Frank Burval ca. 1912

He married Anna Hubert, daughter of Josef Hubert and Marie Krejčová, on 13 February 1895 at Woodland Ave Church, Cleveland, Cuyahoga, Ohio, United States.2 Frank died on 10 January 1963 at Euclid, Cuyahoga, Ohio, United States, at age 92.3 His body was buried on 12 January 1963 at Highland Park Cemetery, Cleveland, Cuyahoga, Ohio, United States.4
     Frank's occupation: Baker and later, Grocer & Butcher.
Biography of Frank Burval:
Frank Burval was born in House 23 in Lisna, Moravia. He arrived in New York City, at age 4, on 6 May 1875 with his parents. He went to public schools in Cleveland and started work as a Baker about 1890. He was a Baker until 2 Oct 1911, when he bought a home and grocery store at 2434 East 89th St. in Cleveland. He raised chickens in the garage/barn in the rear of the property, sold groceries and butchered meat in the downstairs store and raised his family in the second floor living quarters. The store was located in a predominately ethnic Bohemian/Czech neighborhood. Frank sold the store on 27 May 1943 and retired from the grocery business at age 73. He and his wife Anna, moved to a small farm in Mentor, Ohio. During and after WWII he raised chickens, turkeys, rabbits, ducks and pigs on the farm.

Frank did not apply to become a U. S. Citizen until 11 Jun 1917 when he filed his Declaration of Intention in the U. S. Northern District Court of Ohio. On 26 May 1921, at age 50, as well as, exactly 46 years and 20 days after he arrived in the United States, he became a U. S. Citizen and is thus the second Burval of foreign birth to obtain U. S. Citizenship. His father, became a U. S. citizen on 27 October 1892. Frank was very proud to have his citizenship as it allowed him to vote. The author has the original Certificate of Naturalization and the original Board of Elections certification card. Frank is described as fair complexion, height 5 feet 7 inches, weight 150 pounds, dark brown hair and brown eyes in his Declaration of Intention.

Frank (or "Pa" as he was affectionately called by his grandchildren) was an active man all his life. He worked constantly in his grocery store and on the farm, even in his retirement. He loved to build and fix things and could usually be found with a hammer in his hand. He was very easy going, having a very pleasant disposition, always cheerful and showing great interest in what was going on around him, as well as, in the world. He seemed very content with life as he always whistled softly as he worked. He was not a man to take offense easily or to show anger. He is well loved and remembered by all who knew him.

Frank died 10 Jan 1963, at age 92 at the home of his daughter, Florence, in Euclid, Ohio where he lived for the last several years of his life. He is buried in Highlawn Park Cemetery in Cleveland next to his wife Anna Hubert..

The back yard of the Burval home on 89th St. in Cleveland had a large flower garden as did the Mentor farm after Frank and Anna moved there in 1943. Anna (or "Grammy" as she was called by her grandchildren) had a deep love of gardening and raised flowers of all sorts. Her garden was one of her favorite places to be. In addition to the garden she had every window in the house filled with plants and flowers. She was especially adept at raising african violets and had dozens of them in all colors throughout the house.

Anna was an excellent cook. She had a large kitchen on E. 89 St. and was always cooking and baking. During holidays, large quantities of Bohemian baked goods, pastries and cookies of all sorts were made. All in her unique style from old recipes.

Anna died, at age 76 in 1949, at the home of her daughter, Florence, in Euclid, Ohio where she was staying during the lasts months of her life. She is buried in Highlawn Park Cemetery in Cleveland next to her husband, Frank.
