      Mr. J. F. Stavinoha of Ammannsville, who died Jan. 5th, 1930 in Weimar at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Emil Hluchanek, was buried at Ammannsville, Revs. Syzmanski of Weimar and Raska of Ammannsville officiating.
       
      By occupation Mr. Stavinoha was a farmer and carpenter.  Some twenty-five years ago he lost one of his eyes while doing carpenter work.  All of his children were given a start in life for themselves.  About two years ago he moved from his farm to the city of Ammannsville.
       
      Mr. Stavinoha was born Oct. 12, 1858, in Zabrezu, Moravia, Austria, being a son of Peter Stavinoha.  He came to Texas at the age of 16 years.  He was married to Miss Annie Adamcik Nov. 6, 1879.  The couple celebrated their golden wedding anniversary two months ago, on Nov. 4th, 1929. 
       
      To this union eleven children were born, all of whom survive, as follows:  Emil of Rosenberg, Albert and Fred of Fairchilds, Joe of Ganado, Adolph of Temple, George of La Grange, Jim of Ammannsville, Mrs. Lillie Horak of Needville, Mrs. Mary Hluchanek of Weimar, Mrs. Martha Bohac of Ammannsville and Mrs. Della Kristek of Weimar.  Mr. and Mrs. Stavinoha are also the grandparents of forty children.  Mr. Stavinoha lost by death three sisters and one brother.  Two brothers still survive -- Cyril, of Jourdanton and Adolf of near Ammannsville; also one sister, Mrs. Agnes Barta of Jourdanton.
       
      Truly a grand, good character has passed from among us!
