|Iam searching for ancestors from Bohemia. I would like information on the Pekarek, Kusey, Kalous, Cervena, Zidek (Sedek), Novak, and Yanda families. |
John Pekarek was born Dec. 24, 1819 and married Mary Kusey (born in 1823). They both were born in Bohemia and immigrated to Iowa
and had a son Vincent on Aug. 10, 1861.
John Kalous was born in 1833 in Bohemia and married Anna Cervena born in 1838 in Kastelsi, Bohemia. They were married on Jan. 10, 1861 in Bohemia. They had a daughter Fannie born Nov. 23, 1866 in
Bohemia, and immigrated to Iowa sometime after that.
Frantisek (Frank) Zidek (Sedek)was born in Bohemia on June 19, 1816, and Alzbeta (Elizabeth) Novak was born on Dec. 24, 1822.
They had three sons and a daughter (Joseph, Frank, John, and Anna) in Bohemia, and came to America on Sep. 10, 1855. They sailed from Bremen, Germany and Port of Entry was New Orleans.
Three more sons were born after they immigrated to Iowa and settled near Oxford Junction, Ia. (Antone, James, and Charles).
The only information I have on Catharine Yanda is that she was born in Bohemia in 1851.
