Beaver Valley Cemetery
Sheridan County,

The following passage comes from Beaver Valley and its people, 1870-1970, page 25

“Venzel Kubo was born near Prague, Czechoslovakia, November 20, 1837. He married Katherine Janosek in 1866. Katherine was born November 15, 1844 in Czechoslovakia. Venzel, Katherine and their three children, Henry 5, Mary 3, and Mike 1 year old, immigrated to the United States in 1873. One of the children was smuggled aboard ship in a barrel of clothing to save passage money which was very difficult to come by in those times.
Venzel often said he had about $7.00 and 10 children when he came to Beaver Valley. Here, their other four children, Bessie, Frank, Victor and Agnes were born. Venzel and Katherine had 15 children and raised 13 of them to maturity.
In the Old Country, Venzel was a school teacher.”
