I am searching for history on the deceased Captain Frank Capek, he died in the 1930(s). He was a Captain in Franz Joseph's Army. He was a POW in the Russian Army for 20 years. Married to Katherine Von Koenig (Konig). They exiled to the U.S. from Luxemburg,Germany and married in Chicago. He played primary role in the Haymarket Riot of Chicago. This is all that I know about my great great grandfather. However, he had a brother who also served in Custer's Army and fought under the command of Reno. I would greatly appreciate any detailed information. Thanks. ajcapek@ev1.net

Any Known offspring?
Any known siblings?
I think he had six brothers?
Any love letters or stories?
Any war stories?
