12. Franciscus Oravecz, born October 27, 1836 in Opatka, Slovakia1; died November 14, 1894 in Opatka, Slovakia2. He was the son of 24. Franciscus Oravecz and 25. Apollonia Gartsar. He married 13. Maria Kordovaner October 5, 1862 in Opatka, Slovakia3,4. She was the daughter of 26. Joannes Kordovaner and 27. Anna Horvath.

Notes for Franciscus Oravecz:
On Franciscus' baptismal record, there is a notation that he married Maria Kordovaner on October 5, 1862.
In July 1995, Dorothy (Rebar) Polenik and I visited Opatka and located the grave of Franciscus Oravecz and Maria Kordovaner. The cemetery was the older of two in town, and it had only recently been cleared of brush and made ready for more burials. I estimate that it had been untouched for about 40-50 years, and most graves were unmarked. The Oravecz-Kordovaner grave marker was cast iron, but we could not make out the dates, nor did we have the materials with us to make an etching. In our travels to all the ancestral villages in Slovakia, this was the only grave marker we found for any of our ancestors.
