    Notes 
    • Sharon Nemeth emailed that "Anna Janda Bures died 24 May 1933 and I was able to find two references to that in the Milligan Review, which was a weekly paper.  Considering the in-depth information a lot of the other obits carried, hers is extremely short and a number of survivors are surprisingly not mentioned, including her step-mother, Rousy, her older half sister, Emma Hranac [Janda] Yeck, her older sister, Mary Janda Sluka, her younger half brothers, Joseph Janda (Sr.) and Ed Matejovsky, and her younger half sister, Agnes Matejovsky Redmond.

      The first article ran in the 26 May 1933 issue on the front page and simply said, "MRS. JOE BURES PASSES AWAY  Mrs. Joe Bures passed away at the family home near Burress, Nebr., Wednesday, May 24.  Funeral services will be held Friday, May 26th, and burial will be in the south cemetery at Milligan."

      A transcription of the 02 Jun 1933 obituary from the Milligan Review is below:

      Anna Janda Bures

      Anna Janda Bures was born in Fillmore County, May 16, 1884, and passed away at the family home near Burress, Neb., May 24, 1933, age 49 years and 8 days.

      She leaves to mourn her loss her husband, Joe Bures, two sons Joseph and Leo, two brothers, Vincent and Gus, and one sister, Stella Posvar.

      Funeral services were held Friday, May 26, burial in the south cemetery, Milligan.

    • Their marriage license, from Dobrs, Book 3, Page 25, 167 Register, showed that they were married on the 28 of January 1828 by Vaclav Bezdeka (Priest), with witnesses being Matej Sluka, a cottager from Volenic #26 and Frantisek Prokop, a peasant from Strasic #14.

      Joseph and Josefa traveled to America with their two oldest children and a niece, Mary. They spent 17 days on the ocean, enduring a severe five day storm.

    Sharon Nemeth writes that "from left to right are, Anna (the younger surviving daughter of Josef Janda and his first wife, Josefa Rejsek), Estella "Staza" (the daughter of Josef Janda and Rousy Hranac), Joseph Sr. (oldest son of Josef and Rousy--"Pepik" is written below his image); Vincent (youngest son of Josef and Rousy); Gust (middle son of Josef and Rousy--it looks like "Gustav" or "Gustus" is written below his image)and finally Emma Hranac, Rousy's eldest daughter, born prior to her marriage to Josef Janda. Josef's eldest son Frank Janda was not in the photo, probably due to being in Canada, and daughter Mary was missing as well, a mystery as she was the one that commissioned the photo to be taken. Daughters Antonie and Alice died young, prior to this photos, and also missing were Rousy's children from her later marriage to Joseph Matejovsky, Agnes, Stanley and Edward.

    Sharon Nemeth emailed that "Nothing is written on the back of this photo, but I'm guessing that the lady on the left is Mary Janda Sluka and the gentleman on the right is Gust Janda; I identified the others based on the writing on the back of the other photos."
