This family tree has surnames Wiesner, Wiessner, Korfhage, Koukal, Freeberg, Smith and Mersy. I am researching the Koukal and Freeberg names. Thomas Wayne Koukal married Lois Anna Freeberg about 1906 in North Dakota.
Lois was born in Larimore, North Dakota, January 22,1890. Both of her parents were born in Sweden. Lois's mother Minnie died in a nursing home near Portland, Oregon in the early 1950's. Minnie was born about 1860. Lois had three brothers. Her parents separated when Lois was young. Lois is my great-grand mother and I have always known her as Lois. However I have seen her signature on the birth certificate of one of her children as Anna Lois.
Thomas Wayne Cole Koukal was born in Germany/Bohemia/Moravia/Austria. Thomas' mother is Emerewcie or Mary from Moravia. Her parents are both from Moravia. She was born May 1838 in Moravia/Bohemia. From the census records it looks like she was married in Germany/Bohemia and had four children. In 1884 Emerewcie and one of her children, Thomas Wayne, immigrated to America. Emerewcie married Frank Koukal in 1884. I am guessing that the place of marriage is Walsh County, ND. Emerewcie died May 7, 1920 and is buried in Pisek, ND.
Frank Koukal was born December 1846 in Moravia/Bohemia. He immigrated 1879 and was naturalized in Grand Forks,ND in 1881. Both of his parents are from Moravia/Bohemia. Frank died August 1923 and is buried in Pisek, ND.
