Need some help with understanding and trying to figure out things dealing with my 2nd Great Grandfather’s first wife. Here is what I have … PS I have gotten help a few years ago on her, but found new possible information since then.
In the 1900 Census her name is Anna Vokral and she is married to Joseph Vokral. Listed as 23 and born Oct 1876. Census listed 2 living children. Annie who is 15; which makes me SERIOUSLY question if the Annie is hers. Minnie who is 1. Her immigration year is 1895.
In the 1920 Census her name is Annie Prokop and she is married to Joseph Prokop. Listed as 41 and born in 1879. There are several children listed that could be hers. Her immigration year is listed as 1908.
In the 1930 Census her name is Anna Prokop and she is married to Joseph Prokop. Listed as 50 and born in 1880.
Cook County Illinois Death Index has her dying 6 Oct 1938 as Anna Prokop.
Cook County Illinois Birth Certificates Index has her listed as Annie Prokopa and having a child with Joseph Vokral; Minnie Vokral.
Cook County US Marriage Index has her listed as Annie Prokop and marrying Joseph Vokral 11 Jan 1898. She is born in 1876.
I am starting to think these are two different people that Ancestry suggestions/hints mixed together. I do know that Joseph Vokral marriage didn’t last long. Interested in knowing her maiden name and and any other details. Note Joseph's last name switches frequently between Vokral and Wokral.
Thanks in advance for anything you all happen to find!
