- Helena Soukup Parker writes that Anna Beznoska was born in Bohemia on September 15, 1858 and came to Cleveland, Ohio in 1864 at the age of six years. She died in the home of her daughter Lillian Eret, Prague, Oklahoma, on July 14, 1909.
"Mrs. Anna Soukup of Oklahoma was buried in the Bohemian National Cemetery last Sunday in the presence of a large circle of her friends and relatives. Some few weeks ago Mr. and Mrs. Soukup were summoned here on account of the death of their daughter, Mrs. Albert Kassick. When Mrs. Soukup left for home she was not feeling well and upon arriving was almost immediately taken sick and continued growing weaker until death finally came. Her husband F.M. Soukup for weeks was constantly by her side and accompanied her corpse here from Oklahoma. Last Tuesday he too was taken seriously ill and is now under the care of a physician although the case is not as serious as at first seemed. The Soukup's are old residents in this locality having lived on their half section farm two miles south of town her for many years before moving to Oklahoma. They have a host of friends here who symphatize with them in these days of trouble and who trust that Mr. Soukup will soon recover. The following from Oklahoma were present at the funeral: Mr. and Mrs. Joe Eret, Mrs. Tessie Strong, Miss Anna Soukup and Ed, Harry, Louis and Willie Soukup. Also the following relatives from Saunders county: Mrs. Racek, and son, Emil, Pr Jakovec, Mr and Mrs Anton Soukup, Mrs. John Varka, Mrs. Fr. Hinesh and Mrs. Joe Hinesh."

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.
