Trying to find any information on my great grandparents, Adam J. Kreuzer and Marianna Forster Kreuzer. They lived in Tachau, Bohemia. Adam may have been born in Pilsen. Adam's DOB is Feb.14,1848 and Marianna Forster was born March 3, 1852. They came from Austria-Hungary to the United States between 1896-99,but suspect 1898. They originally settled in Wilkes Barre,Pennsylvania and later moved to the rural community of Mountain Top,Pa. They had the following children: Frank(Franz) Josef, Adam, Elizabeth, Margaret, Margaret, and Mary. Adam owned a mica mine which was used for glass making, and the Russian government may have later possessed. Adam became a farm owner, but was also a carpenter.

It is only one way to know a right answer: to look through the indexes of parish registers of Tachov and Plzen town. The registers are in archiv in Plzen.

The Kreuzer family owned mica mines in Germany. The mica was used to make glass for windows, which was a luxury then.
