Researching: OPELA
Jan Opela, DOB 5/1844, came to Lavaca County Texas in 1873. The derivation of the name Opela and his birthplace are a mystery, thus far. In Palkovice, Moravia, CR, there are some cemetary plots with the Opela name. I have been unable to find evidence of immigration records or ship logs for he and his 2 small children who accompanied him to Texas. He may have lived in Horovice, Bohemia, CR, prior to his trip.

Researching primarily Elsik (and derivations thereof), also Matcek, Kocurek and Mikeska. Great grandfather, Tomas Elsik, emigrated to Texas from Moravia, ca. 1854. My grandfather, Tomas, was one year old. My great grandmother settled in Burleson County, Texas. But there are no further records of GGF Tomas. There may have been a divorce, he returned to the Czech Republic, remarried, and traveled back to Texas, perhaps to the vicinity of Ennis. Branches of the Elsik family were in Hostalkova, Zadverice, etc., primarily in Moravia. There are at least 4 branches of the Elsik family in Texas. We wonder how many more are in Bohemia and Moravia?
