Obituary of Vojtech Cerny

Posted by dwsuddarth on 24 June 2016

I managed to track down the obituary for Vojtech Cerny the other day. Vojtech died 4-August-1896 and the obituary was published two days later on 6-August-1896 in the Denni Hlasatel, a Czech language newspaper in Chicago. I tried to translate the obituary into English the best I could. If anyone knows Czech and has any corrections, please comment below! While it may not be an exact translation, I was able to pull out a lot of good genealogical information.
