      In 1930 there was a John H Pekar (age 30) from Czechoslovakia in the
      household of
      his cousin in Bridgeport. The cousin's name appears to be John (age 31), as
      well, and
      there is a John, Jr in the family. The cousin's wife was Carlotta (age 27).
      There was
      also a Joseph (age 26) in the household listed as a cousin from
      Czechoslovakia, as well. In fact the entire household was Czech and spoke
      Slovak. John H and Joseph are indicated to have arrived in 1921. They were
      working in a "machine factory."

      There was also a John Pekar (age 32) with wife Anna (age 24) and children
      Stephen (8) and John (2) in Bridgeport. It says John was born in CT of Czech
      parents. Anna was Czech, as were her parents.

      There were other Pekars in Bridgeport at that time.

      Coincidentally, the same year, there was a John Pekar (age 29) in IL with
      wife Marie and three children. This John is listed as born in IL of Polish
      parents.
