Rosalie Picha

Posted In

Born 3 or 30 Aug 1859 and came to US around 1870-1875. Where did she come from in southern Bohemia and who did she travel with to the US? Married Jacob Bastyr in Scott Co, MN in 1875 and Joseph Dvorak in Rice Co, MN in 1880. Died in MN 17 Feb 1943.



Birth record indicates born to single mother Marie Kouba in Vyšné on 23 Jan 1859. Marie married Franišek Piha when Rosalie was 5 yrs old, but her birth not legitimized in her birth record. US obituary states she attended Catholic school before immigrating when she was around 16. Still need to find who she traveled with to Southern Minnesota. Didn’t come with any immediate family.
