According to a large plaque at the cemetery, both Matthew and Regina are in unmarked graves.
There is a large number of people interred without stones in this cemetery. In the early days, wooden crosses were used to mark the graves in Catholic cemeteries, but they only last so long.
Yes, I have seen the 1914 plat map.
Anton is somewhat of a mystery to me in that I can't find him in Platte county on the 1940 census and he should have registered for the WWII Draft. Nothing there either. His obit says they moved to Columbus from the farm, nothing there either.
I do find on the 1940 an Anthony and Anna Placzek living in Tarnov, but the birth years are 1867 and 1876. Too old. do you know who they are. Could he be a brother to John?
So, another question, or two..were John and Agnus married in Poland or in Saxony where daughter Josephine was born.
I still can not find this family on the 1885 census, and I usually find who I seek. Makes me think they lived elsewhere while getting their farm started up. I also don't understand why I can't find the families immigration to the states. Now I'm scratching my head:).
