    • Notes 


      • BIRTH: Also shown as Born Hlince, Czechoslovakia.

        Per Art Lang, came in abt 1867 and came through Chicago

      • Art correctly had his birth location as "Hlinec, Kralovice Plzen, Bohemia, Czechoslovakia", but I am using the actual location as on the birth record, according to Jan Zajicek.
