The Mensik family came to area early on, traveling on the Red Star Line in 1902.
Pictured here are:
(LtoR) August, John, Anton (Tony), Josef, Anna, Agnus (standing) (Front) Anastasia (Annie) and Louise
It was an incredible trip from Czechoslovakia to the U.S., and Annie at 89 years old, recounts the story and the early years living in Alder and Eatonville in this TRANSCRIPT.
Annie would go on to marry a local man named Scott Turner. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because there is a Scott Turner road named after the man.
For more information on the entire family, you read more on Abbi Wonacott’s website.
