I assume you realize that Anna Sadilek who married John Pavelka (your other message) was the real-life model for Willa Cather's My Antonia. She wrote a letter about her life reproduced in Simply Antonia by Dr. Barry Turner (a descendent), a book available from the Willa Cather folks in Red Cloud, Nebraska. My reading of her handwriting makes it out to be Mzizovice (haceks "little v's" on both z's). There is such a village by Ostredek (an exit on the main expressway south east from Prague just beyond the Sasava River.) See my comments under the Sadilek list.
