Looking for family information on Ben Francl family enumerated in the 1920 US Census, Langlade County, town of Ackley as:
FRANCL, Ben, age 32, born IL, parents born Bohemia
Antonette, wife, age 28, immgrated 1906, born Bohemia Chidren: Beautries? age 6, Lillian age 3 7/12, James age 2/12

The above is Antonette Kubalek, aka Antonie, aka Tina Kubalek. Her family settled in Tama and Grunday County, Iowa after immigrating in 1905 or 1906 from Velka Ves, Bohemia. I have information on the Kubalek family to share in exchange for information on her Francl family.

Surnames: Kubalek, Hrstka
I was raised in Tama, Iowa but now live in Oregon. I am related to a Kubalek family through marriage only. I have an Emma Kubalek, probably born around 1900. Emma married Edward Hrstka. Their daughter, Lucille Emma Hrstka, is my brother's mother in law. Lucille lived in Belle Plaine or Luzerne, Iowa which is very close to Tama. Also, I dated a Marion Kubalek from Tama. His mother was Gladys and I think his father's name was Joe. Marion and wife Linda had 4 children, probably all still living. I am looking for Emma Kubalek's parents. Cheryl

There are a couple Kubalek families that lived around the Toledo and Clutier areas. I have never been able to connect them as related. However, I found the below on-line about your Emma.

Emma Hrstka

A funeral liturgy for Emma R. Hrstka, 98, of Tama, was held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2000, from St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Tama. The Rev. Keith Birch officiated. Interment was at Holy Trinity Cemetery, rural Toledo. She died Sunday, Dec. 17, 2000, at Sunny Hill Care Center in Tama of natural causes.

Emma Hrstka was born Dec. 24, 1901 in Czechoslovakia, the daughter of Otto Kubalek. She received her education near her home. In 1921 she came to the United States. On Jan. 4, 1922, at Holy Trinity she was united in marriage to Edward Hrstka of Elberon. The couple farmed near York Township until 1940 when they moved to Vining, IA, where they lived for 19 years. In 1959 they moved to Tama.

She was a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church and CCW.

Preceding her in death were her husband, Edward in 1966, two sons, Arthur and Paul; a grandson, K.C.; two great-granddaughters, Tara and Jennifer; two sons-in-law, Emil Yilek in 1999 and Robert O’Connor in 1991.

Surviving are five daughters, Helen Herink (and husband, Ludwig) of Tama, Mildred Benda (and husband, Milo) of Traer, Lucille Yilek of Belle Plaine, Eva Kasal (and husband,Kenneth) of Chelsea, and Martha O’Connor of Tama; three half sisters, Blanche Messinger of Tama, Rose Musgraves of Jackson, Mo., and Mildred Schmidt of Titonka, Ia.; 23 grandchildren; 46 great-grandchildren; and 15 great-great-grandchildren.

Hand Funeral Home-Tama-Toledo was in charge of arrangements. [Traer Star-Clipper; 21 December 2000]
