I'm researching my family tree and looking for the name HLADILEK they were said to have lived in Vesper, Wood Co WI and Nekoosa, Wood Co WI; All my aunts and uncles were born there and my grandfather had a farm in Vesper, WI about 80 acres.
How can I go about finding infomation on this, as I live in Texas? Both my grandparents are buried there in Vesper, I think at that cemetery by the church and their parents before them are near the front in the corner of the cemetery. If you can help at all It would be appreciated.
My grandparents are John Charles HLADILEK and Louise Belle FEMLING, both buried at St James Catholic Cemetary in Vesper (her parent may be buried in the same cemetery ). One died in 1979 the other in 1988; one IL the other NV.
My great grandparents are Joseph HLADILEK and Jenny VELIMEK both buried there also one died in 1975 the other in 1955 I believe it is said that three brothers came over from Czech, on a sailboat together in the 1800s some time. Joseph was suppose to be one and I believe his brother Charles A was another (died in WWII) and is buried in the same cemetery.
I don't know the other brother or if any parent came over. I also would like to know if they were all in WWII or just Charles.
