I am still researching my grandfather. My aunt sent me a newspaper clipping about his mother writing to the Calhoun County Clerk's office in Battle Creek, Michigan from Czechoslovakia saying she hadn't heard from her son since 1918. She said he was known as "Adolph Pavlik in his home country and that he came to the US in 1912. Her name was listed as Katrina Pavlikova. She moved to Austria and then to Australia and remarried. He changed his name to Albert Adolph Pauley and this is as far as I have gotten.
Sound familiar to anyone? I keep hitting road blocks.
