I really don't have any other information about Jacob Holub at this
time as I haven't researched that line yet. If I come up with
something I surely will share it. You will probably find more
information through "The Texas Czech Storyteller" webpage by browsing
the articles and stories by Susan Henley. There are many Czech
surnames mentioned throughout, but no search engine, so you will need
to just browse. It will be well worth your time, as she is a
wonderful storyteller and researcher.
To help you locate the article about the Moravia General Store,
first go to "The Texas Czech Storyteller" website at:
http://www.angelfire.com/tx5/texasczech/ and scroll down to
"Pertinent Historical Markers" and click on "Lavaca County".
Then scroll down to "Moravia General Store".
Have you tried the archive search window for the TexasCzech Group?
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/texasczechs/ and the other suggestions
I made to Joshue? Queries placed on the many message boards available
are a great way to "find" relatives. That is how 2nd cousin, Ray J.
Bacak (of this E-group), and I found each other. Hi Ray!
It seems you share a great grandfather with my Aunt Virginia Petter
in El Campo, TX. If you would like her phone no. and address, let me
know by private e-mail and I will be happy to give it to you. She
not know anything beyond her grandparents, but she is fun to talk to,
and perhaps she can give you some names of other relatives who may
know something. Good luck!
You might try contacting Leroy Janda of this group, too, as I believe
he is researching the Hollub name because of their connection to the
Matula family. I might also add that the obituary for Frances Hollub
Hajek (daughter of J.M. Hollub and Johanna Matula) and for Johanna
Matula Hollub are located in the Texas Czechs Obituaries section of
the following site under 'H':
There is also a lot of information on the Hollub family in the book
The Czech Pioneers of the Southwest by the late Henry R. Maresh,
originally published in 1934.
- Thanks Matt for the info. I have been in personal contact with Leroy and he
has given me the complete Matula line and the interface with the Holub's. I
will surely look at the other information you have provided.
