John Tlustos came from Nory Mesto Kuklik, Moravia to America in 1884, with the Frank Jun family. He worked around Humboldt, Wilber, and Omaha. In the blizzard of 1888 he froze his feet so badly that his toes had to be amputated.

In 1896 he married Marie Svanda Pruddish. They had five children: Josephine, Frank, and Antonette; two died in infancy.

John, with his family, left Pawnee County in 1904 to make their home in Haigler, Nebr. where they took a homestead. They suffered many hardships, drought, grasshoppers, prairie fires, hails; their small home burned down with all their personal possessions. Discouraged in 1911 they came back to Table Rock, where John died in 1913.

(The following information is thanks to Frances Blecha.)
