Thomas Novachek (Novacek, Novacheck) 1858-1923
I am looking for information or family connections with regard to my great-grandfather: Thomas Novachek, Born 28 Feb 1858, in Trebon, Bohemia, Austria (Czech Republic now), Died 02 Jan 1923, in Hillsboro Township, Vernon County, Wisconsin. Not sure if surname in Bohemia was Novachek or Novacek. So far Novacek seems more likely. He came to Wisconsin with his wife, Mary Rynes Novachek, abt 1889. I do not know if any other relatives from Bohemia came with them at the time, before or after.
His children were Thomas Novachek, Jr., Mary Novachek-Hesik, Rose Clara Novachek (Onsager), Helen Ann Novachek (Carroll), Joseph James Novachek (my Grandfather), Edward Novachek, Alfred J. Novachek, and Albert James Novachek.
In addition to contact information, I am particularly interested in finding out if anyone has information about his parents or siblings in Bohemia.
