I was wondering if anyone know's of a Caska from Bohemia, Austria, My Great Grandfather was Thomas Caska and was born 1841 and came to the USA in the mid 1800's and he married a woman named Mary, I do not know her last name. Caska was on the Naturalization papers 1863 and Thomas spelled his name Keske on his census papers, but it was Caska on the Naturalization card. Can anyone out there help me,
Thank you, can email me.

Hello, Did you try go to
go to this then click on Wisconsin state, then you can go to Iowa county where Thomas Keska and Mary resided. Go under look-ups and you will see marriage records. E-mail this contact to see if there was a marriage record of Thomas and Mary.

The Keska's of Iowa County lived in the Town of Pulaski, There was a John and Margaret from which a daughter Monica B. was born who had a brother Delbert. These last two are deceased and a end-of-line for this branch of Keska as neither married. Monica was a school teacher for many years.

To start again - I believ it started from a family of Thomas and Mary Keska which from there was John. If you check Find a Grave for Keska's in the ST. Joseph Cemetery in Avoca, Iowa County, WI who will find several and they are all related - just have to determine generations by dates
But no Keska's reside in the Avoca or Town of Pulaski today (Nov 2014)

There is also a Thomas keska and wife buried in the St. John's Cemetery in nearby (6 miles west of Avoca) in Grant County, WI but I am not sure if they are related.
