Antonin RAUSER (or RAUSCHER) had three wives. Antonin had been born at Susice Bohemia on 13 Jun 1819. The first was Maria Anna KOSTINCOVA (1821 – 1854) who he married on 16 Jan 1843 at Strakonice or Pisek Bohemia. The second was Marie MACHNIK (1819 – 1863) who he married on 12 Feb 1855 at Strakonice Bohemia. The third was Marie KOTAL (1840 – unk) who he married on 1 Feb 1864 at Strakonice Bohemia. Antonin came to America at an unknown time and died in St Louis MO. Do not know if he came by himself or if he came with his third wife. Believe that Antonin’s parents were Vaclav RAUSER and Maria MASTOVSKA. One of Antonin’s children was a daughter named Frantiska Xavier RAUSCHER who was born 11 Apr 1843 or 1844 (she married a RYSKA on 30 Apr 1866 in Strakonice Bohemia). Looking for baptismal records in Bohemia to confirm the birth dates.
