I am researching the Becwar families that settled in Crawford County, Wisconin in about 1854. The ancestral line we are from is Matej Becwar (Becvar, various other spellings). Matej Becvar b. abt. 1817-26 was married to Catherine Weizribauer. They had Katherine born 1853 died at age 8 or 12, Baldy born 1856, nothing known about him and Frank b. 1859 who married Elizabeth Wall. (This is the my line). I have heard that Frank had other sisters that married and moved away and maybe a brother or two, no other leads. Cannot find Matej death year around 1880-1890. He is rumored that the family contacted tb on the ship over and many family members died from tb.???
Anyway, I think that Matej Becvar was a brother to Andrew Becvar married to Annie Zlabek, and another brother was Anton Becvar married to Adeline Brothert. There seems to be more census, birth, death information on the later two brothers than on my Matej family. What information do you have on these families. I do know the Swateks and Kavons do come into the family somewhere.
