I think I've found Barbara's parents. Spelling is different, but I've learned to sound things out and allow for accents and just plain changing the spelling as a name passed through a family.

Name:       Frantisek Vrchoticky
Death Date:       1902
Page #:       236
Birth Date:       1821
Cemetery:       St. Joseph
Town:       Iowa City
Relative:       81y
Level Info:       Johnson County, Iowa Wpa Grave Registrations

Name:       Katherina Vrchoticky
Death Date:       1904
Page #:       236
Birth Date:       1818
Cemetery:       St. Joseph
Town:       Iowa City
Relative:       86y
Level Info:       Johnson County, Iowa Wpa Grave Registrations

Possible siblings in Barbara's family based upon parents names listed 1925 census were :
John, b. abt 1847
Joseph, b. abt 1852
Frank, b. abt 1850
Wesley b. 1857-61, who came to US abt 1868
Mary, b. abt 1850

Found their family 1880
1880 census Oxford, Johnson, Iowa
Shebetka, Frank, 60, farmer, Boh
Catherine, wife, 58, keeping house
Joseph, 26, son, at home
John, 24, son, at home
Frank, 18, son, at home
Wesley, 15, son, at home

The three sons, Joseph, Frank and John may have been listed on the 1870 census in Johnson County as Shonka's, living with another family.


The Shonka name was listed as Shonka, Sumka, Schunka, and Sharka on the 1925 census.
