John, Griffith (John Hajduch does show up in searches for Griffith, IN)
Frank, Slovakia
Ambrose, Slovakia

Sister: Mrs Anna Sulova, Slovakia

They are brothers and sister to Andrew J. Hajduch, Sr.
