Husband Paul Sulak

            AKA: Pavel Strbacka

           Died: 3 Oct 1940 - West, McLennan County, Texas
         Buried: 5 Oct 1940 - St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery, West, McLennan County, Texas

Karl Kudelniak
farmer at Halenkov
Marina his wife

Anna Janusch #89 (midwife)

2. Guardian: 18 Oct 1863, Halenkov, Moravia. Research done by the Czech National Archive shows that Paul was born in the Sulak Halenkov house #175 on August 17, 1854. Paul recorded that his birthdate was July 22, 1854. The mother was listed as Marina neé Strbackova (Strbacka). There could be a variety of explanations for the difference in birthdates: There is a custom of giving the child the name of a Saint, and the birthday celebration took place on the Saint's day; Records were poor, or hard to read; the birthdate didn't have the significance as it does today and the exact date could be lost in time.

The Archive shows Paul's mother to be Marina neé Strbackova. The custom was to give the child the mother's maiden name if the father was unlisted. Valerian Sulak, son of Paul Sulak, and Sophie Sulak, daughter of Paul, both independently verified that Paul was born Strbacka. The Czech census of 1857 noted that Paul Strbacka born in 1854 was a resident of the Sulak house #175.

Paul was a half brother to John and Anton. He was born 4 years after the death of Marina's husband. After Paul's mother passed away in 1863, Paul was likely an orphan and raised by the Sulaks. By 1872, Paul took the name of Sulak with the permission of the family.

The area was settled in the late 1840s, and the community that developed there was called Sardis. Its first school was built in 1854. A post office was established in January 1858, with John S. Bell as postmaster, but it was discontinued shrtly after the Civil War. Among the early residentshad been the Gholson brothers, Benjamin and Samuel, and the community gradually came to be called Gholson. A new post office by that name was esablished in February of 1877 with Thomas Rhodes as postmaster.IN 1890 the community had a general store and twetny-five residents.; by the mid 1890s it had grown to include two churches, a corn mill and gin, two general stores and seventy five residents.

11. Biography: 1940, McLennan County, Texas. Paul Sulak was well known for his distinctive pipe. August Sulak relates that his father (Anton J. Sulak) and Paul Sulak would sit on the porch and Paul would smoke his pipe. They would talk about the old country and the city of Frenstat came up often in their conversation.

In addition, Paul loved to hunt and took many hunting trips on horseback. He loved to hunt wild turkeys on Cummins Creek near their home in Fayette County.

Paul was a very good dancer and could dance smoothly. They would place a pan of beer on his head and, dancing, he would not spill a drop. He was a very agile person. He could climb trees, but fell out of a pear tree in his 80s and broke a rib.

In the early 1900's, Paul and Josephine provided land for a new school on their farm. The Sulak School was located near the current site of Spring Lakes Ranch in the Spring Branch area. It was one room and the teachers used to room at the Sulak home.

2. Newspaper Story: Biography of Josephine Sulak in Cechoslovak a Westky Noviny by Joseph Tydlacka, 5 Feb 1943, West, McLennan County, Texas. A lot of readers as well as the Sulak family would be very interested in reading about the immigrants from the old country from Bohemia and Moravia from long ago, came to Texas and how they lived their lives, how the beginnings of their lives were difficult. Josefina Sulak, still remembers even in her old age 85 years, surviving widow of Paul Sulak and mother to C.Y. Sulak along with his siblings a brother and sister, whose names I cannot recall. I will add their names to their mother's written history. It is not the first time in her life, the good mother and grandmother Sulak, who was born Hertousova, her birthplace was Stribec near Cesky Budejovice. While she was still a young girl in the year of 1872, many families known to her were leaving for North America and also to the state of Texas, so she decided she would leave her birthplace. The families that traveled together: Mr. Jansa, Mr. Junek, Jan Prazak and Hertous the brother of Mrs. Sulak (no first name given). After taking the train to Bremen, the met with more immigrants, Anna Hoskova and her brother Josef. Their birthplace was Bechyne in Bohemia. From Hrozenkov, Moravia was Mr. Orsak, his first name Mrs. Sulak does not recall. Also included was Pavel Kocian from Halenkov. In Bremen they boarded a sailing ship named Erna on Sept 8, 1872. The journey was long and sad, they spent 3 months on the ship until they reached Galveston on Dec. 8. When they came to the island of Cuba they were caught up in a windstorm (hurricane) and took them back out to sea where they were the day before. During the storm the passengers were very frightened and thought they would die at sea. From the storm and fright many passengers were sick and several died. From among the passengers that were traveling to Baltimore and Texas a little child passed away right after the storm. He was the child of Jan Prazak and was buried at sea near the island of Cuba. After the storm they traveled to Cuba because they did not have enough food or drinkable water.

After arriving at the port of Baltimore, (note: Josephine's brother Matej Hertous emigrated in 1860- Josephine emigrated in 1872 so there is a fundamental conflict), many passengers disembarked including Mr. Hertous, the brother of the young lady, who because the mother of Mrs. Sulak, his destination was to go to Minnesota where he settled in New Prague. She stayed with the families-Jansa, Junek, Orsak, Kocian Prazak. When they arrived at Galveston, they rode a Santa Fe passenger train to Brenham. Then by wagon to the small town of Vesely (Wesley). They then settle on a farm and Mrs. Sulak, at that time them a single lady, Miss Hertousova worked on a farm owned by a Mr. Skrivanek. He was the father of Frantisek Skrivanek who lived and work in West at a drugstore. Where he lives now it is not known to the writer. In the year 1872 from Bohemia and Moravia emigrated many families and also unmarried men and women including the three Sulak brothers Pavel (Paul), Anton, Jan (John) and my father Joseph Tydlacka, their birthplace Halenkov in Hana region of Moravia. (note there is not a Halenkova in Hana, the author may have heard the incorrect info). They left their birthplace in the same year mentioned but in the summer. After arriving by train to Bremen in Germany, they boarded the ship Hannover that sailed for Galveston for cotton bales and it was a steam ship and the trip lasted only 14 days and they arrived in Galveston Sept 8 1872. Then they took a train to Columbus and took a wagon to Fayetteville where they settled. In the same year the Cepak brothers arrived from Bohemia, Matous (Matthew), Jan and Frantisek and their sister. The Cepak brothers were cousins of Paul Sulak. After arriving in Texas, they also settled near Fayetteville, Warrenton, and near Clear Creek. Their sister got married to a Pechacek in southern Texas and settled near Betlem and Vesely. The sister of the Cepak brothers met her husband in Fayetteville and was a loyal wife. Later they moved from southern Texas to McLennan county. They first placed they settled is not known to me after many years but for a long time before his death Mr. Pechacek lived with his family on a farm in Elk, 18 miles from West, his descendants life there today (continuation next issue)

Note: date of emigration collarborated with the Czech baptismal record for Josephine where it was annotated 'to Amerika: 14 August 1872'. The same kind of annotation was written on Josephine sister's, (Marie), baptismal record: 'To Amerika 14 August 1872'. The same annotation of 14 Aug 1872 was written next to the mother, Marie, of Josephine.

3. Newspaper Story: Biography of Josephine Sulak in Cechoslovak a Westky Noviny by Joseph Tydlacka, 12 Feb 1943, West, McLennan County, Texas.
Continuation of the Sulak Family:

When mother/Mrs. Sulak or at that time she was still Miss Hertous, when they arrived in Veseli near Brenham, she worked for Mr. Skrivanek, she was not homesick for her birthplace in Bohemia, in Texas in a foreign place. She was a happy person and enjoyed singing but a church was one thing that was missing. In Veseli a catholic church was not built but a Czech Moravian Brethern had built a small church building. When it so happened when she had a chance she would attend worship service with them and sang with them which made her very happy. Later she heard that in Fayetteville a young catholic priest whose name was Father Joseph Chromcik had founded a church around the Christmas holidays in 1872. She longed to go to Fayetteville to attend church. She asked her employer Mr. Skrivanek if she could borrow a horse and ladies saddle, a ladies saddle was different than for a man. Mr. Skirvanek did not prevent her from going. One pretty day before Easter in 1873, Miss Hertousova on a horse with a saddle began her journey to Fayetteville. She know that from Veseli to Fayetteville is 22 miles and the way was unknown to her, her journey would take her through a forest and several creeks which did not have bridges to cross, not even the large Cummings Creek, she was not afraid and happily rode her horse. The journey took her past the towns of Schoenau, Hogg Creek and Clear Creek when she passed Clear Creek she thought she was lost. She stopped at a farm near the road, which belonged to Josef Kocurek. She was glad to speak in Czech to get directions to Fayetteville. She continued and was frightened when crossing the creeks, especially the big Cummings Creek. When she arrived at the church in Fayetteville, Father Chromcik was not there at the rectory but was visiting a farm not far from the church, the farmer's name was Donat. After a time Father Chromcik arrived from his visit and his meeting with Miss Hertousova was warm and friendly, he took her to see the church which was a poor little church dedicated to St. John the Baptist. Inside there was only a small altar, benches made of oak planks, Cyril Karasek had a big saw to cut wooden planks. Sitting on these benches was not very comfortable during the mass you could fall asleep and find yourself on the floor because there was not a back to the seat. It was a very different expericnece looking at this church from her church in her homeland. It is important to mention that the early immigrants had to go through in Texas and other states. They were able to build a bigger church as time went on, also businesses. At the time the rectory for Father Chromcik was a log cabin with a small room. He gratefully lived in that cabin and looked forward to when he wouldl have better accommodations and it came to pass. The good mother and grandmother Mrs. Sulak remembers that later on the year 1873 in Veseli, Betlem, Fayetteville and Warrenton and other places in southern Texas developed a bad epidemic of yellow fever which caused many deaths and how she walked four miles to care for the sick. She did not get sick from the nursing she had to do but also she helped with putting the dead into their coffins. Funeral/burial services were not available, coffins were able to be purchased from larger towns near railroads so the coffins had to made at home if they were too far from the nearest town or railroad. The immigrants helped each other out as much as they were able. A young single farmer Pavel Sulak helped at Veseli and Betlehem. At the beginning of 1873 he left Fayetteville to Betlem where he found work for an Anglo-American farmer name Allcorn. He was not too far from Veseli, and it happened he met Miss Hertousova later became engaged and in the year 1875 they became faithful husband and wife and their marriage was blessed by Father Chromcik in the small chapel in Fayetteville.

4. Newspaper Story: Biography of Josephine Sulak in Cechoslovak a Westky Noviny by Joseph Tydlacka, 5 Mar 1943, West, McLennan County, Texas. (Continuation of the life story of Mrs. Sulak):

Mrs. Sulak remembers that when she left her ancestral home, her sister wanted to come as well but she could not, she had to stay with her parents. (Note: the church record has Josephine and her sister Marie leaving Stribrec on the same date as well as their mother, Marie). Also her uncle Matej Cepak wanted to emigrate but he did not have the opportunity. (Note: Matej Cepak was her first cousin. He came to America with his brothers and sister. Her uncle was Frantisek Cepak and he stayed behind). Mrs. Sulak also told me that that she knew my father very well when he lived near Fayetteville and Warrenton and that Jan Prazak moved from Vesely and moved to Fayetteville. Tragedy struck Mr. Prazak and his wife passed away and was very sad his wife passed away he had small children to take care of. He looked for someone who would take care of his children. He married again, His second wife was the daughter of the Pivec family.
She remembers how in the many years passed in southern Texas how people to work very hard especially if they lived near a forest, and the worth the wife along with her husband lived through a lot where they lived and then when living in West. She also remembers, how some emigrants did not live very long and succumbed to yellow fever.

During the conversation, Mrs. Sulak remembers about her brother in law Jan (John) Sulak, how he had a tough life and lived through many things, sad and trying times. C.Y. Sulak remember his uncle telling these stores in his later years what his life was like in the old country when he was forced to military service. At the camp he was assigned to a hospital where he wrapped broken legs and arms of wounded soldiers. These instances were enough that Mr. Sulak after several times was not able to take a rest. He was going from one place to another, day and night on his feet and to quickly with the doctors take care of the wounded soldiers. It so happened that that he was able to sit and rest for a moment until sleep took over, once asleep he was awakened and called into work, even when he was very tired, his legs could not hold him up. His commanding officer did not care of lack of rest was making Mr. Jan Sulak unwell. After his military service, learned from the doctors especially about how to treat wounds and broken bones, it so happened that when he came home from his military service, he came to be known as Jan Sulak, wound healer but that did not mean he went to school. When he came to Texas with his brother to Fayetteville there were situations when chopping down trees a worker was injured or developed blisters and Mr. Sulak learned about it and was willing without pay helped those injured and there was a good ending. As a result he became well known for his skills . He had a gentle personality and people like him and also began calling him a physician/wound healer. When the injured were healed and if they did not pay him for his service Mr. Sulak did not ask anything in return. I have to reveal that Mr. Jan Sulak is the father of Jan Sulak of west, who after years owns a part of Walla Gin company.(Note: John Alois Sulak). The son is the director and because of his friendly personality has many friends. Also living in West is his sister, (Note: Agnes Sulak) who married a Frantisek (Frank) Mares he was also a gin owner who passed away a number of years ago. Then his sister, (Note: Albina Sulak) married Vincent Mares they lived near Belmen near Cameron where her husband owned a cotton gin. When Vincent Mares went to heaven or eternal slumber he was buried not in West where he lived for many years before moving, but his wish was to be buried in Cameron. (Note: Both Vincent (James) and Albina have markers in St. Mary's Cemetery in West). I wish to add that from a letter from Mrs. Vincent Mares (Note Albina Sulak Maresh), she states that it interests her reading about the emigrants and remembers the parents of Jan Sulak. She writes her parents also first lived in Bethelem near Brenham where she was born. She does not have very many memories because she was a small child when her parents moved to Moravia where they farmed. They did not live there for very long because her father bought a farm near Engle where they permanently settled. Her brother Jan Sulak who now lives in West was born. (Note: this maybe a translation error. John Sulak had two wives. The 2nd wife, Johanna Hubenak, already had a son from a previous marriage and the son took the Sulak name, John Alois Sulak. John Alois moved to West and owned a cotton gin).

5. Newspaper Story: Biography of Josephine Sulak in Cechoslovak a Westky Noviny by Joseph Tydlacka, 12 Mar 1943, West, McLennan County, Texas. Dear Readers,
I would like to write what I did not finish in the last issue and it is the live of Mrs. Vincent Mares (Note: Albina (Sulak) Maresh) of Cameron. Just like in her letter she wrote that it will also be in her memory what kind of life they had when they lived near Engle, Texas how burglars stole everything they had and it was a great loss. And it also happened that the thieves argued among themselves and with a gun or a knife wounded themselves, and when they heard that their father Jan Sulak is able to treat/heal wounds it so happened that the thieves/outlaws late at night without invite or notice carried the wounded to Mr. Sulak's home and in their hands they had a gun, and in their cruelty ordered him to treat the wounded and did not pay Mr. Sulak and Mr. Sulak did not ask this of them because of their weapons/guns the outlaws had with them so he rather did not ask. Mrs. Vincent Mares writes, that she she can write a lot from her memories living in Engle, Texas. What they lived through long ago and their difficult life, how they were at the mercy of the outlaws/harassed by them and how when they could had to defend themselves when possible. At this time some officials were no better then the outlaws. Mrs. Mares tells me that in her older age her vision is very weak/bad so for writing she can not see very well even with glasses but when she can get to West she will tell me more of her memories from her youth. This ends the story of the life of the Sulak Family and I will list the names of the surviving children and their descendants: from their son Paul (Pavel) Sulak: Cyril, Josef, Anton, Vojtech, Filip, Jan and Jaroslav. The last two mentioned served in the military in the last war. Their living daughters: Anna and Zofie. The children who passed away: daughter Josefina buried in Fayetteville, Marie in Tours, Frantiska in West and a son Pavel also buried in West. If there were any mistakes please forgive me.

6. Biography: 1980, McLennan County, Texas. Family history says that Josephine Hertous came to the U.S. (Galveston) on the same sailing ship (Hannover I) as Paul in 1872. She was 14 years old. She came with her older sister, Marie, (who was 16 according to the manifest, but possibly 21 years old), and her mother, also named Marie, who was a widow. Her father, name not known, was of German descent. Her mother was Czech. Her father had died before they left Bohemia. They were from the village of Stribrec which is 18 miles east of Ceske Budeovice in Bohemia.

Josephine had told her daughter, Sophie, that the sailing voyage had taken longer than expected because they had no wind or were blown off course. There were some hardships because they were low on food, but Josephine also remembered the good times when she and her sister Marie, along with the other young people on board, would dance to accordion music.

In Texas, Marie (the mother) married a man by the name of John Kopetsky (or Kopecky) who reportedly did not live long after the marriage. After his death, Marie moved to West and is buried in St. Mary's Cemetery at West.

While in Fayette Co. Josephine's sister, Marie, married Anton Sulak about the same time that Josephine married Paul Sulak.

Source: Mrs. Sophie (Sulak) Jurek:

Back when Paul and Josephine lived in Fayette County near Fayetteville, Paul had gone hunting and a stranger on horseback came into the house and set down in a chair while Josephine was rocking C.Y.. He just sat there stairing at her. Josephine stood up and pulled out her rosary and showed him- she was very frightened. The man then reached into his pocket, Josephine thought it might be a gun.He pulled out a rosary (Josephine thought: It is prettier than mine). Without a word he got up and left.
