Question about Bluff, Fayette Co., TX

Surnames: Herchek,Hrcek,Hercek,Recek,Kolibal,Koether,Krumm,Krum,Mondrick,Mundrik.Mondrik
My g-g-grandparents, Valentin (Anton?) KOLIBAL and Franziska RECEK KOLIBAL immigrated from Frenstat,Maern,Moravia to TX in 1856. They were part of the first Czech catholics in TX along with families such as the Janda's, Haidusek's,Holub's,
Sramek's, Muzny's,Marak's,Petr's, Sugarek's,Sklenacek's,Pustejovsky's,Vychopen, and Sebesta's. They first settled in a place in Fayette called Bluff
(Na Bluffu").

Does anyone have any info as to the location of the Bluff in Fayette Co.?

Does anyone out there have any information about the Hostyn settlement?

I would welcome hearing from descendents of all of the above families to compare notes. I would also enjoy hearing from anyone who has information about the area in the mid-late 1800's and those who might be related to or descended from the Kolibal, Koether and Recek families and related families.
