I visited my dads side of the family, in West. St Mary's Cemetery to find my great grandparents and some of my grandfathers siblings. I alway thought his name was Otec and thought it was odd and was surprised to see lots of Otec's in his area. Duh, translation app..it's dad in Czech. I learned last week that they migrated into the US through Galveston and found the records of it. They were on the SS Hanover and arrived in Galveston on April 23, 1880. They brought one daughter with them, Anna, and made thier way to Abbott to an existing or to establish a family farm, where more children were born as well and my dad and his siblings. All in the same house. There's tons more history that I've learned this week and tons more to learn. Like, my granparents had paid a 5 dollar water deposit but didn't get plumbing installed in the home for several more years. I found the papers from that yesterday, and tons more cool stuff. Learnign these little hings is so cool.
