U.S. States: Texas: Lavaca County
Searching for any information regarding Antonin PETER, born in 1850 in Frenstat, Moravia and wife, Paulina OTIPKA, born in 1840 in Moravia. They married abt. 1878 and emigrated to New York in 1891 with four sons: Rudolph BACAK/BARCAK(?) a stepson; Antone A. PETER 15; Joseph L. PETER l3; and Frank A. PETER 7 (my grandfather). Joseph changed his surname to PETERS and Frank changed his surname to PETTER. The family settled in the Fayette County, TX area. They are buried at Praha, TX.
My grandfather, Frank A. Peter/Petter married Amalie/Amelia KUPCAK, born in 1886 in Hostyn (Bluff), TX. They raised 13 children, one of which, (my father) was named Frank Petter, Jr. Some of the descendants of this family still live in the Lavaca Co. area.
Thank you, Laura Petter Pilgrim
