My great grandfather, Valentine Kupcak (1841/1909), married my great
grandmother, Marianna Prasifka (1857-1933) in Bluff, (Hostyn), Fayette Co., TX in
1881. They are both buried at St. Johns, (Schulenburg), Fayette Co., Texas.
Marianna was born to Rosina Genser and Jan(Johann) Prasifka in Vlcovice,
Moravia, Empire of Austria. She had three brothers (Jan, Joseph, and Frank) and
four sisters (Johanna who died as an infant, Rozalie, Agnes, a second born
Johanna, and Rozina). Rozalie (1849/1920) married Jan/John Vasek (1845/1921)
in 1874 and had two sons, Jan/John Vasek (1879/1937) and Frank Vasek
(1882/1932). John Vasek married Frantiska (?) and Frank Vasek Jr. married
Antonia Stang (1888/1936).

I do not know if any other siblings of my great grandmother, Marianna Prasifka
Kupcak (besides Rozalie) came to America or if they married. If anyone reading
this knows of any other descendants of the children of Rosina Genser and Jan
Prasifka I would greatly appreciate if you would contact me via e-mail
( I wish to invite as many as can be located to the 2002
Kupcak/Prasifka Family Reunion this coming April at St. Johns Parish. I will
forward details to those who are interested. Thank you, Laura Petter Pilgrim
