I am looking for any information on the Samec Family. My grandfather came to America in 1904 from Bohenmia. I have little to no information about him before this time. I am looking for this information. His father was Jan Samec and mother was Marie (maybe) Strumpl. no other info on her other than it is beleived that she died in 1919. Frank had at least 3 brothers who also came here. They are Earnest, Jan and Vladslav (Ladislav). At one point Vladslav (Ladislav) may have lived in the Interlachen area of Florida. Family lore thinks that Vladslav (Ladislav) and Jan may have returned to Bohemia after the death of Marie. They may have been killed whilke serving fot the Austrian army.
Earnest settled in the New York City area. He married and had one son, Earnest who was killed in a fighter plane just prior to WW 2.
Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated.
