    Notes:

    From ASF, great-granddaughter, in email:

    Joseph D Kopsho and his brother Albert ran a movie theater in Denver, starting sometime around 1906. In 1916 they were doing at least one showing on the road, using a car for power. Albert was the projection engineer. The theater appears to have been called the Electric Theater Co.

    He appears to have been living in Lodge Pole, Nebraska, and visiting his family in Buckingham, CO in 1911. His movements are a little confusing - he's listed as being "of Esmond, Illinois" in 1912. […]

    They had two children, Lucy and Joe. Joe was born in Denver in 1923. By the 1930's they were in Anaheim, CA. Sometime in the 1940s he went to Stanford as a graduate student in electrical engineering. He was certainly there in 1948, helping to run the radio station.

    Joseph married Anna Margaret Gaspar on 16 May 1916 in Denver, Denver, Colorado. Anna was born on 19 Apr 1896 in Germany; died on 24 Aug 1957 in Orange County, California. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

Generation: 2

  1. 2.  Joseph Kopsho was born in Jan 1860 in Austria.

    Notes:

    He appears to have emigrated to the US in about 1875.

    His wife's 9 Jun 1931 California death certificate calls her "widowed," so obviously he died before then.

    Joseph married Mary Ambrose in 1885. Mary (daughter of Michael Ambrose) was born on 25 Dec 1857 in Austria; died on 9 Jun 1931 in Long Beach, Los Angeles, California; was buried on 11 Jun 1931 in Calvary Cemetery, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 3.  Mary Ambrose was born on 25 Dec 1857 in Austria (daughter of Michael Ambrose); died on 9 Jun 1931 in Long Beach, Los Angeles, California; was buried on 11 Jun 1931 in Calvary Cemetery, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Dec 1855, Austria

    Notes:

    She appears to have emigrated around 1875.

    Children:
    1. 1. Joseph David Kopsho was born on 20 Feb 1887 in Illinois; died on 24 Mar 1957 in Orange County, California.


Generation: 3

  1. 6.  Michael Ambrose was born in in Austria.

    Notes:

    Mary Kopsho's father is identified as "Mike Ambrose", born in Austria, on her California death certificate. We're presuming that he didn't actually go by the American diminutive "Mike."

    Children:
    1. 3. Mary Ambrose was born on 25 Dec 1857 in Austria; died on 9 Jun 1931 in Long Beach, Los Angeles, California; was buried on 11 Jun 1931 in Calvary Cemetery, Los Angeles, Los Angeles, California.
