Here is a post by a researcher of the Lorenz family of Chipmunk Coulee. It could be the same family as for Frances Ann Lorence who married Ignatz Hiekel; more research needed. The Stefan Lorenz who is mentioned (wife Rosina Werner) came from Prausse (now called Brusov) in Bohemia.

The article about the Bohemian settlers at Chipmunk Coulee says many came from Ober Ebersdorf near Dobern.

A Frank Hiekel (03 December 1839 - 27 April 1904) is buried at Chipmunk Coulee and appears in census records - a little more probing to figure out who he is. Note the name Hiekel appears mostly with the spelling ie, rather than ei.
