Classification: Query
Surnames: Jindra, Wesely, Wesley, David
My great grandfather is Antone Wesely. His son, Joseph, married Anna Jindra. His daughter, Antonia, married John Jindra. The parents of these John and Anna Jindra are Vaculav (spelling?) Jindra and Katrina Sachl. Katrina came to Montgomery, Minnesota in the late 1800's. According in an obituary she married Jacob David as follows:Mrs. Katherine David.
Mrs. Katherine David of whose death mention was made last week died suddenly on Wednesday afternoon April 15th. at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Jos. Wesely in Waterville.

She had been visiting her daughter Mrs. Wesely at Waterville, and apparently was in good health. The family was away from the house at the time and on their return found her dead on the doorstep. Heart failure was the unmediate(sic) cause of her death. The deceased whose maiden name was Katherine Sache, was born in Levine, Bohemia, on Nov. 1st. 1841, she was married to Wencel Jindra who died 31 years ago. After her husbands death she came to this country settled on a farm in this township. In the spring of 1882 she married Jacob David who preceded her to the grave 8 years ago. She is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Jos. Wesely, of Waterville, Mrs. Jacob Kaisersatt of Lonsdale and three sons, John Jindra of this city, Frank Jindra of Rice county and Jacob David of Farmington.

The remains were brought here from Waterville on last Thursday to the home of her son, John Jindra and the funeral services held from the Catholic church in this city on Good Friday afternoon. Rev. E. Polasek officiating, her remains laid to rest in the family lot in Calvary cemetery.

The Messenger joins with the many friends of the deceased in extending sympathy to her relatives.

I am working on the Wesely ancestry. Note the two versions of Wesely/Wesley that have come into use in our family branches. I am thinking that Antone Wesely came from Michelsdorf Bohemia. I do not have documentation of that, however, many of the neighbors in this Waterville, MN, community came from that town.
Any information that you may have would be appreciated.
Thanks
