Cimmel or Ciml in Cleveland

My great great grandmother was named Eva Ciml. She came to Cleveland Ohio around 1881 from Bohemia with her daughter Marie. The family story has always been that Marie was illegitimate.

I knew for a long time that Eva Ciml (Cimmel) married a man named Joseph Kvetensky. I recently had access to census records and discovered that in 1900 there was a family of Cimls (father Ignac, mother Marie, daughters Sarah, Lillian, Anna, Rose, Veronika) living next door to Joseph Kvetensky at 126 Hamlet Ave. Cleveland. I deduce that the odds of this being a coincidence are astronomically small. The name Cimmel/Ciml is not very common. I am sure that Ignac is a relative of my GG Grandmother Eva's, probably her brother (age difference is 4 years). The daughters of Ignac and Marie ended up marrying a Fred Siekemeyer (Rose), Josef Klima (Veronika), Anton Viton (Lillian), don't know about Sarah, and I think Anna became a nun.

I'd appreciate any information anyone has on my Cimmels.
