From what document did you get a precise date of birth? That document did not contain her place of birth?

I have her death certificate. So the date comes from there and is signed by a son. I think she may have come from the same area as her husband. His name was Stefan Meskan and he was from Munice (Munitz in Germany.) His birth info follows. The death certificate (from America) states that her father was Martin Sladek and her mother was Katharina Vondersak. Both surnames are present in Munice, bit I cannot find the Veronika, Martin or Katherina in any record.

Štěpán Meskan born to Vitek Meskan and Johanna Anna Jivilia German name for Munice was Munitz. Parish Registers Collection of South Bohemia | Capital of par.: Zahájí | Book: 4 (B 1822-1851) | Image: http://digi.ceskearchivy.cz/en/8696/75

If Veronika and Martin were married in " old country" than they could have been from same village or one of them from within 10 miles radius.

It looks that Veronika was born in Plástovice, I have found a marriage record of Štěpán Meškán and Veronika:

and a birth record of Veronika:

Be aware of multiple surnames (or change of surname) frequently used in this area in South Bohemia. E.g., Veronika's father is Martin Ondrášek alias Sládek. People very often changed their surname according to the homestead where they started to live. You need land books together with parish records for correct genealogy research. Maybe you can contact Alois Sassmann, he knows pretty much about families and villages in your area:
