Surnames: Hrebec and Bokor (Hrbek and Bokr)
I am searching for any info on my Bohemian Great grandparents
Matej Hrebec (Hrbek) came from Prestice/Dolni Nesdice (NOZ). We believe he left his homeland about 1885-1886 arriving in New York Harbor and settled in St. Louis, Missouri.
His wife is Anna Bokr - Birthplace was Prestice, S. Kasov, Bohemia. Her birth date was written as 6/30/1860 instead of 6/30/1861. Hamburg Passenger Records show that Anna Herebek departed 14 Sept 1887 (booked in steerage) from her place of residence - Skasow, Bohemia and arrived in New York with her son, Josef, on 29 Sept 1887 at the age of 26 years aboard the steamboat, Polynesia.
Can you verify any of the above information since some of it states Matj and Anna arrived together and others that he came first and she followed later with their son, Josef.

thank you in advance!!
