Looking for any info on my Great Grandfather – Frank Tuma

Unable to find anything on any database.

Frantisec or Franz “Frank” Tuma b abt 1864 in Ustalec. Came to USA in 1904. Listed his name on passenger list as Frant, so I am assuming Frantisec is real name. Brought the family to USA in 1909. Was a stone cutter. Died in Chicago in 1914.

Had a Brother named Anton b abt 1875 in Ustalec.

Was married to Marie Harant b1870 in Ustalec. Died in Berwyn, IL 1963 Marie’s parents were Jakub Harant and Josephine Buriana. Jakub’s Father was Vaclav Harant. Unk Mother. Josephines father was Hynke Buriana, mother may have been named Josephine also, unk surname. Her Sister Anzka (agnes) married a Sirovy.

His Children, Emil (my grandfather), Joseph, Anton, Charles and Frances were all born in Ustalec also.

Any info would be appreciated…
