FRIEDRICH DER GROSSE SUMMARY Matej and Marie (Dragoun) JAROLIMEK arrived in America in 1904. The spelling of the family name was changed from JAROLIMEK to YAROLIMEK on 15 Mar 1909 when the family was naturalized. Following their immigration, Matej and Marie resided in Winona county (Wiscoy Valley, Rupprecht�s Valley, town of Rollingstone and the city of Winona) their entire life. They had fourteen children; nine boys (Adolph, Alois, Ben, Ed, Frank, Fred, George, Jerry, Joseph) and five girls (Agnes PECK, Emma DRENCKHAHN, Marie JAROLIMEK, Mary BRUESKE, Rose PESHON) JAROLIMEK/YAROLIMEK FAMILY HISTORY 1650 The widow, Mariana Jarolimek lived in house number 24 in Jablonna. Presently (April 2001), this is the farm/home of descendents of the Sedivy family that purchased the property from the Jarolimek family when they immigrated to the United States in 1904. 6 Jun 1837 Josef Jarolimek (Matej�s father) was born in Bohemia. 11 Feb 1869 Matej was born in Jablonna, Pribram, in St. Hory, CZ (death certificate states DOB 11 Nov 69). Book in Rollingstone, MN - Luxembourg Heritage Museum erroneously states DOB to be 11 Jan 1868. Matej was christened in the Dolnich Hbyt church (probably nearby Dolni Hbity). 1872 Matej�s grandmother Cerny lived nearby (within walking distance). Matej had a cousin who was a little older than he. Josef Jarolimek (Matej�s father) was a tailor. Matej had a cousin named Vaclav FIRT who lived nearby. Matej�s gma CERNYCH (Barbara CERNY�s mother) had a pear orchard. A neighbor�s name (in Jablonna) was Bartosuv FRANTISEK. (Since Frantisek is a common first name, the neighbor may have been named Frantisek BARTOSUV. 1 Nov 1873 Marie (DRAGOUN) Jarolimek was born in Smolotel, Pribram, CZ. 1875 Matej started school when he was six. 1882 Matej finished school when he was 13 1/2 years old. 1885 Matej started catching and selling birds and rabbits when he was 16 years old. Matej�s friend, Emanuvah HULY, owned a gun. Matej shot and sold his first deer. He received five Zloty for the meat. (WHAT WAS THE BUYING POWER IN 1885 OF 5 ZLOTY ?) Answer to the foregoing question provided by Miroslav Dragoun. A man named Hulovi helped arrange the sale of the deer. Kouta was the name of the game warden�s son. Matej spent six weeks in jail at #4 Karlova Avenue in Prague. A new, younger game warden was named Anyz. Someone named Frantsek (Frantiska) Svec warned gpa of officials coming. An aunt lived in Hbytech (maybe Dolni Hbyty). Matej weighed 220 pounds. 1 May Duke of Dobrise came to the area to hunt a six prong deer. 16 May Once before St. John Nepamuckeho (Nepomucene) on Saturday before 16th of May, there was a big open market in Prague. It was there that Matej promised to deliver four deer. The Jablonskeho forest was past Pribrami. Matej had a friend named Kralicvkov. Another warden was named Vaclav. North of Smolotel (Smolotely) was a group of ten small houses called Drahach. A rabbit cost "a gold piece and 50 krjcaru". (HOW MUCH WAS 50 KRJCARU?) Answer to the foregoing question provided by Miroslav Dragoun. 1892 There was a silver mine near Pribrami. A thousand men were killed in a fire at the mine. (According to Pribram History, 319 men died as a result of the 1892 Pribram mining disaster.) Pribram History 24 Feb 1892 Matej & Marie got married in Smolotel (Mary weighed 115 pounds). 22 Feb 1893 Adolph was born. 1893 Bohemia had a cold winter. Matej had a friend named Klibiki (footsie). Footsie hunted deer in the Hluboskemo forest (3 hours from Jablonna). 14 Apr 1894 Marie was born. 13 Oct 1895 Frantisek (Frank) was born. Oct 1896 Marie died. Church records in Dolni Hbity, CZ indicate she died of TBC. 20 Nov 1897 Alois was born. 6 Mar 1899 Anezka (Agnes) was born. 2 Feb 1901 Marie (Mary) was born. (Note: This was the second daughter named Marie. The first one was born in 1894 and died in 1896.) Adolph & Frank�s teacher�s name was Pinta. 6 Nov 1902 Josef (Joe) was born. 16 Jun 1903 Saturday before, Matej went hunting in the Lazne mountains. Balaman was the name of a warden who helped capture Matej. The gun was never found. It was always hidden on a shelf in the family (water) well. The well still existed on the family farm (now owned by Sedivy�s) in Nov 1997 when Dean R. & Marianne E. visited Jablonna, CZ. Frantisik Sedivy told Dean the story about hiding the gun in the well and proudly showed him the well. Josef Huly and his brother came along on the hunting trip. Josef Samlik published a newspaper in Morave called "The Farmers Voice". 1904 Matej farmed for 12 years in Jablonna. 11 Jul 1904 Jaroslaw (Jerry) was born (was still being nursed on the boat to America in Oct). In the summer of 1904, Matej was sentenced to nine months in jail for poaching but never spent a day in jail. He was allowed to return home for 14 days to finish up his business before he was to begin the nine month sentence. When the 14 days were gone, he pleaded with the court to give him a few more days and that too was granted. On the day he requested the extension, he and Adolph took a wagon load of coal to a blacksmith in Skrysova (Skrysev), a trip which took about 3 hours (blacksmith�s name was Stanislaw NACHACEK). Adolph returned to the farm alone. Matej proceeded to a friend�s house (local attorney) in Benesova, by way of Sedlcanv. Matej had served with the friend in the 102 army regiment). Following that, he went to Bremen, Germany. 3 days later Matej sent a telegram from Bremen saying he was on a boat to America. 09 Aug 1904 Matej proceeded to America as Stanislaw Nachacek aboard the ship, Kronprinz Wilhelm which left Bemen, Germany. (Matej used Stanislaw Nachacek�s passport to escape to America from Brem (Bremen). Stanislaw Nachacek�s papers were later returned to him.) 16 Aug 1904 Matej arrived in New York as Stanislaw Nachacek aboard the Kronprinz Wilhelm. Aug 1904 Matej spent first few days with his cousin, Joseph CERNY in Winona. 24 Aug 1904 Matej filed a Declaration of Intention to become a US citizen in Winona. Aug 1904 Shortly after arrival, Matej went to work on the Anton PRUCHA farm in Wiscoy. The 1910 census identifies the family as Anton & Mary Purka (a CZ farmer who arrived in America (in 1875) with his parents James (85) & Mary (72) Pruka (note the difference in spellings of their last names on the 1910 census). (James & Mary lived on a farm adjacent to Anton�s farm. Mary had 5 children, 3 lived.) 1910 census of Wiscoy Township, Winona County The following Purka children were living at home at the time of the 1910 census; Frank 19 Lizzie 16 Elsie 13 Anton Jr 11 Ammie 8 Eva 6 Eddie 3 Stanley 10 months. (Note: The census states Anton�s wife had 9 children which lived, yet only eight of them are listed on the census. No doubt, one of them had already "left the nest".) Oct 1904 3 months later the family came to Minnesota. Marie Jarolimek sold the farm (to the Sedivy family) and paid passage for all who traveled with her. 22 Oct 1904 They traveled the 11 day trip, from Bremen to New York, as steerage (the cheapest way possible). The family had enough money to travel second class but Matej felt they should retain some money in reserve for emergency so they traveled as steerage. They sailed on a German-Lloyd Line ship "Friedrich der Grosse" from Bremen (departed Bremen on 22 Oct and arrived in NY on 1 Nov. (item #6 states the trip lasted three weeks): "Friedrich der Grosse" departed Bremen. Marie (Mary BRUESKE) was three years old (oldest child, Adolf, was 11 years and youngest child , Jaroslaw (Jerry) was 3 months). The children got lice on the fifth day of the trip. The food included cooked unpeeled potatoes (some people got two or three helpings whereas others didn�t get any). Another food item was boiled beans. Immigrants disliked them so much they dumped them in the ocean. The ship didn�t have bathing or washing facilities. Diapers couldn�t be washed. Diapers were used and then thrown overboard. 1 Nov 1904 (Tuesday) The last day of trip, 2000 steerage passengers were herded to the top deck. 1 Nov 1904 (Tuesday) When leaving the boat, all were ushered into a large immigration building on Ellis Island (Marie, accompanied by Matej�s father, Josef, Marie�s seven children (Adolph/11, Frantisek/8, Alois/7, Anezka/4y, 9m, Marie/3, Josef/1y, 6m, and Jaroslaw/3m) and her sister, Berta (Dragoun) Kiral (traveled as Berta Jarolimek/20) and Berta�s young girl friend Anna ? (traveled as Anna Jarolimek/18). 1 Nov 1904 The family boarded a train for Winona, MN. 3 Nov 1904 (Thursday) After two days and two nights (per item #6), the train arrived in Chicago. They left Chicago that night. Map of Chicago & Northwestern Railroad Route Map 1891 4 Nov 1904 The next morning (Friday) at about 3 AM, they disembarked the train at a small station called Simpson Junction near Rochester. (The family had missed the Winona station.) 5 Nov 1904 The next morning (Saturday), the family arrived in Winona and were taken to the farm where Matej was working the following Tuesday (8 Nov). They stayed in a house next to St John�s CZ Catholic church in Winona during that short period of time. Shortly after arrival, the family purchased a 80 acre farm near Wiscoy and stayed there for 5 years. OBTAIN LAND RECORDS 2 Jan 1905 Josef Jarolimek, Matej�s father, filed a Declaration of Intention to become a US citizen in Winona. 1906 Bertha Dragoun married Joe Kiral. 1910 census provides the following; Joe age 28, married 4 years; Bertha age 28, married 4 years (had 4 children, 3 lived); Emma age 3; Joe age 2; George age1; Lizzie age 66 (Joe�s mother, had 12 children, 7 lived) 6 Feb 1906 Ben was born (Wiscoy). 12 Mar 1908 Rose was born (Wiscoy). 31 Oct 1908 Matej Jarolimek filed a Petition for Naturalization in Winona. This document states that he lived in the state of Minnesota for five years since Aug 1903. Joseph Cerny, 527 E. Third Street, believed to be a cousin, was a witness to the filing of the petition. (Joseph Frisch, 521 E. Third Street, was the second witness.) 15 Mar 1909 Matej Jarolimek took the Oath of Allegiance, received the Order of Court Admitting Petitioner and received a signed , Affidavit of Witnesses. Joseph Cerny, 527 E. Third Street, believed to be a cousin, was a witness at the swearing in ceremony. (Joseph Frisch, 521 E. Third Street, was the second witness.)

Note: Bennie and Rose were born in Wiscoy Valley. It appears that they were included in the naturalization process so that the spelling of their name would be changed to YAROLIMEK along with the rest of the family. Matej�s father, Josef was not naturalized with the family on this document (Certificate of Naturalization # 7250). 1909 Matej sold the farm in the fall of 1909 and moved about 30 miles to a farm in Rupprecht Valley near Rollingstone (Norton Township) OBTAIN LAND RECORDS The family settled in Rollingstone MN, a community of people predominately from Luxembourg.
