I am researching the Mahlik and Mleziva Families. They came from Domazlice, Tlumacov, Mrakov, and Pilsen area in Bohemia.
Andrew Mahlik was born in Tlumacov, Bohemia November 30, 1837. His wife, Mary Vitek was born February 2, 1845 also in Tlumacov, Bohemia. Andrew's parents are Martin Mahlik and Mary Hallada. Martin Mahlik died March 8, 1843. Martin's wife then married Joseph Cisler from Straz village on November 7, 1843 and they had four children, Magaret, Mateje, Anna and Mary Cisler.
Andrew Mahlik at the age of 31, his wife Mary Vitek and their 1 year and 11 month old daughter Katherine came to America on the ship Kosmos and landed in New York December 24,1868. They settled in Pilsen Wisconsin, which is about 20 miles east of Green Bay Wisconsin. The four Cisler children also came to America and initially settled in and around the Pilsen area in Kewaunee County, Wisconsin.
According to the 1900 census George Mleziva and his wife Margaretha Mach came to the USA in 1856. George was born July 14, 1810 in Mwdaken, No. 37, Bohemia (now known as Mrakov). Margaretha was born November 6, 1825 in Kleinzuzem, a district of Pilsen, Bohemia. The parents of George Mleziva are Anton Mleziva and Dorothea Kralowetz. Margaretha Mach's parents are Mateg Mleziva and Eva Kralovec. And the parents of Eva Kralovec are Joseph Kralowec and Anna Koit.
Another branch of my family tree goes back to Adam Vochoc (Wochos) born in 1776 and wife Katerina Koutnikova born in 1779 in Bohemia.
I am also researching Andre Lamal who along with his wife Johanna and 10 month old son Andrew, came to America in 1856. They settled in Red River, Wisconsin in an area called Aux Flamands (the Flemish Settlement) where he farmed.
On November 24, 1862, at the age of 36, Andre' was drafted to fight in the Civil War. He was in the Wisconsin Military Infantry at Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 31 Dec. 1862. He was in the 34th Infantry. He died on July 15, 1863. He is buried somewhere near Memphis Tennessee. I am trying to find his burial site.
The following is an article from the book "Early History Of Kewaunee County" written in 1922 & 1923 by George W. Wing. Mr Wing when under 20 years of age, became the first editor of Algoma Record in 1873.
In the fall of 1864, Bohemian emigration to the country set in large volume. Every Saturday, the weekly steamer deposited large piles of green boxes and mysterious looking bundles upon the pier and bevies of folk in a strange habit and talking a strange tongue walked our streets. They soon disappeared, however into the forests and began making homes. Carl Jones, editor of the Slavie, a Bohemian newspaper, visited the country in 1864, investigated its agricultural resoures, and was largely responsible for the coming here of many of his countrymen.

- Mahlik's Family Picture from Bohemia (187 KB)
On the back of this picture Lillian Mahlik O'Konski wrote: "I'm sure my grandpa Andrew Mahlik is the youngest boy here in this picture."
My best guess then is that if Andrew is the youngest boy in the picture he would be about 9 years old and the picture would have been taken in 1846. Andrew would be the boy in the lower right. Next to him to your left is his grandfather Christoph Halada (58), grandmother Katerina (Tichacek) Halada (58) and great grand mother Katerina (Wottawa) Tichatek (83). In the back row are 4 girls and a boy. Three of the girls are are dressed in white blouses, this may mean they are single. The girl on the upper left may be Mary (Halada) Mahlik (29), Andrew's mother. The other three girls and the boy could be siblings of Mary Halada Mahlik. I am going to try and find out if there were any more siblings.
