“Texas Marriages, 1837-1973,” database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FX73-Z86 : 5 December 2014), Charlie Frederick and Annie B. Mazac, 12 Oct 1914; citing , Williamson, Texas, , reference 2:1FZK0L0; FHL microfilm 1,007,899.

They married on October 12, 1914 in Williamson County, Texas.  Charlie and Bessie were both Catholics.  They resided in Taylor, Texas for the U.S. Census for 1920. They rented a house at 210 Davis Street. I still have not figured out why Agnes was not on the 1920 Census but a son Barnie age 4 (my family never said a word about them having a son that age), and Anita age 3 was. I did find records for a Jeromie Frederick that was born in 1919 and died in 1919. ????

My Grandmother loved pink, so I posted the pink background of the Moravian-Czech flower. She liked artificial because she said they never die.

She lost my Grandfather in 1947 to Stomach Cancer, and she had a hard life raising her five children on her own. Grandma was an excellent cook, a good mother, and she also grew a garden with her sons, Woodrow and Charles for years to help feed the family. Bessie worked in the Cafeteria for Crosby I.S.D. for years.

Charles F. “Charlie” Frederick also known as Karel Fredrich, and Charles Fredrick, was born on April 20, 1892 in Mala Lhota, Vsetina, Moravia and he emigrated from Moravia in 1894 to New York, and then on to Austin, Travis County, Texas. His last known residence according to his naturalization papers was in Pusta Polom, Ostrava, Moravian-Silesia. He was a poor farmer and a cobbler. My father told me that he helped the other Moravian’s to learn English. He was an avid reader, and read his Bible everyday.
