      A Nebraska Czech's website notes that:

      "Frank Beznoska, Beroun. Came to Cleveland in 1865. Died March 3, 1900, aged 78. Remembered as an able ferryman, who saved people from drowning on several occasions. "

      From http://www.rootsweb.com/~neethnic/czechs/cz-pg97a.html

      The family first settled in Cleveland, Ohio. They later came to Nebraska and homesteaded on a farm southeast of Morse Bluff. Two of their daughters remained in Cleveland.

      He and his wife were seriously injured in a runaway carriage in 1897. His wife died due to the injuries, and he went to live with his son, Frank Beznoska, Jr. His obituary reads as follows:

      "Frank Beznosky (sic) Sr. of Morse Bluff, died at his home in Morse Bluff, March 3, of paralysis. He came to Saunders County from Bohemia in 1869, and engaged in farming. Two years ago his team ran away, killing his wife and injuring Mr. Beznosky so badly that he never recovered, and his death was no doubt due to this abuse. The deceased leaves five children, Mrs. James Racek, Mrs. Soukup of Milligan, Nebraska, Frank Beznoska, and two others in Ohio. The funeral was held, Monday, March 5.

    The Soukup family was from Kortya, a small village near Pilsen, and approximately 60 miles to the west of Prague. The Beznoska family was from Beroun, an administrative center akin to a "county seat". It lies on the motorway that connects Pilsen with Prague, closer to Prague than to Pilsen.
