I'm trying to find the connection between the Popelka's and the Micksch's.
both families ended up in wisconsin by at least the 1920s.
Emile Popelka, son of Stephen and Minnie? Popelka is listed in the census as a cousin.
Other Popelka families in the same area are Wenzel and his kids: emma, james, frank(married to frances, Adolph(maried to Hilda), and Lizzie.the kids were all born in the late 1800s.
The other family is Anton and Teresa Popelka, their kids were: Anton(married to mary), Charles(married to sophie), adolph, james, joseph, mary, and amanda.Anton(married to Teresa) also apparenly had a widower brother named Frank who came to live with them for a while.
The Popelka's are also related to the Supitas of Bohemia.Frank Popelka was married to Mary Kriskova, had a daughter Mary who married Joseph Supita.The supita's came to wisconsin at the turn of the century and are also some way realted to the Micksch's
