I'm searching for family members near these two towns. From the current maps of the area, the towns are right next to each other.
I would like to know Frnka and Sladovnik ancestors from 1850 back as far as possible.
I know that Rozena Sladovnik(ova) was born 15 JUN 1842 in House #274, Roznov, Moravia, Austria from family records. I don't know much else about her, other than she died 30 MAY 1870 in House #274, Roznov, Austria.
Rozena married Florien Frnka Sr. Florien was born 16 MAY 1846 in House #48, Tylovice, Moravia, Austria. He died 21 MAR 1900 in Vox Populi, Texas. I know a little about Florien, but I would like to know more about his parents.
Florien's parents are Josef Frnka and Anna Kosarek. Josef was born on 7 MAR 1822 in Roznov, but I do not know where. I know he married Anna Kosarek, who was from Tylovice, Moravia. She was born 4 APR 1812. Josef died in Frelsburg, Texas on 10 Apr 1902 and Anna died in Roznov, Moravia on 10 Mar 1863.
I would love to more about Josef's family, the Sladovniks, and the Kosarek line. All the ancestors from the Czech Republic are nearly impossible to trace it seems. I know that Frnka's had money when they came to the US because they helped found the town of Nada, Texas. Florien started the general store and the post office there, and later his son Jan Jindrich by second wife Anna Kyncak helped run the town and the SPJST organization in that area.
Anyone who has information on this family from about 1850 back would be an amazing help to me! And anyone who is related and would like to share information, I have quite an extensive tree and would be glad to chat.
