My grandfather Frank J. Sykora was born on 1 December 1890 in or near Shiner. His parents were Jacob Sykora b: June 29, 1862 (or Sikora on early documents) and Aloisie (Louise) Melnar b: March 31, 1866. Jacob and was born overseas, probably in Bohemia or Moravia in what is now the Czech Republic.

My grandfather had other siblings:
John J. SYKORA        b: January 6, 1885
Vincent SYKORA              b: 1887       
Jacob Peter SYKORA       b: May 9, 1896       
Louise SYKORA              b: 1899              

Around 1906 the family moved to near Megargel in Archer Co. TX.

I have no info on a village of origin for Jacob Sykora, and no family info on Aloisie Melnar. Any leads or possible tie-ins would be appreciated.
