I am researching my wife's family who live in the Yoakum area. Here is the ORSAK connection that I have: My wife's grandmother was Emma Victoria PETERS. Her parents were Frank PETERS and Rosalie (KOLACHE?) ORSAK. Family stories say Rosalie was born in Bohemia in 1879 and sent to Texas around 1884 to live with Joseph and Mary (VRIHODA) ORSAK who adopted her. KOLACHE might have been her real name before she was adopted. Joseph ORSAK was born in Bohemia in 1848. Mary (VRIHODA) ORSAK was born in Moravia Sep 8, 1851 and died Dec 11, 1933 in Yoakum, Tx. Joseph and Mary were married around 1873. Thanks, Roland Beausoleil
