Secula/Seculo and Belle

I am researching a family with the last name Seculo. On their 1920 census they listed their native country as Austria and that the native language as Slavish. In the 1930 census they have their native country as Bohemia and Bohemian a their native language. John Seculo - b.abt 1882, immigrated abt 1904, was in Trinidad, Colorado by 1905. wife Francisca Belle - b. abt 1883, immigrated abt 1904, was in Trinidad, Colorado by 1905. Does the name even sound Bohemian to anyone? Any ideas? I'm stuck.

Bier, Bira

I am looking to trace my great-grandfather Mathias Bier (I am unsure regarding this spelling, both of first and last names!) and his Bohemian family. He was born Jan 19, 1849 (unverified) in Graslitz, Bohemia – aka Gradlitz, aka Choustníkovo Hradiště (a village in Trutnov District in the Hradec Králové Region of the Czech Republic). Parents were Frank and Frances. Siblings were Julia, William, Josephine, Frances, Frank and Wilhelmina. He arrived thru Governors Island, USA on May 22, 1873 He changed his name (in US between 1873 and 1878) to Henry (or Hy) Dorner. He sailed to Australia in 1878/1879. I can track/trace his history as Henry Dorner thru Australia and South Africa. He died in a Red Cross (ICRC) Internment camp in Switzerland in 1918, as Mathias Bier.
