Bohumil as a Cigar Maker
   
  So far I have found no other verified records of Bohumil.  John and Julia's obituaries mention that a Robert Liska went with them to Hillsboro, and he died there.  For a time he ran a barber shop.  There is no record of a Robert being born to John and Julia.  I have found no Bohumil records after 1910, but I did find a Robert Liska record, same birth year, Census 1920 Illinois McHenry Hebron District 133 Page 27 170 Prairie Avenue in Hebron, living as a boarder, single, and running his own barber shop.  Could this Robert have been a Bohumil.  Any one out there have any more information?
