I know very little about my Pekarek ancestors. My ggg-grandfathers name was John J. Pekarek. His daughter (my gg-grandmother) was Elizabeth Pekarek. Elizabeth was born in Austria in 1840. She married Prokop Prchal and they came to the United States in approx. 1869. They lived in New York City. Elizabeth died in 1907. They had three children, Maria, Edward William, and Augusta.
