      Good Morning, Christi,
      welcome to the group.  I took the following information from a genealogy study which came to me from another researcher.  The slovak and the Stepan families were related as shown below.  along with Martin Stepan in 1855 came a number of the slovak family.  they settled in the  washington County, Austin county and several surrounding counties in Texas.  The following information can give you some good ideas about the area of Moravia they originally came from.  Good luck and please ask the group for specific information you would like to have.  They can be very helpful.

      Your ancestral villages

       

      Drzkova

      http://www.drzkova.web4u.cz/index.php


      Village situated in okres (district) Zlin, kraj (region) Zlin. Population 340

      Census dated 1880 says that in the village lived in 189 houses 849 Czech speaking dwellers.

      First written notice about the village is dated in 1391.

      In the center of the village is located a nice wooden beltry.

       

      Hostalkova

      http://www.hostalkova.cz


      Village situated in okres (district) Vsetin, kraj (region) Zlin. Population 2 010.

      Firstly mentioned in 1505 but it is supposed that the village was established in the 14th century.

      There are buildings of chateau (rebuilt in 1848), catholic (built in 1789) and protestant (built in 1831) churches.
      Census dated 1890 says that in the village lived in 339 houses 1 865 Czechs and 12 Germans.

      In this times was already mentioned elementary school and post office.

      In 1981 was in Hostalkova found a depot (hidden by the bandits probably) of 114 silver coins from the 16th century.

       

      Numbers of  houses

      In the time of Emperor Joseph II. this numbers introduced 1770 first. If a village/town had a chapel or church in 1770 they might have used that as a starting point for numbering but then you would expect the house numbers to follow one another in some sort of order.
      Some houses were built between the old farms and needed also new numbers.

      In Hostalkova were all houses renumbered in 1827. For example house #53 became #173.

       

      Names and various forms of spelling

      This surnames is written in vital registers in various form of spelling. The spelling could be different but pronunciation was always the same. Reason is that some records is written in Latin, another in German andCzech.

      In Czech spelling are the lastnames in forms Stepan, Slovak, Simek, Tkadlecek,

      but in German were spelled as Schtiepan, Slowak, Schimek and Tkadleczek.

      Similar situation is spelling of firstnames.

      Example:

      Person who was born as Joannes (written in Latin), later had married as Johann (written in German)

      and died as Jan (written in Czech).  There exists more similar situations Georg-Georgius-Jiri (Jura),

      Franz-Franciscus-Frantisek, Marina (Maryna)=Marianna, Mathias-Maczek, Venceslaus-Wenzel-Vaclav etc.
