I’m looking for information on John Wastark (could be Wustarck or Wostarek), born approximately 1820 in Bohemia, married to Franciska born around 1823 in Bohemia. They immigrated to the US (Galveston, Texas) in 1871 with 4 children, John born February 8, 1852, Frank “Franz” born December 31, 1862 (or 1861 we found records with both dates, not sure which is accurate), Joseph “Joe” born February 14, 1866, and Maria born 1870. Early 1900 US Census documents lead us to believe that they had 5 other children that did not immigrate with them. We don’t know the names, birth dates, or death dates for those children. Wastark is the spelling of the surname on the immigration records, but we have also found US records with the spelling of Wustarck. The current spelling of the family name is Wostarek.
Any assistance or information would be greatly appreciated.
