I too have BENDA's in my line from Heralec near Havlicuv Brod Bohemia.
I should be receiving a packet of info from the Czech Archives any day with regards to my G-Grandfather Peter BENDA's family. He was born Jan 8,1880 and came to America in 1904. As soon as I receive it I will post all the info. I hope that the information confirms the family story that he had 7 brothers and sisters. Some of which are also believed to have come to America.
