I am looking for information on John DOBRY, born in Bohemia and married an Antoinette SOUCUP (Austrian born). They immigrated to the US and had a son
named James Dobry born March 9, 1890 in Preble, Brown County, WI.
I found that Dobry means "Good" in Czech and that James and Wenzel in Bohemian/Czech are the same.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
I have pictures of a Talbert BAILEY (about 9 months old) and a Mrs. Bailey. They from the "big hat" era and the photographer was F.W. Schneider, Green Bay, Wis. They were in with pictures from my Grandmother, Emma (SCHULTZ) RACE from Little Suamico, Oconto Co. WI. They lived for a short time, turn of the century, at Mountain, WI. Other relitives are DEHOS from Door Co. or LEDER, BOETTCHER, BARTELT from Shawano Co. They may have been family friends. I will be willing to share these pictures with some one who would have an interest in them and maybe we can figure out why they belonged to my grandmother.
I am searching for a DENNY family that came to Wisconsin in 1860-65 from Jefferson Co NY. The son of John Denny - a Chandler DENNY enlisted in the Calvary at Janesville (found his stat's on his enlistment). He was living in Dale Outagamie Co and his parents John Denny & Lucetta lived in that area. Chandler's sister Melissa came with her husband Burton GALLEA and also lived in the same area (ended up in Medina). What I am trying to find is the residence of John Denny during these years 1860 - 1875 in Wisconsin. I am not finding any listings - I did come across a John Denny living in Brown County but can't find any information through census's., He's (if he is indeed my John Denny) listed on a Land patent in Brown County but I don't know where else to retrieve any information on his residency. John Denny uprooted again and moved to Minnesota around 1880. John Denny was born in 1815/16 NY and died in Morristown, Minnesota. Second Question is, the people who came from NY in 1860 - Did they come through the Lakes or overland ? If through the Lakes - wheres the port of entry and how do I find that information?

Please can you tell me are they buried in Green bay and are there any children?
