Researching: LISKA, KUPPA, KUPO
My grandfather, Joseph Liska, was born about 1867. He came to the US about age 12 to join an older brother who was already here. Apparently they were tailors. My grandfather was very proud of the fact that he had made suits for President Grover Cleveland, so I believe he may have been in the Buffalo,NY area before going on to Chicago. In Chicago, my grandfather worked at the Morton-Barry Co., at 3300 West Twenty-third St., as a tailor. My grandmother, Mary (Kuppa or Kupo) Liska, came to the US about 1908. Apparently someone from Chicago had paid her fare in exchange for her working for them a set amount of time. I know she came into the port of Baltimore, MD. She met my grandfather in Chicago and married about 1910 or 1911. My mother, Blanche Liska, was born in Chicago Nov. 21, 1912. When my mother was about 6 months old they left Chicago and moved to Tyler, Texas, where my Uncle Joe was born. Later they moved on to Pine Bluff, Arkansas where my grandfather, Joseph Liska, was a tailor for many years until his death in 1937. I believe my grandmother had a least one brother although I have no idea what his name was. My great- grandmother's name was Katerin Kuppa or Kupo and her husband was Jan Kuppa or Kupo. Grandmother always told me the name sounded like Cooper. I would appreciate any information.

Wencel Blazek and Johanna (Zastoupil) came to Amercia with their three daughters in 1867 on the ship Weser. They arrived in New York in June of 1867 and then moved to Wisconsin. They settled temporarily in Watertown before moving to Oakdale, (Monroe Co.). They traveled with a Zastoupil family, who I believe were Johanna's brother's. The three daughters names were Johanna, Thersia, and Matilda. Reports indicate the family came from the town of Landsberg, Austria (Bohemia). However, I have been unable to locate the town or what the name of the town is today. I believe they came from an area of Bohemia that was referred to as Silesia. Early research lead me to the current day Gorsa Soski, Poland. But after searching many records, I am now fairly sure that is not the Town they came from. If anyone has any leads as to where the Blazek family came from in Boemia, I would like to hear from you.

I remember going to a apple farm they had in a suburb of Cleveland Ohio called at the time Brecksville,Independence, or Seven Hills and that suburb today would probably be the same, just not sure which one. My father had a sister who married James Michalak who owned a bike store on a corner Broadway not sure of the side street name accross from Grabski Ford and 1/2 block away from the well known Jack Frost Donuts. Anyone knowing the George Kahoun family that had the orchard might be a start for me to follow back with my Father and Grandfather. My Grandparents died in 1957,58 or 59 both a year apart and in that 3yr span. My Mother Estelle is still living at the age of 80 and my Father passed away in 1992.My Mother dont remember much unfortunately or doesnt know. I also know my Grandparents did come from Bohemia. Anyone with any ifo on the Kahoun name and in the Cleveland Ohio area please contact me.
