Hi Tammy,
Thanks for your response. I do have the registration of death for both, #1137 for Frank and #1405 for Barbora - neither show parents names. Also have obituaries from local papers and do know they are both buried in St. Adelbert's Cemetery in Casco. No sure exactly when they settled in Kewaunee Co. Have Land Grant Certificate #25,227 in the name of Franz Horazek dated January 3, 1860. The earliest census I can find them is 1870 under Wholashek. I also found them in the 1880 census under Woraeck, living with their son Albert. What I've been told is that Frank came to the country around 1848, settled land, then brought his family here (wife Barbora, sons Albert (b. 1841) and Frank (b. 1844) and daughter Anna (b. 1854? - mother Barbora would have been 51). I have naturlization documents for son Frank dated 2/9/1876 indicating he arrived in US through New York in July 1857. Most obituaries for family indicates 1857 arrival. Also haven't been able to find out much about daughter Anna. Have indications she may have married a Thomas (Wenzel) Blahnik and they had 9 sons and 1 daughter named Frances, who first married a Bunk and then later a John Adams. Son Albert's descendands are under the name of Worachek and son Frank's are under Vorachek - both have many spelling variations. My great-grandmother was son Frank's daughter Anna, who died in Pine County Minnesota in 1899. Pine County genealogical society was very helpful. Do you do research and how much do you charge? Or do you have any suggestions? I live in California, so Wisconsin is a bit of a distance from here.

Thanks for any help.

Janice
