I have some information...quite by accident. I'm researching the history of my home that was built in 1921 in St Petersburg, FL. It appears that the home was built by William J & Nettie Liska Cermak during that year. I found some info in a local historical document. Here is what I know:
Born in Cleveland, Oh, the son of Matthew and Teresa Dostal Cermak. The latter came to the US from Czecho-Slovakia, and became a naturlized American citizen soon after. Prior to coming to Pinellas County, Mr Cermak was in the retail shoe business with his father. In the fall of 1919 he came to St Petersburg and was for two years a salesman, later forming the real estate firm of Bouon and Cermak, being associated with F. P. Bouton. Mr. Cermak was a member of the Jungle Country Club, the Chamber of Commerce, the YMCA and the Civitan Club. He was one of the leading amateur golfers of St Petersburg in 1928. Mr. Cermak was married in Cleveland to Nettie L. Liska. He had three children, Robert, Elizabeth and Margaret.
I'd love to know if you have any other info about the family. It appears that they owned my house from 1921-1935. Thanks for your help.
