I am researching Martin Pekarek. He was born on Feb 1851 in Bohemia and died 29 Dec 1924 in Chicago, Illinios. He married Katherina Petras in 1876 who was from Corcovec, Bohemia. They immigrated to the US in 1887 or 1888 with 4 children, Martin (26 Dec 1877 - 12 Jan 1932), Charlie, (b Jun 1882), James, (b May 1885), and Frank (b Jun 1887). They had 4 more children in Chicago, Annie (b Nov 1888), Bessie, (b Jan 1892), Robert, (b Mar 1894), and Edward, (b Apr 1896).

I can probably help because my Pekarek's were
from Cicero and I think I have a list of
obituaries of Pekareks that I will look into.
However, I won't have time to research until
Sunday. Wendy

Susie,

There is or at least was a Bohemian Newspaper that was written for the large population of Bohemians that settled in the Chicago/Cicero area. The newspaper printed obituaries and most Bohemians used this newspaper rather that the Chicago Tribune to post information of deaths. You can look the information up for free at the Chicago Library but I found a man who is willing to do a look up for $4.00. It's not worth the gas to go to Chicago for $4.00 not to mention the time involved. I think he sent me a list of Pekarek names once and I'll have to look harder for it this weekend. Please feel free to e-mail me at camwilde@netscape.net and we can communicate easier. I am from Illinois and my father was a Cicero Bohemian, so I am familiar with the area. Wendy Wilde
