Hosna / Sevcik/ Janscek/ Blazek families

Posted: Tue, 10/18/2011 - 07:47

Seeking info on these families in Bohemia.
Josef Hosna b. 1879 Bohemia d. 1944 St. Louis parents Frantisek Hosna / Rose Blazek m Anna Sevcik (in Bohemia, 1904) b. 1878 Bohemia d. 1939 St. Louis children Anna b. 1905, Josef b. 1907 Ferdinand (Fred) b. 1919 in St. Louis
Josef came to St Louis 1907, Anna 1910, children 1921.

Anna Hosna b. 1880 (sister of Josef) came to St. Louis 1906, m Anthony Jancsek (father Martin) in 1907 at St. John Nepomuk Catholic church
children Anthony b 1904 (Austria?) Maria (Mamie) b. 1909 St. Louis
Info on marriage rec indicates her father as “Joannis” Hosna and location of Ounuz, Sedlesny, Bohemia or similar spelling.

Jancsek family seems to disappear after 1910 census, although family member recalls going to
Anna’s funeral sometime between 1939-1944 ‘a long way from St. Louis’

Any help appreciated!


Updating some info…
Anna Jancek died in 1945, Highland, Illinois

Birthplace for Anna & Josef (1905 & 1907) is Radimov, according to their info on immig. (passenger listing of ship) as well as location of nearest relative, given as their maternal grandmother, Sevcikova.
I’ve learned that this village is in Kraj of Jihocesky and would love advice on best way to proceed from here to get CZ info/records.

Birthplace of Josef (1879) per ship record is Cichov.
Anyone who has access to Brno and/or Moravian archives (the parishes needed aren’t yet online) please let me know! Thanks in advance!
