I have since learned a bit more: Ernest Lerch was born 1867 in Bohemia. Hemarried Anna Kleisner (b. 1871 in Bohemia) on 25 Aug 1889 in St Procopius Church, Chicago. They had 3 children--Anna, Rosalie, and George Wenceslaus Ernest Lerch died in 1900 in Chicago of Tuberculosis
Still searching for the parents and any siblings of both Ernest Lerch and Anna Kleisner of Chicago.
Ernest immigrated in 1886 according to the 1900 census. But what family did he come from?
I am the granddaughter of Ernest's son, George Wenceslaus Lerch.
