Darlene, the book I have just shows Vaclav and Marie. My
great grandpa Otto Hanus put this book together. Here is the story that he
wrote on the first page.
Vaclav and Marie (Kral) Hanus arrived in
New York on February 10, 1891 on the steamship Sallier and ten days later landed
in Galveston. From there, they proceeded to LaGrange, Texas by rail and
upon their arrival made acquaintance with Augustine Haidusek, who assisted them
to settle on a farm owned by his friend, Judge Brown, of Fayette County.
Judge Brown furnished them with teams, tools and seed and the entire proceeds
from the first crop for clearing the farm from wild coffee and corn. The
crop turned out well and the proceeds enabled them to buy their own teams and
tools and, again, rented the same farm for $2.00 per acre. The second crop
was even better and they bought their own farm near Schulenburg where they
Grandfather Hanus was an avid orchardist
and the first thing he planted was a large orchard of every type fruit
available. His hobby was grapes and, at one time, he had over one hundred
varieties of grapes, most of which he propogated himself. His fame spread
far and wide and people came for his grapes to make vine at home. They
carried away tubs full and Grandfather never charged them a dime for them.
The last two years, he was almost an invalid, but the boys carried him to his
grapes and he worked on his knees to propogate them.
Grandmother passed away on Feb. 28, 1905
after a long illness and Grandfather followed her a little over a year later on
April 30, 1906. They are interred in the northeast corner of the C.R.
Walters Memorial Cemetery in the northeast city limits of Schulenburg,
Now I do know that Vaclav and Marie had a daughter Anna
Hanus(b. 6-22-1866/d. 2-10-1934) who married Ludwig Krupa(b. 4-11-1867/d.
10-30-1947). Their next child was Joseph Hanus(b. 3-5-1867/d.
9-15-1937). Vaclav Hanus(b. 3-27-1872/d. 9-15-1940) who married Marie
Jurecek(b. 10-12-1881/d. 10-9-1936). The next child was Marie Jenofefa
Hanus(b. 3-26-1873/d. 1-31-1960) who married Josef Sumbera(b. 6-12-1867/d.
11-10-1907). They then had Emerich Hanus(b. 8-26-1867/d. 5-10-1959) who
married Ludmila Sumbera(b. 11-23-1882/d. ? ). Their final child was Otokar
Hanus(b. 12-7-1883/d. 12-3-1934) who married Josephine Macura(12-23-1888/d.
5-4-1960). If any of this helps please let me know.
