I wish that I could have known her. I cannot fathom how horrible it would be to have five of your sons die in Moravia. They died before they left Moravia. My poor great grandmother survived six weeks aboard a ship from Moravia. With the crowded, hot, and unsanitary conditions aboard a ship with your four little children, and they were very poor, and had very little. So, I don't know how they came up with the money for passage to America. I would have been terrified to leave my home. They left to come to America for a "new life" where they had freedom from the cold winters, freedom of religion, and to fulfill the American dream of owning their own property. Land was everything to them. They were good, hard working Catholics, and worked for everything that they had. They grew their own food in their garden, and were farmers.
