Any clue where in Bohemia he came from? Czech records for the 19th century are pretty good but without narrowing it down further it becomes the proverbial needle in the haystack...

Not really, the only thing I can tell you is he married Franciska Becker and the family food is Kolatchkas....  Even 2 generations later they were speaking 'German' at home.  But Minnesota was heavily Czech at the time....  I have his father as Frederick, but Alabert is also a possibility.  I know that seems random, but if it helps.

Thanks for the info.
