Birth: Dec. 27, 1869
Jihomoravsky (South Moravia), Czech Republic
Death: Apr. 25, 1942
Washtenaw County
Michigan, USA

Fabian Benedik was born December 28, 1869 to Ján and Anna Benedik, in Vnorovy which is in the state of Jihomoravsky, Czech Republic. He married Apolonia Cechova on September 15, 1894 in Vnorovy. In 1903, Fabian first traveled to America leaving his family (which at that time included 3 children) behind. His wife joined him in America in 1906 for a time, but the couple returned to Vnorovy where two more children were born—in 1907 and 1908. The children born in the Czech Republic were Marie, Frances, Frank, Pauline and John.

In 1910, Fabian returned permanently to America, settling near Toledo, Ohio. Apolonia, Marie and Frank joined him in 1912. Soon after, Frances also joined them but it would be another 8 years before Pauline and John immigrated. In the meantime, Fabian and Apolonia had two more sons in Ohio: Stephen and Joseph. Fabian supported his family as a laborer in the beet fields.

By 1930, Fabian's family had settled on a farm on Sherman Road, Milan, Michigan. The household at this point consisted of Fabian, 60, and Apolonia, 57, their two youngest sons, Stephen and Joseph, as well as their daughter Marie, her husband, John Holek, and 6 year old grandson, John Holek.

Apolonia died March 22, 1938 in Milan. Fabian continued to live with the Holeks in the same house until he died on April 27, 1942. They are both buried at Marble Park Cemetery in Milan.

At least two of Fabian's siblings immigrated to America: Kristina Benedik Pavka and Martin Benedict.
