Surnames: PFEIL, BOCK
I am looking for any one who has some connection to the names above. Specifically, I am looking for a Joseph Pfeil and a Bertha Bock. Joseph was born 1859, in Sorghof, Bohemia and Bertha was born 1861 in Brand, Bohemia. They immigrated from Austria to Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Re: Maternal Grandparents - Pfeil in Milwaukee's German newspapers

Was there a Joseph Sr. (& Jr.) in your Pfeil family? There was a Joseph Pfeil Sr. who died in Milwaukee in 1923. His family placed notices in the local German language newspapers. But I don't see an entry for a Bertha Bock Pfeil in the index. There are about 100 occurrences of Pfeil indexed in the ongoing effort.

"Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).

Josef Kroha legitimated Pfeil born 30th Jan 1859 in Sorghof 10. Bertha Bock born 8th Apr 1861 in Brand 63.
Both towns are the part of parish Brand now Milire in western Bohemia near Tachov town.

All the best.
