Chaloupka's in Iowa and Nebraska
I've recently come across information about one more branch of my family tree.If you have any information about the following people, please contact me at email@example.com.
John Chaloupka (1811-1906) and Catherine (Pirko) Chaloupka (1815-1895) immigrated to the US in 1855 with their children John (b. 1836), Frank (b. abt 1839), Joseph (b. 1841), Charles (b. 1843), Henry (b. abt 1845), Mary (b. 1847), Anna (b. 1851), George (Wesley)(b. 1857), and Francis (b. abt 1860).There was also possibly one other son - Anton (b. abt 1846).
John and Catherine settled and retired in Jones County, Iowa.
Their son John moved to Dbq, IA & became a tailor,
Frank moved to Wilber, NE & became a miller,
Joseph moved to Guthrie Cnty, IA & became a farmer,
Charles moved to Guthrie Cnty, IA & became a farmer,
Henry moved to Wilber, NE & became a farmer,
Mary married Albert Kunce & moved to Guthrie Cnty, IA,
Anna married Joseph Blizek & moved to Anamosa, IA,
George stayed in Jones County as a farmer, and
Frances married Joesph Kostechek & lived near
Anton shows up on an early census record with John and several of the other kids at the age of 14, but then disappears from the census records in that area.He may have moved to Wilber, NE with Frank and Henry, but his name is not mentioned in any of the reference materials I have as a brother of the the other 9.
