families that emigrated from Moravia. Besides the town of West, Texas
(which is not in western texas, but rather north of Waco) there are
several towns around Flatonia that were settled by Czechs. I think they
came from Galveston, and maybe even Corpus Christi.
Unfortunately, not many Slovaks here (though a few, like my family, came
from other areas of the US and ended up settling here)
