I am trying to determine if there is a family relationship between the HLADILEK families of Wood County, Wis. and the LADICK families of Vesper and Sigel.
My g-g grandmother, Mary Helen (Ladick) TREUTEL was the daughter of Joseph Ladick and Mary MIKA, who came to America around 1882. Her father, Joseph (1846-1905) is buried at Holy Rosary Cemetery in Sigel, a short distance from a number of HLADILEK graves. Many Ladicks are buried near the Hladilek family plots at St. James Catholic Cemetery near Vesper.
I traveled to Wood County this summer and photographed most of the Hladilek graves if you need photos.
