I have documents that show Elizabeth Morava's name was Alzbeta Morava when she came to this country from Bohemia.  she also later went by the name of "Lizzie" after she married Frank Civis in 1875.

I am looking for anything that may shed light on her family and when and how she arrived in the United States.  The first time she appears in any census information is in 1880 after she married Frantiska/Franta "Frank" Civis. She stayed in the Chicago area until 1926 when she moved to Whitehall, MI where she died in 1932.

Name: Frank Civis
   
Spouse's Name: Elisabeth Morava
   
License Type: Marriage
Event Date: 30 Jul 1875

"Illinois, Cook County Marriages, 1871-1920," index, FamilySearch 

The couple had Erwin S Civis 26 Dec 1890, Emma 05 Oct 1886, Robert John 2 Nov 1888, Matias J. 25 Sep 1892, Wenceslaus 27 Aug 1882, Anna 29 May 1881, Ottilie 15 Oct 1884, Otto 15 Oct 1884, all born in Chicago, Cook Co., IL. I did not find immigration information at familysearch.org, only marriage and children.
