As a matter of interest, the 1897 Belle Plaine Biographical Directory lists
HANOUSEK, Frank. Boiler maker at roundhouse. No 7 S Cherry. Born in
Bohemia Dec 13, 1871. Sophia Linkhart his wife was born in Tama Co IA May
30, 1875. Married Sept 26, 1893. Children: Hildred born May 21, 1895.
A connection maybe?

Like Sheila Larson, I also am looking for someone with access to the
1870 Benton County census. Both sets of my maternal great-grandparents,
Joseph and Margaret NOVAK, and Joseph and Anna HANOUSEK, lived in Belle
Plaine, IA from approximately 1865 to 1890.
I have found no records other than births of their children to
substantiate their presence there, however. I am hopeful the 1870
census might provide information. Thank you.
