Mary.....Thank you for the response.
The people you mentioned are related to my wife's side of the family. John Sr. is her g-grandfather.

Something I need to clarify since the post. Jan Potmesil and his wife Rosa Sixta immigrated to the US about 1882. His father is Jan Potmesil, who married Anna Holanova. Jan and Rosa had a son John in 1870. When they got to the US, to differentiate the two, the son John became John Jr. and Jan was frequently referred to as John Sr.

The land they homesteaded in Box Butte County is still in the family.

The people I need some information on are John Sr's. parents, Jan and Anna (Holanova) Potmesil. I have been searching the Prague Archives, but without success. Jan and Anna did not immigrate to the US. At this point, I do not know if John Sr. had any siblings or if Jan had any brothers.

The location in the Czech Republic is perfect.

Thank you and I'll post again if I find anything.
