Dear Cynthia:

Reviewing my previous email, I note that I provided you with all the information that I have about the Fischers in Hochstetno. I do know as a fact that neither Rozalia's father nor mother (Stefan Fischer Rozalia Korenics) were born or married in Hochstetno. I checked the Hochstetno parish records and the records of the nearby neighboring parishes and could not find anything further on either the Fischer or the Korenics family. It would appear that they moved to Hochstetno from some other area prior to 23 June 1855 when their daughter Rozalia was born. This is unusual, as people did not move very often back then. I have traced other branches of my family in Hochstetno going back to the 1600's.

One possibility is that Stefan Fischer was in the military and was transferred with his wife to the Hochstetno area. When time permits, I will check the military records, if any, for Stefan. This is a shot in the dark.

Rozalia Fischer married Jan Illy on 11 June 1876. Together they had three children, one of which is my maternal grandfather, Franz Jozef Illy. On my maternal grandfathers side I have information going back to 1526.

If you can tie into Jan Illy, I have tons of information. But unfortunately, the Fischers are still a mystery to me.

One final note, today Hochstetno is called Vysoka pri Morave. The town has a history going back to the 1200's. Prior to being called Hochstetno, it was called Hochstadt (German) and Magasfalu (Hungarian). The names all refer to the fact that the town is supposedly on high ground. But, when I visited Hochstetno, it appeared to be very flat. It is on the banks of the Morave River.
