Searching ancestors of Frantisek (Frank) Vasek son of Rose Vasek,father unknown.He has his grandfather's name.Rose was not married.According to the 1900 census in Fayette County, Texas she came to America with her son in 1882.She later married Josef BartoÂš in Texas about 1890.At the time of the census she and Josef were living with her son Frank and his wife Hermina Konecny who had been married in 1899 in Fayette County,Texas.At this time they were living in Ammannsville.
Frank and Hermina had many children,my grandmother Frantisek
(Frances Rose)Vasek was one.She never knew anything about Franks father,it was not talked about in the family but she had always wanted to know.Have no idea where they came from but the census shows Bohemia and my grandmother said Bohemia or Moravia.Would like to know more about Frank and Rose's family if possible.I know it is probably like looking for Smith or Brown in America but I am hoping someone might have
an ancestor that "went to America" unmarried and with a son and maybe wondered what happened to them.Frank was born June 1879 and Hermina was born September 1878.Rose in February 1852.
I am also searching the Konecny name.Mary Konecny was Vinzenz Konecny's wife.I don't know her maiden name.She and Vinzenz also lived in Fayette County, Texas.They had a farm there and property the county said was worth $3400.00 when Vinzenz died (a lot of money in 1918!).In the 1900 census Vinzenz was apparently not living with his wife.She is listed as head of household and living with her son Karel (Charles) and daughter Julko (Julie). I haven't found out yet where her husband was. The census says she had been married 30yrs and was 51 yrs old.She came to America in 1887 from Bohemia so she and Vinzenz were married and their children were born there.She had 13 children,6 were living at the time of the census in 1900. She was born in Zari (June or Sept?) 1844 or 1848,Vinzenz was born in Brezen (March?) 1839.Would like to know her maiden name and actual date of birth.Any infor appreciated.Maybe the family who stayed in Europe would like to know what became of the brothers and sisters who went to America.Mary died in 1914 and Vinzenz died in 1918,both in Fayette County, Texas.
