In Reply to: Motl family info by Kathy Motl Macha of 435

1900 census Fayette Co, TX:

Motle[sic], Joseph, h, b Jun 1877, 22, md 1 yr, b Boh, Boh, Boh
" Amalie, w, b Feb 1878, 22, md 1 yr, 1 ch, 0 lvg, b TX, Boh, Boh
[Boh is short for Bohemia, later census it will say Austria, and still later I think they will refer to it as Czechoslovakia

Same page, next door:

Dusek, Frank, h, b Aug 1863, 36 md 14 yrs, b Boh, Boh, Boh
" Rozalie, w, b Dec 1865, 34, M 14 yrs, 1 ch, 0 lvg, b Boh, Boh, Boh

Joseph, Frank and Rozalie came to the U.S. 1891 and Frank is naturalized. I would guess they came over together. Frank owns mortgaged farm, Joseph rents.

Go to the Fayette Co, TX GenWeb site -- http://www.txgenweb3.org/txfayette/ -- Scroll down to the box labled Search this site. Type in Motl and you'll find three matches. One is a 1912 school photo of teachers and students, two of which are named Motl.

Buried in the Ammansville Catholic Cemetery:

Motl, Anna, 25 Jun 1838 - 16 Dec 1918, born Cermne Cechach. I'm assuming that is an abbreviation for Czechoslovakia.

Do you suppose she is the matriarch of the Motls? Anyway it gives you a location to try back further in the old country on the Motls.

If his next door neighbor on the 1900 census is his half brother, then they had different fathers, but the same mother. Frank's mother is listed on his D.C., maybe she is the mother of your Joseph, also.
