Orsak and Orsag are the same name. This Johann Orsak(g)is not mine. I was just doing Ed a favor by looking up the Orsak since he hit a brick wall. I imagine these Orsak's all are related somehow since coming from Novy Hrozenkov and settling in Texas

Mary was born 08 Sep 1851 and her parents were Joseph Prihoda and Rosina Valligury. Leo Baca's Baltimore 1880-1899 volume shows a Josef Orsag 30, wife Maria 31, Vinzenz 11, Rosalie 3, from Austria aboard the Hermann, arriving 14 Feb 1883. I'm pretty sure this is the same Joseph and Mary Orsak with their name changed from Orsag to Orsak. Joseph and Mary Prihoda Orsak are buried in St. Ann's cemetery, Hocheim, TX. Are these Orsaks possible related to your Johann Orsag?

My Wiesner family originates from Frenstat. My g-g-grandfather, Wilhelm R. Wiesner, had two family members marry into the Michna family. My 4th g-g-uncle, Antonin Wiesner b. 1795 Frenstat, married Johana Michna b. 1799, daughter of Martin Michna. My g-g-grandfather's sister, Alzbeta Wiesner b. 1844 Frenstat, married Jan Michna b. 1828, son of Tomas Michna.
I wonder if either of them connect with your line.
