Hello. Thank you to those who are trying to help me with my research. The
only info I have on relatives from Chelsea, Tama, Iowa:
Frank REESE b. 1871 in Chelsea, IA. Died 1941 in Marshalltown, IA
Do not know parents (except that they were born in Bohemia) or siblings.
Mary KROLIK b. 1874 in Chelsea, IA. Died 1946 in Marshalltown, IA
Do not know parents (except that they were born in Bohemia). Know of two
sisters: Fannie and Rosie who both moved to Marshalltown, IA, year unknown.
Frank and Mary married about 1897(location unknown), and by the 1900-1920
census', were living in Marshalltown, Iowa.
On the 1880 census for Otter Creek, Tama County, IA, shows a John and Katie
KROLIK with daughter Mary, aged 10. The age is incorrect (since Mary was born
in 1874), but as was suggested, perhaps the census taker made a mistake.
The parents are listed as born in Bohemia, so this is a possibility.
With Frank REESE being such a common name, I don't hold out alot of hope of
finding his parents. But was hoping KROLIK was easier to tract.
Thank you again for all of your help.
