From your list of surnames it must have been either
Sladky or Cerny ?
Cerny meaning "a dark hair man" is the 5th most popular
surname in the Czech Republic.
5 % of the Czech population bear this particular surname.
There are probably 3000-4000+ surname Cerny bearers living just
in the U.S.
Czech-Bohemia (including Moravia 1849-1918) was a kingdom
(10th century-1918) and after 1867, part of the Austro-Hungarian
It was an Austrian Kröneland.
There was no country called "Czechoslovakia" until the WW I
In 1920, a newly-formed country of Czechoslovakia was created
from the Austrian Crownlands (Bohemia, Moravia and Austrian-Silesia)
and a portion of Upper-Hungary (Slovakia and Karpatho-Ukraine).
The U.S. Census enumerations 1880/1900/1910 reflected this.
The 1920 U.S. Census reflected the political changes that
occurred in Europe after 1918.
Early on , Czechs emigrated to the U.S. via the Gulf State
ports and TX and then moved to the Midwest and elsewhere.
This migration began around 1850 and accelerated into the 1890s.
Czechs to PA likely entered the U.S. through the Philadelphia
port of entry since it was the closest to their Final Destinations.
If your cousin is correct there is no b.c. from NYC or PA ?
When was your baba born ?
If she emigrated to the U.S. she probably sailed from either the
Bremen or Hamburg, Germany port of exit.
