As far as Wituschek in Austria Hungary or the USA I know very little. I am related through my AMENT WITUSCHEK lines in Filipovo. I am also in contact with cousins Mathiaus and Greta Wituschek of Germany.http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com
Stefan Wituschek probably b: 11 APR 1866 in Kula, d.1 OCT 1938 in Milwaukee, WI. left Filipowa and eventually moved to 592 12th ST. Milwaukee, WI Followed by his wife Magdalena Wituschek on Aug 13, 1910 arrived Ellis Island Sep 01, 1910 (brother in Filipowa Johann AWAUK? AMENT?) with there 5 children:
2)Gyorgy b.23 Apr 1897 Fillipowa d. 29 Oct 1989 lived Greenfield, Milwaukee, WI. (George)
3)Jozsef b. 1896
4)Katarina b. 1900
5)Stefan b. 1907
6)Johann WITUSCHEK b: 6 SEP 1891
Stefan probably came with a Son to Milwaukee who may had took residence in Milwaukee or Chicago. Johann WITUSCHEK b: 6 SEP 1891 in Filipowa However its not known what happened to the family George seems to be the only one that remained in the Milwaukee area. I could not find any census records for the family. Did they return to Filipowa? Or spread out in the USA.
He was the son of Father: Stefan WITUSCHEK b: 14 JUN 1837 in Filipowa Mother: Anna KREWENKA b: 5 JAN 1840 in Filipowa
George possibly had a gr. grand daughters Rita Kay and Kathy Wituschek (m.Joseph George Stichart) who were beauty pageant contestants. Also possibly had gr. grandsons Thomas Andrew Wituschek and George Paul Wituschek. A Elizabeth lived in Wisconsin Born: 1897 Died: 1980
Other Wituschek lived in Doylestown, Pennsylvania and in other states. but we don't know if they were from the Fillipowa clan.
Vitusek, Stefan a farmer, b. abt. 1845 lived Essegg, Croatia m. Margarcia b. 1852 possibly arrived Ellis Island Aug 30, 1910 had sailed from Bremen. They were coming to see there Son in law Earl or Carl SCHWARTZ in Grackonridge? Breckenridge? Allegeny, PA They had been born in Ivanovac,? Ivanovci?, (Lvastovic?, Lvastovac?, Svastovac?) Croatia. Race was German and the person in the old country was there son George Vitusek of 88 Rosiongaise, Esseg, Croatia There names however were crossed out?
Also Terezija Vituschek b. 1887 arrived from Filipovo at Ellis Island Oct 01, 1907 She was going to see here uncle in York? N.York?
These two families seem to be from the Wituschek's of Mahern, Moravia > Filipowa > USA German Donauschwaben group.
Whituschek, Wituscheck Witaschek, other spelling variations are Vitusek, Vituschek, Witaschuk Witeczuk, Witagcuk, Witajczuk, Wityczuk Witusk
Esseg = Osijek, Osek, Eszek,
Filipowa = Filipovo, Bački Gračac
Does anyone have information on these families?
