I am looking for information about my great-grandfather, Andrew Joseph NEMEC b. 8/7/1887 in Brekov, Czech. and married Anna (Annie) KEBLISH or KEBLESH who was also of Czech descent.
From what I've been told, Andrew immigrated to the US around 1909 or 1910 with his brother(s)? I believe to the Pittsburgh, PA area where he may have played minor league baseball.He married Anna about 1923.She may have been born in PA, Wisconsin or Ohio.
Eventually, Andrew and Anna moved to Puyallup, Washington and started a raspberry farm.My grandpa, Andrew Francis NEMEC was born there.
On his SSN application his father is listed as Mike NEMIC and mother as Anna VALOVCIK.
He died 4/4/1971 in Tacoma, Washington just a couple years before I was born.
I am very proud of my Czech heritage but having a heck of a time finding any info!Thanks for the help!
