Hello Deanna,

I have very little information to share, but I am so glad you have begun this ECHER Forum. I am researching Echers who came to Iowa from Bohemia, Czechoslovakia, betw 1884 and 1895. They lived in Washington, Marshall Co., IA, according to the 1895 Iowa State Census.

The father, Joseph Echer, b abt 1843
The mother, Elizabeth, b. abt 1857
The children: Frank J., James, Anna Mae, and Joseph Jr.
[I have birth dates from the census]

All family members were born in Czechoslovakia except Joseph Jr, who was born in Marshall Co., IA.

Frank J. is buried in Tama County, IA and I have information about Anna Mae's marriage and children. Anna Mae died in 1965 in Iowa Falls, Hardin Co., IA.

Do you happen to know any of these Echers? Good luck in your research!
