Madness Monday - He must be somewhere....

I have a copy of a document dated 8 Dec 1881 for Frank Vlcek.
I suspect that he may be the father of Stephen Welcheck (Vlcek) but, as usual,  need more information.
A lot of very good information is given on this document, but, much to my frustration (hence this Madness Monday post), I cannot find any other references to this person. 
Perhaps someone with a fresh eye can help me out please. 
Thank you!! Theresa

Theresa - I played around with the 1880 census (it was that or weed the garden) for a bit. This does nothing to help you with this Vlcek record, but have you seen the 1880 Cuyahoga County census record indexed Stephen Watcher, age 14, born Bohemia, son of Frank & Katie Watcher? He's listed as working in an iron works. Not a sure match, by far, but the best I could do before the weeds grabbed me.
There should be an institution somewhere for those of us driven mad researching our immigrant ancestors.
