OBIT: Joseph C. Haksa c 1887 -- 1959 Chicago ---> Fox River Grove IL (husband of Louise)

Classification: Obituary
Surnames: HAKSA, STEPAN, CZERNY
Attached is the May 3, 1959 Chicago Tribune obituary of Joseph C. Haksa, 72, husband of Louise. I'm putting it here because there is not (yet) a HAKSA board on Ancestry, and in the 1930 Census, Joseph & Louise gave their birthplace as Czechoslakia. In 1920, they said Austria; in other years, Bohemia.

In 1920, they had a six-year-old daughter, Helen A. Haksa, living with them, as well as three cousins surnamed STEPAN (Rose, James, and their son William). Helen is not mentioned in her father's 1959 obit and is not listed with her parents in 1930. (If she married at 16, her surname would have changed; but perhaps she died between 1920 and 1930). No other children are listed with Joseph & Louise in 1930, either.

Louise's middle initial in 1920 appears to be recorded as "K" and in 1930 as "C" -- and her first name varies between Louise and Louisa.

In 1910, Joseph Haksa was living withi his mother, Anna Haksa, his own brother Thomas, and Anna's brother Joseph CZERNY (or Cerny or Gerny). Anna listed the family as Austria Bohemia heritage.

HAKSA appears to be a *very* rare name, and the Trib archives mistranscribed it, so you'd never find Joseph's obit searching there under the correct spelling, HAKSA. See the attachment for details of his career, etc.
