Re: Frank Tichy, Cedar Rapids, IA
I went to the historical society here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa today and found an obituary for a FRANK TICHY who was born in Czech. February 17, 1877, he came to Cedar Rapids, Ia in 1908. He died Wed, April 29, 1953 at 3:15 in a care facility.
He was survived by wife Anna; 4 sons Charles, Lumir, Jerry, & Louis, he had two daughters Mrs. Wilmer W. MCDowell of Marion, Iowa (Hattie E.) and another daughter Miss Mary Tichy of Cedar Rapids.Twelve grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.Informant for death certificate was Charles.It does not list his parents names. He died of heart disease.
This does not sound like the same Frank Tichy, but it could be, you mentioned he was listed in a census with his children, do any of these children's names match what you have seen already?Our dates don't quite match either.
Before this time I went to the courthouse and could not find any marriage for Frank, while you suspect there were two.. I'll keep looking here in Cedar Rapids.I'll try to stay in [email protected]
