Surnames: Kroha
My Dad was Lawrence Kroha, his father John Joseph Kroha also from Milwaukee. His father was a butcher in Milwaukee and his grandmother mother was Margaret Hagner. I have her holy card which lists her life span as 1856-1940, My brother and family visited a small city in the Chech Republic which is supposed to be the home of the Krohas. We were always told that they were gamekeepers for the Austro Hungarian Royal family. and that they came to America to avoid conscription under Bismark.

I am just getting into this geneolgy search and find it fascinating. In doins do I am amazed at the number of Kroha's in the US

If they worked for the Austro-Hungarian royals, they did not have to fear conscription by Bismarck.

On the other hand, the draft was mandatory since the mid 1850s, therefore there was no escape from it for able-bodied young men in Austro-Hungary either.

Happy to hear from you.
My father was Lawrence Joseph Kroha, born in Milwaukee in 1902. His father was John Joseph Kroha, also born in Milwaukee, They relocated to Detroit in the 1920's.

You have also been in contact with Paul Dogbronski who has done extensive Kroha research. He has sent me his findings. My brother, John Kroha, is currently traveling in Czechoslovakia and thinks he will find the family home.

Where do you live? I am in Danville, CA as is my brother, Bob.
Let's correspond.

There are about 40 Kroha entries listed in the collection: "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items", covering 1844-1950. There are entries for a Joseph Kroha in 1908, 1915, 1940. There's also a wedding anniversary event noted in the German papers for a Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Kroha in 1910.

My grandmother (Rose Kroha) was the youngest of the Kroha children / Joseph & Hegner.
My Uncle Thomas Rainer still has quite a bit of infor on the family in this country.

One brother moved to Tacoma (railroad), another to Detroit, another to Jacksonville.

He also has a large family picture hanging in his house. Oddly enough my father, John Rainer looked very much like his grandfather.
