Jerry, it appears that my great-greats and greats made it to
Nebraska by about 1880. I am interested in any and all Slepicka
and Chicken families in that area. I believe that some are
buried at the Bohemian (Big Blue?) Cemetery in Wilber, I have
just received this information, a bit more is coming through now.
But I am not selective at this moment since the Slepicka family
seems to all be connected at this point. I am guessing
they owned property and there may be probate records and someone
has indicated cemetery records are available through the town
clerk. The family is Catholic and if the Diocese has archives
there, there also would be records.

If you have suggestions to make about research in Nebraska, please
do so. My research til now has primarily focused on Chicago, it
may be that I have been trawling Illinois waters when this family
actually went on to Nebraska in about 1880.

Anything you might help me with would be sincerely appreciated.

Below are the names I know from the 1870 Illinois Census, my
grandfather is Michael Slepicka. He and my grandmother, Anna
(Hruska), actually were in Minneapolis by about 1882. It appears
that the other members of the Slepicka family may have headed to
Nebraska while my grandparents chose Minneapolis.

Many many thanks for help and suggestions here!

Elaine
