I hope your day is going well! I have another question for you all! I have been going back through some of the sources that I found on my great-great grandfather, August Hruska, and found some things that don't quite add up to me, especially after actually finding some Czech census records that include him in them.
The one that I am wondering about now, whether I should add it back in or not, is the Baltimore arrival record from 1887 where he came with an 11-year old daughter(?), Anna.
Here is the link: https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QV9F-Z12S
This seems to contradict the 1880 Czech Census record that shows August with wife, Katarina and children Matej and Josef. If Anna was here than it would make sense as she would be the oldest.
Next we have the arrival record of Katerina and the rest of the family including young Jiri who incidentally dies before they make it to Baltimore. It stands to reason that if Katerina is bringing the family here, either August is established enough to bring them over or he is back working on the farm while they get out.
Finally, the evidence pointing against this not being right because of the presence of a daughter, especially one as old as Anna,is that in the 1900 US census Anna is not found and it says that Katerina bore 11 children of whom 3 are dead. Besides Jiri, two other children passed on before him one was Maria who was born in1888 and died by 1889 and an August Charles born about 1879 and died before the 1880 Czech census.
Does that make sense? Should I look for more evidence? I cannot decide.
All help would be appreciated.
