Antonin went on to marry Frantishka Hlavfka from Budejovice, Bohemia, and they immigrated sometime in early 1884. We believe they came to America via Galveston Tx, but cannot confirm this as there are not many records in Texas during this year. They went on to settle in Council Bluffs, Iowa and Omaha Nebraska area. I do not know if Antonin had any brothers or sisters, yet this area seemed to be a popular spot with Czech immigrants, so they must have known someone living there. Hearing from anyone with Benes surname would be intersting, even if we don't have a match with our ancestors.

I have records dating back to 1770's in the villages of Schilligkau (Sidlakov) and Neuhauesl (Nove Domky) for the Ecksteins and Keims of Bohemia. The Ecksteins came to America in 1857 and 1864. They settled in the New Ulm, MN area. For this line of Ecksteins, I have excellent resources, documents, and photos for anyone researching this family line.
