    • Notes 
      • !NOTES: Birth, marriage, death information from Ruth Blecha June 1995.Marriage registration from records of Register of Deeds, Washington County, West Bend, WI. Marriage registration has her last name spelled Blecher. Before being married she stood [worked] at the Nicolas Schuman Hotel at Newberg. And from Helen Lueck, July 2001.

        !BORN: Skorice, death record had her as Anna [called Emma] Blechar, born in Skoritz, Pilson, Bohemia.

        !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.

        !MARRIED: Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church, Newburg, Washington, WI, from the records of Washington County, WI, USA. Witnesses were Thomas Blecher, Martin Keindall, Barbara Chasock, Margaretha Schmitt.

        !CENSUS: July 6, 1860 census, post office, Myra, Town of Trenton, WI, to be 5 yrs of age, page 168, line 18.

        !BURIED: From personal visit in May, 1996 by Jerry and Rosemaire Konoske, in the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic cemetery in Newburg, WI. Head stone reads, Anna, wife of Jos. Schmidt, born Oct 28, 1854, Died Dec 8, 1877.

        !DIED: Records show 8 Dec. 1877, tombstone has 8 Dec. 1877. Registration of Deaths, record #100. Parents were listed as unknown and her name is listed as Anna [called Emma] Schmit-Blechar. She died at the hotel at Westbend. Husband listed as Joseph Schmit. Record has a note saying "Before her marriage she worked at Nicolas Schuman hotel at Newburg, whose wife was her sister".

        !DIED FROM: After child birth.
