Frederick Augustus Novak
According to the 1920 Federal Census, Marie immigrated to the United States in 14 May 1913 on the ship Kaiser Wilhelm Der Grosse using the surname Svolankova which means daughter of Zvolanek. The passenger list states that her voyage was paid for by her uncle, Frantisek Zvolanek, who lived in Cleveland. Both Marie and her uncle, were from the village of Krumencek, Bohemia. She married Fred Novak in October of 1913 and their son Frederick was born in August of 1914. After the 1920 Census, Mary married Mr. Youngman (first name unknown to me). In the 1930 Federal Census, she is still living in Cleveland but without her son, he is now living with his father. In 1932, divorced from Mr. Youngman she married Joseph Posik, a butcher. According to the Cuyahoga County Marriage Records, this was also the third marriage for Mr. Posik, his occupation may be the reason for his popularity with the ladies. Mary was divorced from Mr. Posik by the time of her death and using the name Youngman again. According to census records, Mary worked as a seamstress.
Her parents were Jan Zvolanek and Josepha Dolezal.
