Obit/Cemetery info in Prague
Posted by: Jody McKenney Thomson (ID *****9581) Date: January 18, 2006 at 15:07:33

In 1923 Similda Heath (who was 82 yo at the time) wrote a letter from Prague giving an update of the family. Similda died on 24 July 1929 in Prague.

Her daughter, Junia (aka June) Heath, was the owner and/or editor of the town newspaper in 1923. Similda's grandson, Curtis Merle Randall, was helping out at the paper.

By 1930 Similda, of course, had died. But I can find no evidence of Junia Heath. I am wondering if she died in Prague also before 1930.

Is there anyone who would have easy access to records and tell me if either Similda or Junia Heath were buried in a cemetery there - or even better, if there was an obit for either of them! Since Junia was a newspaper woman, I would expect there would have been something!

If anyone cannot do a lookup for me - could you give me advise about where I might write or phone for these records? I live about 2000 miles from Oklahoma so visiting there is not an option for me!

Thank you!!
