bullet  General Notes:

In the 1900 census, you'll find them under "Kostecki".
In 1910, you'll find them under "Kosteck."
There are many Kosteckas in the St. John Nepomucene Parish records, avail. through I also noticed that a Rosalie Kostecka was found in the marriage records there, and her place of birth was Cep, Bohemia, which is the same town as our Elizabeth Bilek. Might the Bileks and the Kosteckas have known each other from the old country?
