Below is a list
from the 1900 census of Winnebago
County, Wisconsin that contains the names of people claiming Bohemia
or Austria as a birthplace.
Many people that are actually Bohemian will not be listed here because
they are listed in the census as German.
No attempt was made to
list people from Germany. Yet. I will eventually list
everyone in the 6th and 13th wards of Oshkosh.
Counting the population on the 1900 census in the 6th and
half of the 13th ward (E.D. 150) there
is a total of 4,716 people. In the 6th---2,566 and the 13th---2,177. There
are approximately 593 people that claim a birthplace or parents birthplace
other than Germany, Austria or Bohemia, or about 13%. The places claimed
are England, Wales, Scotland, Russia, France, Denmark, Norway,
Switzerland, Saxony, Asia, Turkey, Sweden, Prussia, English Canada and the
New England states of New York, Vermont, Etc. Not all Germans will be from
Bavaria or Austria but most of the names are the same as known surnames
from Bavaria and Bohemia. So I am making the assumption that the streets
bound by the river on the North, Minnesota Street on the East, 13th or now
South Park Avenue on the South, and the city limits on the
West were a very ethnically cohesive neighborhood with the vast
majority of the people ancestrally from the Böhmerwald of Germany and
Bohemia. The enumeration district 150 is North of 13th street or South
Park Ave. E.D. 151 is South of this street and there are Germans present
here but there are only few recognized Böhmerwald names such as Paulick
