Have you tried looking at the different CZ sites
here online? I know that I've see Philomena MAREK's name in my research.
Did they live in the Wharton area? Have you tried googling their names
online? Sometimes that will bring you to research about them? I am related
to some MAREK's through my MONDRIK/MONDRICK line. They were the ones I
mentioned in the Wharton Co, TX area. There is a immigration list here
online with a link to this list where many of the TX-Czech immigrants are listed
with the name of their village in the CZ. I don't have the URL of the
website, but its easily found by googling "Czech Immigration" or something like
Please bear with me while I try to tell this story...I am
hoping it might touch someone's memory.
was Frantisek (Frank) Marek.
Born: 14 Feb 1855 Czechoslovakia
Jan 1918 West, McLennan, Texas
Frank Marek had two wives. The
first one was killed by a neighbor when she heard a calf crying and went to
give it water. The neighbor thought she was trying to steal it and shot her.
Her name (I think) is Theresa (Terezie) Maresh. All I know about her is that
she is buried in the Catholic Cemetery in West, TX. Her grave is not marked
because of the way she died (I know...makes no sense). She had several
children with Frank Marek. They are:
Theresa Marek Hynek
Annie Marek Pavlicek (1887-1975)
Joe R. Marek
Philomena (Filomena) Cinek, Sinek, Cenek, Cink,
Cynek was his second wife and my Great Grandmother. She came over from Czech
possibly with her brother (Frank?). She got off the train at West, TX and
went to the Catholic Church and asked a priest who in the area might need
help. He told her Frank Marek needed help with the small children. They fell
in love and were married. They had several children:
(Adolph) Marek (1894-1972)
Frances (Fannie) Marek Ruzicka (1898-1972) My
Philomena Marek (1898?- 1988)
I cannot find
anything anywhere about where in Czech Frank Marek or Philomena Cinek came
from. Can anyone help me?
