    • Notes 
      • !BORN: In the 10th house built in Skorice [Skoric/Skoritz], Bohemia,Czech. according to the State Regional Archeives obtained by Carol Olson JUL 1992.

        !SOURCE: Birth records of son, Jan N. Blecha, R. C. parish, Skorice, Vol. 5, Page 25

        !IMMIGRATION: Source was Czech Immigration Passenger Lists, author a Leo Baca, 1983, revised in 2000. Vol. 1, page 92 relates that between the years of 1848 to 1879 some 4,400 Czechs immigrated though the port of New Orleans and headed for Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Arkansas, Nebraska, Kentucky, Wisconsin and Texas. Information in this book was found at the National Archives. Page 94 has the vessel Bessel arriving at the Port of New Orleans on 12 Jan 1858, with 12 Czech immigrants on board. Page 98 has the following listing. Blecha, Franz 46, Josepha 37, Johann 18, Franz 16, Maria 6, Josepha 10, Thomas 8, Anna 2, Skortiz; Bessel, 12 January 1858; St. Louis.

        The last line has the note after Anna’s name of Skortiz, which confirms the spelling of their home town in the 1850’s. It goes on to give the name of the ship Bessel and the ending port which is St. Louis.

        Reference was found for the Bessel, Type:, steamship. Built:, 1854 by Caird & Co., Greenock, Scotland for the Cunard Line. No known photo or information available. This listing for the steam ship had a link to the family name RIEPE, which said a Mary came to America at age 38 years on the "Ship Bessel" with her husband and children. The ship bearing the RIEPE family departed from Bremen, Germany and arrived in St. Louis, MO on December 7, 1858. The Blecha's arrived some eleven months earlier in the year on January 12, 1858, in St. Louis on the same ship. If you look at the map of Germany, the inland Port of Bremen is some 42 miles by river from the North Sea at the Port of Bremerhaven giving a direct link to the North Atlantic Ocean via the North Sea. Bremen to Skortiz is some 320 airmiles, quite a distant to travel by road in 1858. Question, was the Steamship Bessel employed in a series of round trips from Bremen to St. Louis? If so, checking of the records of departures from Bremen would be in order. The missing Thomas is listed with the family on this record. Most of the ages given on the record are within one or two years of what is already recorded, and the difference would depend on how you round off the ages. One slight difference is with Josephine, who is listed as ten years old when prior records would have her about seven years old when on the ship. Another difference is with Maria [Mary] who would of been 12 years of age, not 6 as listed on the ship's record.

        !NOTES: Spelling of name as on records of marriage, R. C. parish records, Skorice. Czech spelling would be Josefa. Josephine would be the english spelling. 1860 census had her as Josepha. Death certificate of her son Joseph had her name spelled as Josephine Bielek.

        !BURIED: During visit by Jerry Konoske on June 9, 1995, obtained the following information at Holy Trinity Cemetery, Newburg, WI. The cemetery is located one block north west of the Holy Trinty Roman Catholic Church. The gravesite marker is a tall six foot gray granite tower with a cross on top. On the bottom, in large letters is "BLECHA". On the south side is engraved "Frank Blecha, Died July 20, 1899, Aged 88 yr 2 mo". On the north side is engraved "Josephine Blecha, Died Feb 1, 1890, Aged 70 yrs, 2 mo".

        !CENSUS: July 6, 1860 census taken at post office in Myra, town of Trenton, WI showed her to be a 42 yrs old female. She was also listed in the 1880 census, Town of Trenton, as Josephine, WF 61 yrs.
