Frank Dobias and Marie Krista (also Kristen, Kristagova, etc.) emigrated from Bohemia in 1897, settling first near Canby, Minnesota, where Frank's sister, Marie (Mary) Dobias Cech, already resided, then moving west in 1907 to homestead near Cartwright, North Dakota. One of their daughters, Agnes, married Harry Croy, a native of Iowa, in 1912. They had ten children, and Frank and Marie's other daughters, as well as their son Frank, had large families also. (Their son Joseph never married.)
As with most family trees, there are many affiliated lines (branches, if you will), so the information here includes other surnames that are connected to us in various ways (the "More" of "Croy-Dobias & More!"). If you are a non-family visitor to this site and have information that could be added, or you ARE family but aren't listed here, please contact the Webmaster. We would be happy to "graft" you onto the tree!
