Belleville Telescope Artical on John Washichek - information on Johin Washickek Asked for In...
information on Johin Washickek Asked for In Letter June 11,1982 Information Department: I am currently researching my family tree and requesting information on past and present family members. My Great-Grandfather, John Washichek (Jan Vasicek, old country name) moved to Munden around 1881 from Wisconsin. He lived there with his family and possibly his father, Wenzel, from 1881 to 1893. According to the information passed down, John Washichek immigrated to the U.S. from Czechoslovakia around 1859 and eventually moved to Munden. His family owned a large general store which also contained the U.S. Post Office, which was run by my Great Aunt Joise Washichek (Mrs. Joseph Morey). He was supposedly very active in the community and prospered quite well, until a fire destroyed everything he had worked so hard for. In approximately 1898, after the fire, he and his family moved to Seminole, Okla. If you have any information on the family past or present I would be interested in receiving it. My home address is: Richard J. Washichek 523 Blossom Lane Redondo Beach, CA 90278 Sincerely, Richard J. Washichek
