Hi,

Is there anyone local who would be willing to photograph 2 graves in Howells Nebraska for me?
St John Nepomucene Cemetery, Howells, Nebraska
Row 8 east to west

Frank Stanek Marie Stanek
1864 - 1933 1868 - 1944

Also, does anyone know if records exist for this church? I am interested in the following family--I would like to know the place of origin in Bohemia:

Frank Stanek 37 born August 1864 Bohemia, parents born Bohemia, married 11 years, came to US in 1890
Mary Stanek 32 born born November 1867 Bohemia, married 11 years, 5 children, all living, came to US in 1890
Frank Stanek 12 born May 1888 Bohemia
Mary Stanek 9 born August 1890 United States (Bohemia crossed out)
Joseph Stanek 7 born August 1892 Nebraska
Fanny Stanek 6 born February 1894 Nebraska
Agnes Stanek 5 born January 1895 Nebraska

Source Citation: Year: 1900; Census Place: Monterey, Cuming, Nebraska; Roll: T623 920; Page: 3B; Enumeration District: 63.

The family is living in Colfax County in 1910. I have the death certificates for Marie and Frank Stanek and an exact place of birth is not given (just country of birth, Bohemia)

Thanks,
Laurel in Maryland

I have a Mrs J. Stanek listed as a sister living in Nebraska in 1964. She was the sister of Marie Hudec born in Hroznice, Czech. Marie was married to James [Vaclav] Mastalier [Mastalir]from Kacov Czech. This was listed on the obituary for Marie Mastolier who died in Los Angeles CA. Mar 1964. (my grandmother)They were in Howell, Colfax County, Nebraska where there son Charles James Mastolier was born Sep 1902. Could there be a connection? Will share my information. Now living in Phonix, AZ

Hi Jimmie,

I have just begun this genealogy so I don't know much about the family. I do have a Veronika Herdec as the wife of Jaroslav [Jerry] Stanek [brother to Frank Stanek]. They lived in Thurston County Nebraska:
1930 United States Federal Census
Name: Jerry Stanek
Home in 1930: Dawes, Thurston, Nebraska
Age: 50
Estimated birth year: abt 1880
Birthplace: Czechoslovakia

Source Citation: Year: 1930; Census Place: Dawes, Thurston, Nebraska; Roll: 1294; Page: 3B; Enumeration District: 5; Image: 589.0.

Veronika Stanek died May 1977 in Burt County, Nebraska

I have just contacted a Czech Genealogy Company to do some resarch for me--I will let you know how it turns out. I will try and get a few later obituaries and see if we can confirm the connection.

I have just finished placing two messages on the Praha message board. We spent a week in Salt Lake City at the LDS Family History Center and found no records of my grandmother there. I did contact a lady from Bohemia that did help steer me in the right direction. She stated that they do not have many records of that area due to there destruction during the wars. I was given a form letter to find a researcher in the Czech. Republic. I also had good luck with another lady researcher in Praha. If you contact me direct I will give you her email address if you like. I have been researching my line since the inception of the internet, more than 20 years now. j_powell@qwest.net. It is interesting that you say Veronika died in Burt County as the Stanek that I am looking for is listed as living in Lyon, Burt County, Nebraska in 1964. The town only has 600 people and this could very well be Marie's sister. The Orbit lists her as a "Mrs. J. Stanek" maybe a Mrs. Jerry Stanek? Jim Powell

I don't think he is a direct relation--he could be a cousin.
