obec LUTOVÁ na Třeboňsku.
Jakub Stech, owner of the business, is a descendant from a common ancestor
having the same name Jakub Stech, 1781 - ????, from Lutova 25. The
ancestor, Jakub, had a daughter, Katarina Stechova 1818 - ???? born in
Lutova 25. She had a brother, Jakub Stech, 1824 -1896, born in Lutova 25. I
am wondering if this Jakub Stech owned the business, or had he a son, also,
by the name of Jakub? I was in Lutova in 2008, and Lutova 25 seems to have
fallen in disrepair. I am not sure if the house pictured in deska7799 is
actually Lutova 25. If it is the same one, then some modifications have
Katerina Stechova married Josef Bednar of Lutova 7 in 1837, and from that
marriage was born my great grandfather, Jan Bednar, 1844 - 1889, who came to
Texas is 1887. Josef Bednar died about 1857, and Katerina married an unknown
Snokhous, and that marriage produced a son by the name of Frantisek
Snokhous, 1862-1912, who also came to Texas. Half brothers, Frantisek and
Jan, settled near the City of West in Texas- a large Czech community. The
grandson of Frantisek, Raymond Snokhous, is currently the Honorary Consul
General of the Czech Republic for the State of Texas. I wish I knew more of
ancestors from Lutova, but the records of Lutova from 1849 are locked away
in the Municipality of Trebon. David Schroeder
