Here, the Thomas & Elizabeth Trachowsky family arrived in Baltimore from Bohemia on the S S Ohio on June 4, 1869, when Agnes was 16. Her sibs were Franz, Maria, Theresia and Elise.
The wonders of web searching: put in a name, especially an odd one, and amazing things show up! This article from September 1899 was published in the Globe, St Pauls sensational rag...lol Franz, now Frank, would have been 39 here, and had evidently moved to Iowa/Illinois:
(So, when Frank eventually DID die, was there a second, real, grave marker for him? Genealogy is so un-exact! lol)
Another fascinating thing about searching for relatives who might have lived in Iowa was the amazing census of 1925. Each person was listed on two wide pages--first with current info, then with who their parents were, including mom's maiden name. Here, we see that Marie (Mary) Trachofsky married Isador Richlen (a Frenchman) and lived in Buffalo, Scott Co, Iowa.
So, siblings Mary Trachofsky (Richlen) and Frank Trachofsky lived near each other around Muscatine, Iowa, and their sister Agnes was 'just up the river' in Waumandee.
