HISTORY & BIOGRAPHY

Virginia Dolan: Frank Tomek's birthday was Christmas Eve, and every year Grandma Anna (Zak) Tomek always had the same birthday dinner for him: Baked fish with gingerbread gravy. Because he was the oldest son, he inherited the family estate and money. But he gave it up to his younger brother, Anton, because he felt sorry for his brother. Then Frank Tomek left Bohemia to make his way in the U.S.A. When he was older, he looked like Mark Twain. He loved to read and was a quiet, shy man.
- - - - - - - - - -
"Novo Mesto" means New Place or New Town, my grandmother once told me. My grandpa frank Cyril Tomek was the oldest son & would've been exempt from soldiering since he ran the farm. His younger brother would be called by Empereor Franz Joseph, and Grandpa didn't want him to go, so he gave the farm to him and emigrated to the U.S.A. (I think he must have loved his brother very much). He came over when he was around 21 years of age.

[Letter written by Virginia Fisher Dolan to Georgina Tomek Lubking]
Dearest Ina,
I know this next week will be dreadfully hard on you and mother. Grandma was such a darling you'll miss her dreadfully. I keep thinking of her sitting in her rocker always asking for some mending or sewing to do for one--and how sweet and cheerful she always was. Looking back I can't remember hearing her get cross once or fuss--even when her feet hurt her or she was tired. I hope that I will inherit some of her wonderful cheerfulness of disposition and "sweetness and light." I know I find it had to extoll aloud all the fine things she was to each and everyone in her family, but I hope that her character has impressed some of its fine attributes on my character that she might be as prouod of us as we are of having had her as "head of our clan." I am so happy that grandma lived long enuff for her great-grandchildren to enjoy her and become acquainted with her and for her to be able to say, as she did, with such pride, that she had great-grandchildren.
As the years pass, we are able to judge fineness in character, and I think grandma really had a wonderful personality--one that we can all be proud of sharing.
Love, Virgi

HISTORY & BIOGRAPHY

AH, YES, I REMEMBER! (Autobiographical sketch by Ina Lubking)
My very first recollection of being alive was that Mama held me when I was sick. (I apparently was subject to bronchitis quite often.) Mama had a lady visitor, and we were sitting around the heating stove which was almost in the center of the dining room at 718 W. 18th St. At times there was a bed in this room, possibly when one of us was ill, as I was at that time. There were two bedrooms in the five-room flat. Each bedroom had a window facing a brick wall of the two-story building next door, with about a twelve-inch air space. On the first floor of that building was a saloon. In the winter time no windows were ever opened.
In the dining room was a square oak table and chairs, a couch, and an oak dresser with two "huge" (for me) white frosted glass vases with fluted tops, into which went old mail and other sundry items. The vases had gaily painted flowers and were a joy to behold (possibly a wedding gift).
I remember being examined by a doctor at various times. The parlour during the winter was a veritable refrigerator, and was hardly ever occupied, and it was like braving the outdoors to go through that room to the front bedroom, which was, for a time, occupied by Mr. Konrad. Later we three girls slept there, in feather beds in the winter, and were never cold. The bedroom had a clothes closet under the stairs, without a door, and was a good place for storying things and for playing hide-and-go-seek. For a long time after he left, Mr. Konrad's trunk was still there.
Another time I remember being held by my mother, who again had a lady visitor, and we sat in the dining room. They were talking about Papa, who was in Europe at the time and expected home very soon. Mother must have told me that Papa had to go on a train and on a ship to get there, because for years afterward, whenever I heard a train whistle, I would think of Europe and Grandma, and my imagination would roam to far-off lands.
Then the big day arrived: Papa came home from the station in an express wagon with his sister, her husband, and their very young daughter (the Huleks), and all their baggage, no doubt consisting of a lot of feather beds, as that was the most important part of a Bohemian girl's trousseau. They moved into the rear apartment above ours, with a kitchen, a parlor, and a bedroom. Entrance to the apartment was through the kitchen from the hallway.
This hall also gave access to the front apartment of two rooms; also a ladder which led to the attic. How we loved that attic! At one time Papa had pigeons in the loft, and I used to love to go there with Mama when she fed them. I don't remember ever eating them, however, but no doubt that was the purpose in raising them.
The front apartment had one large room with a bedroom. It had an iron sink and a pantry, as did the other apartment. How we used to love to "play house" there when it was vacant, and when it was occupied, we used to like to visit the tenants, if they were agreeable to having us around. I did get around, and all over the neighborhood, there is no doubt about that.
Our homes were 781 W. 18th St., 1530 W. 22nd St., 896 So. Hamlin Ave., 1515 So. Hamlin Ave., and 527 Clarence Ave., Oak Park. I attended five grammar school. No wonder I was considered dumb, at least so I considered myself. The schools were Cooper, Cooper Annex at Ashland & 17th St., Spry, Howland, and Lawson.
I remember playing in the vacant lot next door to us on 18th Street before a three-story building was erected there. The wooden sidewalk was high above the lot level. The lot was always full of trash, and it was fun to see what we could find. One of my great thrills was looking on the beams under the wooden sidewalk for pennies hidden there by a half-wit son of the saloon keeper next door. His name was Frank. He was either the son or nephew of the man. The man was at that time living with his housekeeper, who had a daughter with whom I used to play. I used to spend a lot of time in their kitchen, where there was always an odor of fish cooking; food was forever cooking on the stove, for they served a free lunch with drinks, and even a full dinner for a few cents, as was the custom in those days. The meat counter was always a rather high affair, coming to about chest level with a man. In the summer time a fan (when there was electricity) was twirling above the counter; otherwise it was covered with a cotton netting to keep off the many flies. The saloon keeper's name was Sherman (pronounced Sharman). I remember I could always tell when it was Saturday. There would be a general cleaning up of the windows of the saloon and the sidewalk, and the huge brewery trucks rolled barrels of beer into the cellar, and (in the summer) ice was delivered. It was then we would hop on the back step of the wagon and help ourselves to pieces of ice, which we loved to suck. The ice man wore a leather cape over one shoulder. He would take a huge chunk of ice in his ice prongs and swing it over his shoulder, or if the ice was going into the cellar, they would roll down a specially built ladder. In fact, most of the store keepers washed their windows on Saturday.
In the winter we children used to press pennies against the heavily frosted window panes, and Mama pointed out to us the beautiful leaves Jack Frost left on our windows. Some times we would press our lips and noses against the frosted panes, but not for long. If we wanted to see outside, we would breathe hard on the glass and make a peep hole. Snows were very deep in those winters. Tunnels were made in front of the homes to get across the street, and when it was not too cold, we would be out playing in the snow, shoveling it, and getting wet, then coming home to sit around the heating stove to dry out.
After the building went up next door, there were a lot of tenants to pester us. They used to throw trash into our yard, which we in turn had to pick up and put in our garbage box. This was a huge wooden affair, which Papa made, with lids at both ends into which went everything. Ashes would be thrown in piles in the alleys, which were cleaned only before an election. The stench from the alley in the summer time was awful. In summer the boxes were full of maggots. During election it was a great sport for the young hoodlums in those days to burn the wooden garbage bins. Since they were too large to move, they would burn on the spot, and it was touch and go. I remember Papa had several set-to's with these hoods, for they were very destructive, but they only laughed at him. One game they used to play, which we dreaded, was "Run sheep run," but which we called "Run cheap run." They would run through our yard at all times of the night and do whatever damage they could. Their favorite sport was knocking down Chick Sales, but ours was a triple affair, so it was quite rigid.
The space under our high wooden sidewalk always intrigued us. We never knew who might be hiding there. It was damp and dark inside, and when we did have the courage to go there, or when Mama was around, we would take a peep and see sickly looking weeds or toadstools growing. At times it was quite muddy there since water and melting snow would leak through the cracks of the sidewalk. Mama feared some tramp might be hiding there. At night it was a scary place. There was a rather long, narrow porch from the sidewalk to our front hall, which was a nice place to spend a summer evening. Sometimes we would have a swing on this porch, but that was when we were very small.
Across our sidewalk was a wooden fence, on which we children used to love to sit. One summer evening there were just too many sitters on the fence, and it gave way, and I with it. I don't remember if anyone else hit the bottom, but I did, and it knocked me cold. Mother and Dad were quite concerned with me, but I finally came to. So-o-o-o, if you think there is something queer about your sister Ina, charge it to that fall.
Of a summer evening, when the family was out on the porch watching the crowds go by (also the horse cars), we used to tie a piece of watermelon rind to a string and throw it over the electric wire, then catch it & tie a lantern to it. We made the lanterns out of paper shoe boxes. We would cut fancy holes in them and cover them with colored tissue paper, then put a candle inside, light it, and up it went. Then we would play with the string, up and dow she would go until the candle burned out or the box set on fire. Whatta sport!
In the new building there was a shoe store, owned by a Bohemian Jew named Kapper. His method of displaying shoes was in vogue then. It consisted of four boards nailed into a sort of standing box-like affair, covered with paper. The shoe laces of the shoes would be tied together and hung on a nail on this box-like affair. These adorned the sidewalk not only around the building, but on the outer edge of the sidewalk, much like old Maxwell Street. Doubtless it was an old country custom. Kapper carried a very cheap line of shoes. Mama used to say they were paper shoes, and we never traded there. They had a baby born with two thumbs. He looked just like a monkey, but he did not live very long.
At Christmas time we had a tree with real candles, but not very many ornaments. We used to buy pink colored popcorn at a certain store on 18th St. east of Blue Island Ave. (north side of street). This we would string and hang on the tree, but usually it was eaten before the holidays were over. Papa used to buy the nuts and candy that went into our stockings and used to leave it on a shelf in the back hall. Our stockings were filled twice: Once on St. Nicholas (Dec. 6) and again on Christmas Eve. Our grocer's son got coal in his stocking one year because he had been a bad boy. We used to love to get up early those mornings to see what Santa Claus had left us, and we were never disappointed. The only thrill that can equal that was when I married John.
Our aunts and uncles were very stingy. Though they were far better off financially than we were, they seldom gave us anything at Christmas time. I think it was that very thing that made me want to give our children a happier memory of their Aunt Ina, than I have of my own.
And this brings me to our grocer, Mr. Blazek. They had four girls and two boys. The oldest daughter, Mary, kept house with the mother. She was a young lady then. Joe, the oldest son, worked for a wholesale grocery concern, Steele Wedells. He died of TB just before he was to be married. Rose, the next oldest daughter, worked in the store. She was a very pleasant person, and later married Mr. Blaha, a mail carrier. The father and mother also worked in the store. In the winter time they used to be dressed as though they were going outdoors. It was so cold, the windows were always heavily frosted. They did a good business. Their youngest son was Frank, who went to school and also helped the father. The two youngest girls were our friends, the youngest being my special friend. It was she who first called me "Ina," and the name has stuck ever since.

They arrived on the ship named Westphalia.
See website for ship information:

Ship Information:

WESTPHALIA 1868 / ATLANTICA 1887 / PROVINCIA DI SAO PAULO 1888 / MENTANA 1889 / SUD AMERICA 1891
The WESTPHALIA was built in 1868 by Caird & Co., Greenock for Hamburg America Line. She was a 3,158 gross ton ship, length 339.9ft x beam 40ft, one funnel, two masts, iron construction, single screw and a speed of 12 knots. There was accommodation for 90-1st, 130-2nd and 520-3rd class passengers. Launched on 24th Jun.1868, she sailed from Hamburg on her maiden voyage to Southampton and New York on 16th Sep.1868. She commenced her last voyage from Hamburg to Havre and New York on 28th Apr.1875 before being laid up. In 1878 she was rebuilt with two funnels and compound engines, and on 30th Jul.1879 she resumed the Hamburg - Havre - New York service. She started her last voyage to New York on 19th Dec.1886 and in 1887 was sold to the British company, H.F.Swan of Newcastle who re-engined her and renamed her ATLANTICA. In 1888 she went to Gazzo & Schiafino of Italy and was renamed PROVINCIA DI SAO PAULO. In 1889 she was resold to La Veloce of Italy and was renamed MENTANA and was further renamed SUD AMERICA later in 1891. She was finally scrapped in Genoa in 1901. [North Atlantic Seaway by N.R.P.Bonsor, vol.1, p.390] [Merchant Fleets in Profile, vol.4 Hamburg America Line by Duncan Haws.]

[I no longer believe this to be the father of Franz and Josef Zajicek. I now believe that I mistakenly showed his father as being on the same immigration ship as Wenzel. I now know that Wenzel arrived on August 16, 1881 on the Westphalia, and Josef arrived on March 11, 1881 on the Donau. They may still be related, but I still need to prove it.] This seems to be confirmed by the information listed in Vaclav's Obituary from 1896. It lists son Vaclav and Marie, Antonie and Marketa as children.

Address at place of death was 675 Groom Street, Chicago, Ill. (as per death certificate)

In 2009, Gertrude Blecha thought that Adele's husband had left her early in their marriage and never returned. I'm now thinking that this may have been her second husband. I believe her first husband, Nedjl died in the 1920's. In the 1957 obituary for Camille Copeland, her sister, she's going by the name Nedjl again, but we can see from the 1930 census that she had remarried to Samuel Bukurov. I suspect that Bukurov may have left.

This is perplexing: I do not think that this is our Antonia because it shows her with an 82 year-old lady who is listed as her mother, but the Mother (Mary) is shown as having had 4 children with only 2 living. That is inconsistent with what we know about Anny. Also this family immigrated in 1870.

Is this her? There is a Micholis Lapina mentioned in Barbora Lang Zajicek's obituary in 1922. Micholis is the same as Nicholas. Same year of immigration and birth year is about right, but no mention earlier of this family.

ZAJICEK, Josef A. (I00033)
 
47 5 Oct 1894 THE CHAMPION WEIGHT THROWER OF THE WORLD.

Death of a Great Irish Athlete.
The death is announced of William Real, New Pallas, County Limerick, which sad event took place at his residence on August 16. W. Real, Pallas Green, will be well remembered by athlete as holder of several world's records for putting heavy weights. He was one of the Gaelic team that travelled to America in September, 1888, and he gave exhibitions in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, and other cities, where the team went, but the Americans fought shy of the Limerick giant. At pushing any weight from 28 lbs. upwards he was the best man ever seen, even J. S. Mitchell could not approach him in this class of competition. He won the Gaelic championships at putting the 28 lbs., 42 lbs., and 56 lbs. three or four years in succession. The following world's records stand to his name:—
At limerick on June 18, 1884, he put a 42 lbs. weight, with follow, 28 feet 1 inch.
On the same ground on August 6, 1888. he put 56 lbs. weight, with follow, 23 feet inches.
On the Manhatton A.C. Grounds, New York City, on October 20, 1888, he put the 56-lbs. 22 feet 11 inches.
At Philadelphia. U.S.A., on October 25th, 1888, he put a 25-lbs. weight, with follow, 36 feet 8& inches.
At Kilkenny on August 27, 1889, he put the 28 lb. weight, with follow, 35 feet 1 inch.
All these puts are far beyond all known records. The nearest approach to Real's efforts with the 56-lb. is W. J M. Barry's put of 19 feet 3½ inches at Mallow, on May 1, 1885, while next best to his 28 lb. record is 34 feet by the marvellous Canadian George R. Gray, at Dunshaughlin on July 8, 1888. and Dr. J. C. Daly claims second to him with the 42-lb., which he put 27 feet 4 inches at Limerick, June 18, 1888. Real stood in or about 6 feet 1 inch in height, had enormous chest expansion, was erect as a spear, and had somewhat sloping shoulders of huge width. He was unassuming almost to a fault, and surely never made an enemy. He was in a poor state of health for some time, and died in the prime of his youth, he being only 33 years of age at the time of his demise.
