HI, Im looking for my family relatives that immigrate to USA in 1930 /-, the only think I know that they were comming from North-East Bohemia. It was quite big family (6 and more children) and the father was working originally as a baker. Their surname was Vaclavik.
I'm looking for any information on my grandparents Lola Kate(Brewer)and Albert Burton Burdick. Both of my grandparents are decease and trying find about their lifes. I know that my grandfather died in1936 in coal mine accident .Any information or facts of my family history would help me.
I did find this newspaper article published July 28, 1936 in the Ada Evening News, Ada, Oklahoma. Robert H. Brown, chief mine inspector, said in a report negligence of workmen in failing to test for evidence of gas pockets before beginnlng work resulted in an explosion which killed three men at the Buck Creek No. 11 mine at Panama. "Two machine men and a shot firer were on the 1500 foot level when the explosion occurred," said Brown, who inspected the explosion scene Monday. "A carbide lamp, being used to set off shots, apparently ignited gas in "a pocket."
Albert Burdick, Panama, and Perry Dodd and George Frame, both of Wilburton, were killed in the explosion last Saturday.
My great-grandmother M.Rutyna was born in Austria. She had a sister who lived in Poland and two brothers. One of them lived in Texas, in USA, and other in France. She left her parents with a Russian soldier Boris Firko. All this time they lived togheter in Russia. She died in the Sovet Union in Minsk. I`am searching for my relatives!
