I went through my books and can't find anything directly related to the post I orginally made. However, I need more information from you that may solve a mystery in the Ciha line for both of us. My Joseph(Sr) "Chiha" born about 1830 in Praha, Bohemia. (that was the orignial spelling prior to the early 1900's.) If you are not from Illinois then you may not be aware that the October 1871 Great Chicago File distroyed all of it's public records to that point. I have a Joseph Ciha who had a son Joseph (Jr) and Albert, who had a son Albert, etc. My Ciha's are from the Joseph (Jr) line. I beleive that somehow through the Joseph Sr. our families are related.
If you are comfortable with emailing me it is:WLLLWIT@aol.com
What I need to know is the name of Jacks (now James) Father. I am unclear if Jacks is Albert's son or grandson.
