Gotch family possibly in Illinois, Czech Republic, Hungary

Surnames: Gotch, Maras, Knutson, O'Leary
I am trying to find information and/or possible connections to the Gotch family. I have one name: SUSAN GOTCH.

She married GEORGE MARAS and moved to Swift County, Minnesota. Her children included CATHERINE MARAS KNUTSON CONKLING (1924 - 2004) and GEORGE M MARAS JR "JACK" (1916 - 2001).

After doing some initial research, I THINK the following could be true based on best matches:

SUSAN GOTCH may have been born in Hungary in 1885 and died in St Cloud, Benton, Minnesota, in 1965.
Her marriage to George Maras may have been on 29 Oct 1901 in Streator, La Salle, Illinois.

Her other possible children include the following (CATHERINE MARAS & GEORGE JR are included above):
John Steven (25 May 1904 in Illinois - 18 May 1972 New London, Kandiyohi, MN)
Albert
Rose
Leon D (about 1912 Illinois - about 1964) m. Inez _______
Laurette (about 1919 in Benson, Swift, MN - 2002) m. Joseph O'Leary
Robert Thomas (11 July 1922 Danvers, Swift, MN - 15 Nov 1970 Danvers, Swift, MN)
Evelyn

My father always thought this part of his family was of Czechoslovakian descent, but I have not seen any information on this.
Thanks~
