a) Came to America at New York in November of 1864 with his wife and five children. One daughter had been married in Bohemia and also came to America at the same time. This was Frances who was married to John Krizenesky, also known as Johan Krizenecky.nnFiled for naturalization 31 October 1868.nnThey farmed near Grimms, WI (Manitowoc County)nnDied of Cystitis, age 78. According to death certificate: "Parents names unknown"nnVariant spellings: Vondracek, Wandrachik, Vondrakova, Vanderchik, Wandrachek, Wondraczek.nnThe fact that Albert and his wife, Frances, were both born in Bohemia, and they were married there makes it difficult to find if they had any brothers or sisters and what their parents' names were. Both court house death certificates say "Parents names unknown." Since that, we have found death reports in the archives of the Green Bay Diocese that list their parents' names as listed above. Albert's parents were Jacob and Magdalena Vondracek. Frances' parents were John Brazda and Anna Doubek.nnAlbert and Frances are buried in the St. Mary cemetery on Menasha Street in Reedsville. Their tombstones are matching and side by side, with a metal cross on each. They are inscribed in Bohemian "Here with God is resting Albert and Frances Vondrachek".nnListed as Woytech Wondracek on internet: Country of origin, Bohemia; Birth date, 1813; Port of entry, New York; Date of entry, Nov 1864; Date of filing, Oct 31, 1868.
