Looking for Chicago Cooke County relatives of my grandfather Frank Ondrovik [FO](b. 1/18/1890, Znovy, Czech; d.1/21/1973, Belleville, MI). His Father, Josef Ondrovcek and Mother Catherine Knotek lived in Znovy, Czech & Austria, Vienna) and relatives of his wives, Martha, Antonio and Hildegard.
...[FO] Immigrated 1908 from Vienna to Chicago, IL to live with half-brother Anton Ondrovek. He had two older half-brothers; Johann & Franz Ondrovcek who had previously immigrated for a short time to US (Chicago, I think) , then, returned to Vienna, settling to farm in Breitstettin, Austria. Johann's ganddaughter Mitzi Macher lives in Breitstettin.
...About 1913-1914, in Chicago or Detroit, [FO] married my grandmother, Martha Ochaba (b.1897 in Vienna & d. 2/1919, Detroit, MI; a brother, Augustus Ochaba lived in Detroit & had 2 children named Joe and Helen) & moved to Detroit, MI. They had One son, Frank Ondrovik, Jr (b. 4/3/1918, Detroit, MI; d. 11/20/97, Gainesville, TX) .
...[FO] married 2nd wife, Antonio Yakos in Ohio or MI 1921-1927. They had One Son, Joseph Ondrovik (b. 10/23/1923, Detroit, MI).
... [FO] married 3rd wife in 1928; Hildegard Nowy (b. 8/21/1906 Vienna, d. 4/3/1987 Gainesville, TX) daughter of Frank Nowy & Veronica Ondrovcek; sister of Maria Nowy Kohlheimer, Vienna).
...Anton Ondrovek and wife Theresa Motica & 3 children Anna, Mary and Theresa lived in Ney, Ohio. Daughter Theresa lived in Detroit near Mt Olivet Cemetary.
