I would assume that your "Krjpisek Okrec Smole" should be "____ Kraj [=Region], Pisek Okres [=Pisek District], Smole. As another poster pointed out, there is a hamlet called Pisecka Smole; the Pisecka part is an adjective form of Pisek, so the place is the Smole near Pisek. (I think the name Smole is a form of the Czech word for tar or pitch, presumably produced there at some time by burning pine logs in a furnace.) It is 10 miles due east of the town of Pisek.
