I would check out another source on the ethnicity. My s-i-l's family
talked about their Bohemian grandfather who turned out to be a Rusyn from
Circ in what is now Slovakia.
- Bohemia is now Central and Eastern Czech Republic, Prague (Praha) being the "center". Do you have any inkling of the name of the town?

Austrian kingdom (10th century-1918)
Part of the Österreichisch-ungarische Monarchie, or
or in English, Austro-Hungarian Monarchy (1867-1918)
It was an Austrian Kröneland (province)
Both German and Czech languages were used.
Mähren => Maehren => Marin => Moravia.
Mähren was an Austrian Kröneland located east of Böhmen (Bohemia).
Its capital was Brünn (Brno).
Mähren had been a separate crownland until 1849 when it became a part
of Böhmen (Bohemia) together with Österreichisch-Schleisen
The Austrian Habsburgs, accustomed to being imperial, assumed the title
of Emperor of Austria in 1804. Later, the "dual-monarchy" was
established, with the Habsburgs as Emperors of Austria and Kings of
Hungary, the combined realm being known as "Austria-Hungary".
