I am looking for information on Janousek's from Wisconsin. Here are the Janousek's I'm looking for. Any connection? I am from the Idlbek or here in the states Edlebeck family.
Franc(FrantiÅ¡ek) Janousek had the Roman catholic religion. He was born on 2nd December 1858 in BezdÄ›kov near Klatovy. When he was six, he left with his parents to
Chlistov near Klatovy. On 9th May 1882 he came arrive to New York on the ship Main. His sister Marie Johanna (born on 24th June 1865) came arrive with him. I suppose they left together to the town Reedsville, where lived their aunt Anna Koudelkova (mother of the first Czech bishop in USA Josef
Koudelka). According the stories Franc had the smithshop.\
Franc (Frantisek) Janousek could of been born on 2-12-1858 I have two birthdates.
Here is some additional info, not sure who came to US from this list:
born 08/02/1794 in Chlistov # 21
died 02/07/1860 in Chlistov
got married on 08/02/1819 in Novy Cestin
with Tekla Raitmajerova
born 24/09/1796 in Kolinec
died 11/03/1866 in Chlistov
they had a son Vojtech Janousek
born 20/10/1824 in Chlistov # 55
died 18/03/1897 in Chlistov # 55
Vojtech Janousek got married on 27/01/1857 in Bezdekov
with Frantiska Hosnedlova
born 18/03/1832 in Sluhov
died 21/05/1897 in Chlistov
Josef and Tekla Janousek had except Vojtech another son Tomas (born
27/07/1829) who got married on 12/10/1858 with Katerina Mullerova,
the widow after Idlbek from Klenova # 24 and together they had
Josefa born 23/02/1861
Josef born 05/04/1863
Antonin born 07/05/1865
Vaclav born 07/07/1868
I donÂ´t know anything about their lots but itÂ´s possible that they left to USA. Katerina Mullerova had from the first marriage with Ondrej Idlbek (died in 1857) children: Jiri, Tomas, Magdalena and Anna Idlbek. Tomas got the smithy in Klenova # 24 after his step-father Tomas Janousek.
Another son of Josef and Tekla - Matej Janousek (born 09/02/1837 in Chlistov) maybe also left to USA.
The older children of Vojtech and Frantiska (born Hosnedlova) were born in their motherÂ´s birthplace - Sluhov. And in Bezdekov where their great grandfrather worked for some time as a black-smith. The younger children were born in Chlistov where the family came back from Bezdekov.
The children were:
Josef born 21/08/1855 in Sluhov # 8
ItÂ´s possible that he left to USA.
Josefa born 07/07/1857 in Bezdekov # 24
died 01/11/1888 in Kristin # 19
married with Matej Edl from Kristin
Frantisek born 02/12/1858 in Bezdekov # 24

? she left in 1882 to USA
Vojtech born 21/01/1870 in Chlistov # 55

- the black-smith
his correspondence with his sibblings in USA hasnÂ´t been preserved
Anna born 30/10/1871 in Chlistov # 55
