      Researching: VASICEK, WASHICHEK, RICHENCHEKY
      I am researching these surnames. Jan Vasicek (John Washichek) born 1849 in Humpolec, Bohemia. His father Wenzel and two brothers came to the USA sometime before 1860 and went from New York to Chicago According to family history. I have found them in the 1870 and 1880 Blue River, Grant Co., Wisconsin census. They went from Wisconsin to Munden Kansas, then to Seminole, Oklahoma in 1898. In1905 John moved to Shawnee, Oklahoma. John was married to Theresa Richecheky born 1854 in Caslav, Bohemia. I would like any information about this family, particularly on Wenzel and the other two sons. I have information on John and Theresa from 1870 on to share.
