Hi My name is William Schiffer. I was helping my Nephew work on the family tree and saw your note about the Suchma family in Valasske Klobouky. It appears that my great great grand father and mother were the same Antonin (Tony) Suchma 1814 - 1897 and Frantiska (Frances) Raskova 1820 - 1890. There Child John Suchma married Frances Blazik Suchma (both born in Valasske Klobouky) I have them having 8 children
Son John Suchma and wife Francis - lived in Cleveland OH, Children were Frank, Charles, Louis, Otillia and Beatrice.
Daughter Anna Scuchma Onderka and Husband John Onderka - Pittsburgh, Children Charles, Joseph, John, and Ella.
Son Rudolph Suchma and wife Frances Fiala Suchma - Pittsburgh, Children Lydia, Rudolph and Edward.
Daughter Helen Suchma Smetak and husband Mates Smetak - Children William and Jarmilla
Son Joseph Suchma and Wife ( I have no name her) I believe this is your branch of the tree. I always heard that Joe lived in southern California and had a date farm. My grandmother was his sister and they visited them in California sometime between 1910 and 1930 (a guess on my part).
Daughter Marie Suchma Kral and husband Joseph (My grand parents) - Pittsburgh, Children Joseph, Louis, Robert and Mildred (my mother)
Son Frank Suchma died at an early age never married.
Son Charles Suchma and wife Emma Pavlis Suchma - Indiana, Pittsburgh and Ohio. Children Charles, Donald and Mildred (named after my mom).
Son Antonin Suchma - Drowned in the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh when a young boy.
That is about all I have. I am assuming you are related to Joseph the date farmer? Where exactly was the date farm? My grandfather was a butcher.
