Can any one help fill in the blanks?

Posted: 4 Jul 2005 12:08AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Suchan, Tornow, Svestka, Vigratz
Anton and Mary immigrated from Bohemia or Czechloslovakia per family history. Anna and Anton left a daughter Rose over there and she immigrated a few years later with her husband Charlie (alas, last name unknown). The family all lived within a small area on the near south side of Chicago. Apparently, Rose and Charlie traveled back to Europe several times as they had real estate and other business holdings up til the second World War.

Anton and Mary had 2 other children after they came to the US. Stanley Francis b 1894(known as Why) and Emily Mary b 1897. Why married Catherine Vigratz, her mother ran a Deli/Saloon at 19th and So Peoria, and Emily married Frank Svestka. Why was a machinist with MacLear and Emily retired from VL&A as a tailor/seamstress/dressmaker.

Unfortunately that is the sum total of my husband's knowledge of his grandparents and family. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
