Looking for my G-Grandfather, Frank VAVRICKA, born in Sechov Vysocina Bohemia on 12/10/1855. He came to America in 1881 and for a while settled in Iowa. Mostly in Pocahantas County, but also in Webster County, Iowa. Then later moved to Olivia, Renville County, Minnesota. He was married to Frances VOSIKA. He died in Olivia, MN on 5/15/1929.

I am mainly looking for any information on his life/family in Sechov or possibly Ledec nad Sazavou. I haven’t been able to find any churches in Sechov or any surrounding villages yet.

Thanks in advance for any tidbits!
