    • Johann Matocha filed a declaration of intention with the Fayette County District Court. He listed his country of birth as Moravia. He was 54 years old, and left Bremen on 28 July 1881. He arrived in Baltimore on 20 Aug 1881 (This is consistent with the year of immigration given by his children on census records.) Nothing else was ever done, so he must have died shortly after conceiving Louis Matocha, Sr.

    NOTE: I searched in countless cemeteries and asked everyone I could think of for years about a tombstone for Jan Matocha, and have to give credit to Randy Matocha for finally locating this tombstone in August of 2009. He not only located it, but he marked it so I could easily find it to photograph it for the site. :)
