Marek family in Osek

Classification: Lookup
Surnames: Marek

I am looking for any information regarding a Marek family that lived in Osek (Osseg) prior to and during the Second World War.

The family is as follows

Father: Wenzel Marek - a barber & train conductor
Mother: Wilhelmine Marek (maiden name unknown)
Son 1: Harry Marek b. 1918 - sometime after 1972 in France
Son 2: Waldemar b. 1921 - 1942
Daughter: Irmgard b. 1922 - present

There have been mentions that this family has connections to Dresden, but it is unclear if it is the mother's or father's family. Also, Wenzel's father Marek who was from the area of present Czech Rep. who died in 1914 and was married at the time to a young wife. (see attached)

If you know of this family or the names of the Lutheran churches in Osek, I would appreciate hearing from you. I am hoping to locate the grave of Waldemar in the local church cemetery, if he was indeed buried there.

Also, if the clothing that the couple are wearing can date the time period.

Thank you for your help.
