The Descendants of

John Hustoles (1852-1916)

by Jane Lee Hustoles Himebaugh 1997


The name HUSTOLES is rare. The origin is Bohemian—Bohemia, being one of three Eastern European block countries, along with Sliezsia and Moravia that make up Czechoslovakia, now the Czech-Republic. We can trace our American roots to two Bohemian immigrant brothers who arrived here separately in the early 1880s, seeking work and looking for those "streets paved with gold." John Hustoles came in 1881 at the age of 29 with his wife and some children. His younger brother, Joseph, followed in 1884 at the age of 16.

This book chronicles the descendants of the immigrant John Hustoles.

As a reference guide you will find family members listed on a descendant chart as well as a chronological register of descendants with an index of names at the back of this book. Start at the beginning, and you will meet the first three generations in narratives depicting their lives garnered from both public records and family stories.

Take note that in using this book you will find that all women will be referred to by their maiden name and when two surnames are used, the maiden name will be in parenthesis, Ex. Anna (Jacobs) Smith. The surname is most often capitalized unless used in a narrative story as in the example.

Because genealogy is the study of lineage, the linking of ancestors with descendants, I have chosen to stop a descendant line for an adopted child. It is not to say that the adopted child is any less a part of their immediate and extended family—brothers, sisters, cousins, aunts and uncles. However, I have taken the approach in writing this that it is as much a history of the family as it is an accounting of genetically related individuals; their similarities in traits, occupations, health and longevity.
