Carl Bytof was my grandfather.

He's also mentioned here (as "Karl Bitof"):

"In July of 1918 an extra meeting was held to welcome into membership Edward Fredrich, John Rohland, William Lentz, John Engel, Julius Cizek, Fred Molzan, Jak.Cizek, Karl Bitof, Fred Schwenke, John Lankheim and Ludw. Schafer. This group had come from Chicago and had purchased a school building in which to hold Polish services. In view of the fact that the group still had a debt to retire on the school the voters of St. John's decided to release them of any obligation of church debt retirement. At the same meeting it was decided to permit a pastor to come three times a year for the purpose of holding services in the Polish language for those members not too well acquainted with the German."
