I have recently begun researching this particular Dopita family. Joseph Dopita of Rooks
Co., Kansas was my great-grandfather. There were 10 Dopita immigrants from Bohemia who
arrived in the US on 12 Jun 1876, four adults and six children. The adults were: Johann
and Theresia, and Thomas and Catherine. The children were: Anna, Cathareina, Francisca,
Franz, Josef, Cathrine. It has been difficult for me to sort out the children but
I've been told that Thomas was Joseph's father and according to one census report,
Thomas and Catherine had Frank (Franz) and Joseph (Josef) listed as their sons. However,
this doesn't tie in to your information even though I'm sure that it is the same
I believe that Johann (John) and Thomas may have been brothers and that Joseph may have
been a nephew of John's. Joseph Dopita was raised in Omaha, NE and later moved his
family to Kansas. My grandfather (Joseph's son) was born in Omaha but I don't
know the relationship to Mary Dopita Nestrjil.
I hope this helps and please resond if you have any additional information that can help
me in my search.
