      Gender Male 
      Residence 1788  horejsi rybarna, Bohemia Find all individuals with events at this location 
      horejsi rybana, Bohemia is also the same location as Hlince 6. Jan and Anna must have been living here for the birth of Vaclav.

      According to notes found by Jan Zajicek, it appears that Jan was living here with his son for a period of time. "6. Jan Blecha: rybak pod Dubjany, otec Václava Blechy (matrika oddaných, Ch?le 02, str. 130/142, dne 29/5/1808) V dob? svatby syna Vaclava Blechy byl rybákeny v Dubjanach"

        Date of death: September 22, 1812
        Date of funeral: September 24, 1812
        Funeral performed in Chric by Josef Weingartner, localist

        Last rites were administered Josef Weingartner, localist.
        [3]
      • The death record states that the death location is Studena 4, but it also adds Dubjansky Rybarne. I believe this means that the family had a home in Studena 4, but also maintained the fish station along the river.
