Emilie Dedezius was my paternal grandmother.  The information that I have about her comes from my father's EWZ records and from his sister-in-law's EWZ records.  Here is what I have:

-     She was born in 1874 in or near Rowno.
-     She was of Czech descent.  Therefore, your hunch that her forebears came from Galicia is a good one.
-     Her father's first name was Franz.  I don't know her mother's name nor the names of any siblings.  
      A Franz Dedezius appears on the list published in the Zhitomir newspaper in 1916 of German colonists whose property was confiscated.  His property is listed under Toporitsche Rudnia.  Emilie lived in Olshovka (Olschewka) when the EWZ records were made.  As you know, these two localities are near one another.
     She and her family must have moved from the Rowno area to the Toporitsche area sometime before 1910, the year one of my father's brothers was born in Olshovka.  Her husband was born in 1975 in Rudnia Fassova.  I assume the marriage took place in the Toporitsche area. 
-     She was a Baptist at the time of the EWZ record.  She easily could have been Lutheran or Catholic at the time of her birth.

Thank you for your interest.
