I do not find a Frantisek/Frank Listek born in 1867 in Vitkovice. No Listek's born that year.
I did find a Frantisek born of Marie Listek, unmarried woman, daughter of Frantisek Listek and Maria Jarolim, and Josef Gregorczyk on July 20, 1874. Josef Gregorczyk is son of Filipp Gregorczyk, a hornik (miner) and Frantiska Wojcik.
This Frantisek born 1874, died June 17, 1897.
Could he be the Frank you are looking for?
Church records can be found at matricky.archives.cz

No, I do not think so. The one I am looking for died later. I know they were there in the city because that was were the picture was taken...I do not know the year but it would be pre1917 because that is when the whole family emigrated to the US...are there any marriage records of a frank and Bertha Listek?

Do you have their arrival manifest and does it say they were from Vitkovice? What if they just happen to have a photo taken in Vitkovice being that it was a large town so obviously a professional photographer had a studio.
The photo has Mahren or Bohemia on it?

Listek, Frank 50 1867 1917 [M. Ostrau, Mahren on the Ellis Island arrival manifest.

Sistek, Anna 4 1900 1904
Sistek, Marie 1 1903 1904
Sistek, Anna Ledvicieck 20 1884 1904 Could these LISTEKs be connected to your ancestor.
