I have traced my ancestrey back to first arrivals in the U.S. I would apppreciate any help in searching for any information on the following individuals. Informations shows they originated from Moravia. Believe all to be Catholic.
First: Bartholemew J. (Possibly Jerome) Zurovetz; Born between 1854 and 1860 (Unsure based on data what is the correct date); Immigrated to the U.S. in 1867/1868; Father was John Zurovetz; no information on mother.
Second: Bart has a brother named Frank Zurovetz born Nov 20, 1854. He would have also immigrated in 1867/1868.
Frank Zurovetz's headstone has the following writing on it..., "Frank, Zurovetz; NAR 20 LISTOPADU 1854, ZEM 5 UNORA 1939; ODPOCINUTI LEHKE DEJ JIM O PANE A SVETLO VECNE AT JIM SVITI".
Third: Agnes (Agness) Smajstrla, born Jul 1865; Immigrated to the U.S. between 1870 and 1882; Father's surname was Smajstrla; Mother's maiden name was Hrncir. She was Bart Zurovetz's wife. They married here in the U.S. in 1884.
