|Bio and Links|
I live in Ottawa County, Kansas. Some of the relatives are Boucek's, Srna's, Wolf's, Blaha's, Kunc's, Koller's, Brion's, Sechrist's, and Grace's on my mom's side.|
On my dad's side are Smith's, Schmidt's, Gronewaller's, McKain's.
The profile picture is at the pasture, my favorite place. Located 2 miles south of the Bohemian Cemetery, 1 mile from the Bladwin Cemetery and 5 miles from the Fairview Cemetary in the heart of the Bohemian hills. This area is where ALL my mom's family settled in 1870's. I went to grade school in Ada and High School in Minneapolis. Now, I'm back HOME after 30 years away.

|Margaret E Balaun Stearns||Correct Date of Balaun Immigration|
The year the Joseph Balaun family sailed across the seas was 1866 not 1886. They gave birth to my grandfather (Peter) in 1870 in Allegheny PA and were settled in Kansas around 1875.
|Margaret E Balaun Stearns||Joseph Balaun (sometimes Baloun)|
He's my great grandfather, too. His first six children (Ignatius, Frank, Mary or Maria, Barbara, Johanna and Karoline) were born in Bohemia; the seventh (Albert) was born at sea. They had first sailed from Germany to Bergen, Norway, where they boarded the ship "Anna" for the six weeks journey to Quebec. At the first opportunity they moved to Pittsburgh where my grandfather, Peter Roman, was born, followed by Anna and John, before the family moved on to Ada, Kansas abt 1875.
Thanks for doing this work, connecting us all.

Thanks for letting me know more about the stone for Infant Boblett. I emailed the contributor who has management of the memorials to link them to their parents.
Thanks again for photographing! Erin

|Erin ||Infant Boblett photo|
Thank you for taking a photo of this memorial #65149259 for Infant Boblett. As well as Charles J. Boblett #65149260. I cant tell from the photo, but I was wondering if the infant Boblett stone had a name at the top? Is is possible to do a crayon rubbing or wetting the stone with water to see if it holds any further clues? I appreciate your time to visit the cemetery to begin with, let me know if you can help me out with this additional request. Thanks so much :-) Erin
