William Sedlacek is my great grandfather. Born in Belcice, CZ approx 1850. He was a kolar.
I have not been able to find that he ever entered the US. His four children, Mary, Barbara, Rose and Joseph all came to the US between 1892 to 1900.
Mary is shown on passenger lists as Marya Sedlacek entering the US in 1895. It also says that she was coming to Baltimore to her father's house at 1633 Barnes St. Baltimore MD.
I have found info in the 1895 and 1896 directories for a William Sedlacek at 1633 Barnes St. Baltimore MD. He is listed as a blacksmith in 95 and a wheelmaker in 96.
I think that this is my great grandfather who may have come to the US ahead of his children. I can't find verification where/when he entered the US. His wife was still home in Belcice CZ. Can't determine if he ever went back to CZ.
Sorry this is so long. Appreciate any help.
