Steele County Czechs

By the early 1850s, families began to immigrate together from Bohemia (currently the Czech Republic) and to Steele County, Minnesota, my mother’s hometown. They included:

  1. John S Pichner and Paulina Fibiger
  2. Joseph F Pichner and Katerina
  3. Benjamin Fisher and Anna
  4. Vaclav Pichner
  5. Josef Fisher
  6. Vaclav Belina and Johanna Sauba
  7. Anton Kovar and Anna

One of the small child was Antonia Fisher, my mother’s “Little Tiny Grandma.”
