      I need to look in the book for a couple more of the entries, but here
      are a couple:

      Pg. 93 (Granger entry): "Before the year of 1880 this part of the
      state was very thinly populated. There were no roads and the
      settlers usually had to travel long distances for supplies. At that
      time there was a small church at Taylor, where most of the Czech
      Catholics attended church services. At times a priest would say Holy
      Mass in Granger in the home of Mrs. Strouhal. In 1890 the settlers
      met at the home of W. Keliehor, south of Granger, who had offered
      some land for church purposes but the people decided to build in
      town. They began with the building on the 26th day of October 1891
      and the building was under the roof for Christmas Day. The church
      was dedicated by Father Joseph Chromcik to the honor of Ss. Cyrill &
      Methodius. The land was donated by W. H. Walton, a lawyer, who lived
      in Austin. At the meetings for the building of the church present
      were John Najzr, O. R. Bartosh, Val Krkoska, Paul Kopecky, Ferd
      Kaderka, Jiri (George) Jurecka, John David, John Janak. Joseph
      Kaderka, John Kalinec, Anton Zrubek, Martin Kopecky, Vinc Struhal,
      Joseph Cervenka, John Mazac, Fr. Cervenka, Vaclav Nemec, J. Rychlik
      and ondrej (Andrew) Janak. John R. Vojtek John Martinka."

      Pg. 94 (Granger entry): "First wedding was that of Vinc Struhal and
      Miss Frances Korenek, January 8, 1894. Val Bartosh donated main
      Altar, John Baca and Terezie Bohac a side altar. Altar Society also
      side Altar. Mr. H. Janak statue of St. Joseph, Dr. Kidney statue of
      Blessed Virgin."
