I'm looking for any information I can on the family of Agnes Zavoral Vessel, born 10 May 1888 in Bohemia. Supposedly, Agnes Zavoral immigrated to the US about 1906, but I have no documentation on this. She married Joseph Vessel from Yugoslavia and lived in Los Angeles CA in the early 1900s. As far as I know, there were three daughters born to them: Agnes I Vessel born about 1914, Margarette or Margaretta A Vessel born about 1915, and Olga J Vessel born 4 May 1917 in Los Angeles.

Agnes Vessel was born Agnes Zavoral. She had a sister Marie Zavoral born about 1885 in Bohemia who married a Joseph Pitlik and lived in the Berwyn Illinois area... and a brother Frank John Zavoral born 28 Sep 1878 in Bohemia who married a Rose Marie Svoboda in Chicago. Frank and Rose were my grandparents.

I'm not sure where in Bohemia this family is from. Towns such as Radnice, Lubna and Perolec had popped up on documents involving these names, but I'm not sure if the towns are for the Zavorals or their spouses.

The maiden name of the mother of Agnes, Marie and Frank Zavoral might be Pohorska, or some similar spelling.
And the name Barbara Zavoral might be this same mother.

I'm looking for any information on the descendants of Agnes Zavoral Vessel and/or any information on her parents or other siblings.
