Urban/Pekar
Posted by: Kimberly Thorne (ID *****8875) Date: November 30, 2007 at 08:45:38
  of 601

Seeking any info on parents of John (Jan/Johan) Urban, married Anna (Annie) Pekar. He was b. ca. 4.1847 in Bohemia? Anna b. 1855 in Bohemia. They migrated to the US around 1872, although I think they were unmarried at the time. They quite possibly met aboard ship and married soon after landing because the 1900 US Texas census (Fayette County) states that they've been in the US for 28 years, and that they've been married for 27. I can't find a marriage record, but it's quite possible I've just not located it yet. Any help is appreciated, as I'd like to know who John's parents are (although I believe his father to be named Stephan or Stefan).
