Re: Purse-Purshka- Bohemia - PA

Hello: I have found Frank, Joseph and Antonin Kepka whose father was from Vejvanov, Bohemia. I am not sure if this is the same Kepka family you are talking about. Frank Jr. Lived in Chicago, IL and his brothers, by passenger lists, came to Chicago and stayed with him and his wife. Passport for Antonin mentions that his father lives in Vejvanov, Bohemia at the time of Antonin arriving in U.S. in 1906. Around 1919/1920, Antonin was returning to Bohemia to settle property. When he returned he was then married. His wife, Josephine, followed him to America with their daughter, Irma Kepka. I am not sure if this is one and the same Kepka you are looking for, but I do know that Antonin spent time in CA where there were other Kepkas, but not sure if they fit into the tree. If the father, Frank Sr., came to America some time, by 1906, the passport said that Frank was born in Vejvanov.
