    • Notes 
      • !SOURCE: Ruth Blecha provided the information regarding her husband andone child.

        !NOTES: Came over with father from Bohemia. They had a total of 10 children. Marriage record of Holy Trinity RC Church in Newburg, WI, had her last name as Blicher.

        !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. 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 Bremenhaven 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.

        !BORN: From birth record of son Heinrich Schuman, Maria Blecha [#793 lists mother's name as Mary Blecha], birthplace of mother given as Rackison, [Rakison ?]Bohemia. Rev. Aug. Durst, pastor, Newburgh, Wis.

        !MARRIED: Holy Trinity Catholic Church, Newburg, Washington, WI. Records have her last name as Blicher as a witness for her brother Frank's marriage.

        !CENSUS: Per Mrs Ruth Blecha, June 1995. 1860 Census showed her to be 16 yrs of age and living at home. Taken July 6,1860. Post Office, Myra, Town of Trenton. Page 168, line 15

        !OBIT: Prayer card from funeral. In Pious Memory of Mary Schumam, born October 30, 1846, Died February 8, 1924. Prayer. Absolve, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the soul of Thy servant MARY, that, being dead to this world, she may live to Thee, and whatever sins she may of committed in this life through human frailty, do Thou, of Thy most mericful goodness forgive. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. Merciful Jesus, grant her eternal rest. [Funeal home] Diederich-Schaefer Co., Milwaukee.
