I don't think it's the same Joseph. However, my Joseph (Grandfather) was born 6 Apr 1880 in Czechoslovokia - city unknown; married Anna Beran (b-14 Aug 1892 in Bohemia-city unknown). Both died in Nebraska City, Otoe County, Nebraska. Joseph passed 23 Sep 1942 and Anna 7 Oct 1931.
My Father's cousin, Anna Berka, lives in Omaha and may have more information. I'll see if I can contact her and see what records, letters, etc., she may have. There's a large Jezek, Beran, Berka family contingent in the Omaha area.
Thanks for your reply.
