I have notes from an old family tree that lists the Frank Jaros family as being from the town of Krjpisek Okrec Smole.
I believe this is the town on Pisek. Can anyone verify?

Well, Krjpisek Okrec Smole is a nonsence, but check the village Písecká Smoleč in Písek district. Lots of Jaroš in that area.

I would assume that your "Krjpisek Okrec Smole" should be "____ Kraj [=Region], Pisek Okres [=Pisek District], Smole. As another poster pointed out, there is a hamlet called Pisecka Smole; the Pisecka part is an adjective form of Pisek, so the place is the Smole near Pisek. (I think the name Smole is a form of the Czech word for tar or pitch, presumably produced there at some time by burning pine logs in a furnace.) It is 10 miles due east of the town of Pisek.
