Vladistok Schefshuga was born June 4, 1854. Where he was born is unknown. A search of the internet yields very few examples of the name, Vladistok. One is a Romanian Prince, another is a city in Russia. Most other links seem to be related to one of those. Family lore indicates the possibility of Poland, but that doesn't seem to fit the name. It could be based on an nickname given to him by friends, "The Polish King". Searching for Schefshuga yeilds nothing at all. No combination of spelling possibilities has found any of them in the census or immigration databases, either.

On September 25, 1878, he married Maria Trost . They lived in the Pittsburgh area and they had at least 12 known children: Agnes H (1893), Andrew (1894), Cecilia (1899), Charlotte (1833), Edward, Eleanora (1897), Frances, Frank, George, Mike, Rosa, and Stanislow (1883).

Vladistok died on July 18, 1930, at the age of 76.
