Hi, Ruth Ann,
Edward Reiter was a witness at my great-grandparents' wedding on November 27, 1879. Their names were Charles Tichacek and Mary Sazama. I think Aneska, Edward's wife was Charles' sister. Their parents were Matijas and Anna Tichacek. We found records for Matijas where he spelled his name "Tikaick." So, I think we have the same great-great grandparents. Here's the information I have. Hope it helps!
1. MATIJAS (MATHIAS)1 TICHACEK was born 1816 in Bohemia, and died 1903. He married ANNA in Bohemia. She was born 1825 in Bohemia.
Notes for MATIJAS (MATHIAS) TICHACEK:
Matijas (born 1816) and Anna (born 1825) Tichacek had three children born in Bohemia: Mary (born 1849) Charles (born 1856), and Jakob (born in 1866).
Ships records show: Tichazeck, Math. 50, Austria; Baltic, 1 August 1867. (Bohemia sometimes referred to Austria---part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.) Is this the same person? He gives his age as 4 years older than Matijas.
His name is also spelled Matijas Tikaick on land records and his citizenship document.
The 1880 census lists his age as 64.

I haven't updated this information to include information I received from Mr. Tony Kondrys. This shows where Aneska (Czech for Agnes) came from in Bohemia:
By the census from 1869 of Usilov village was Karel (Charles)Tichacek born 2nd Nov 1856 in Usilov as the son of Matej (Mathias) Tichacek (*1816) peasant in Usilov # 29 and of Anna (*1825. His siblings were Johann Tichacek born 25th Jul 1851 in Usilov - before 1869 in USA, Agnes born 1859 and Jakob born 1865.
I'd be happy to hear any info you've found or to share any further information.
