Wow, Michelle, how bizarre. And that's not the first time it's happened either. :V

Wikitree researched New England Settlers. This was a collaboration. If you look up Capt. Abraham (Van) Kuykendall Sr., you will find his wives as: Elizabeth Fidler, 2nd wife Burleson, 3rd wife Bathsheba. There is a historical marker placed by The Abraham Kuykendall Chapter of DAR. It states Pioneer from NY to PA, to NC. The marker also stats Corporal Corbins Troops, Revolutionary War.

Hi Michelle,

That is my fault I wasn't clear. I was asking about Peter's passenger record because he was not in the 1900 Domazlice Census records. However, I found him listed as the godfather for his nephew in 1893 where he is listed as living in Praze/Prague (Smichove). This makes me think that he never came to the US unless it was just for a short visit. So there seems to be no major reason to look for him in the passenger lists anymore.

Hi Michelle, I just wanted to let you know that I discovered a note on the birth record of Peter's nephew, Jakub Kaufner, and he is listed in Praze in Smichove as 1893 so he may not be in the Passenger records after all. http://portafontium.cz/iipimage/30061371/domazlice-77_4021-n?x=-8&y=99&w=496&h=185

Hi Michelle, I believe that Peter would have made it sometime between 1887 and 1892 as that is when his brother's came into the US. It may have been as early as 1881 but I feel like it would have more likely been late 1880s. It might help to tell you it would either be the Port of Baltimore or the Port of New York (most likely) I also don't think he was married at the time.

That's all I can think of now but please ask me any other questions you need. Thank and good luck with school!

Hi Michelle, I hope you re doing well. I was wondering if you could look for Peter Hruska Hruska-103 in your copies of Leo Baca's Czech Passenger Record. Thank you and have a good day!

I'm not saying to remove it from Austrian history but to put it there, because it belongs there. Besides the Czech Roots it is also linked to "Austria" which is being deleted. The link should be Category: Austrian History.

If you add me to the trust for Space:Crown Lands of Austrian Empire, I'll take care of it. Thanks
