Maria Zitzmann b. 3 Oct 1876 in Rosshaupt/Rozvadov, Bohemia to Johann Zitzmann and Theresia Dorfler. She had two daughters, Marie (b. abt 1900) and Rosa (b. abt 1904), who were likely born in Rosshaupt, but their father's name is unknown. I'm trying to find their father's name, and whether Marie married him or not. She immigrated to the US in 1906, but was turned away at Ellis Island. Still trying to find record of her second (successful) immigration, but it was before 1910. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Brandt Gibson Fife, WA

I have been searching for any relative of Jacob Florian (born 1841 in Suchdol nad Luznici, Bohemia)who may have a photo of him. He immigrated in 1876 to Worth Cty, Iowa. He moved with wife Marie and children Anna, Mary(Schneider), Katherine(Snell), Elizabeth(Misera), James and Louise(Keegan) to the New Prague, MN area about 1800. His children Christina(Lipold) and Rosa(Noska)were born there. He farmed in Helena Tsp until his death in St. Paul 1897. He is buried in Calvary Cemetery in St. Paul. I am hoping that one of his descendants may have a photo. Contact me at kathysig@insightbb.com with information. Thank you, Kathy
