        Death was at 2854 S. Karlov Ave., Chicago. 1910 City Directory lists him as a fireman living at 2628 S. Harding Ave. Also lived at 2854 S. Karlov Ave. when he died. He was barn boss.

        Have a copy of his obit written in Czech. I think it says he had a daughter Caroline.

        He died of Pulmonary Tuberculosis.
