Anna and Frank ~

Anna and Francis Sokol, circa 1870s

Anna and Francis Sokol, circa 1870s

Anna Bezecheck and Frank Sokol, to be precise! This Frank (as one can clearly see!) is the same Frank pictured in the photo featured in this post here. There he’s identified as Francis, but the 1880 census (below) has him as Frank … which doesn’t mean he didn’t go by Francis of course. In 1880, Frank and Anna’s oldest child, Blanche, was ten, which means they must have been married by 1870 at the latest, hence the approximate dating of this photograph. As the census below also records, both Frank and Anna were born in Bohemia, now the western half (or so) of the Czech Republic.
