Hello,
Different variants of this name of village there are several in Bohemia. Exactly Okrouhlé (alternative old name Okrouhlí) is part of the village Svatojanský Újezd, the district Jičín. Parish is in Lázně Bělohrad. But that's not it.
But almost at 99%, I would say that it can be Okrouhlá near town Milevsko. From nearby village Opařany were Bartůněk family as well and from Okrouhlá also family Boreš, what emigrated to the United States in the 19th century too. It is a village situated 4 km south of Milevsko, the district Pisek, South Bohemian Region.
Finally, after quite a long search for the right village, I found in the parish registers, as follows:

Bartunek family went to Cleveland, lived in Cuyahoga, Ohio - is that right? And you know that it is possible to find at www.mundia.com a family pedigree of Bartunek - added by “mgbergstr” nickname?
