I have to wonder if you are talking about my grandmother who married Frank Celigoj (later americanized to Chaligoj) both my grandparents were Austrian My Grandfathers main language was slovenian they were married in the pickens wv area and had 7 sons and 1 daughter 2 of the sons died as small children and are buried in pickens wv my grandmother passed on a few years later at an early age and is buried in Buchannon Wv I beleive her grave has been moved to the city cemetery when the interstate was built shortly after her death my grandfather moved his family to doniphan mo away from the coal mines (per my grandmothers last wish) he never remarried and most of the family is in the doniphan mo area (ripley county) unfortunately in my fathers family they did not feel it necessary to relate any substansial information about the past at most they would tell a few trivial stories and when questioned just changed the subject I have seen a picture of my grandmothers gravestone and the spelling is Celigoj on it I also know there are relatives by the name of Bosic ?? in the Buchannon Wv area i beleive one was named John I have also heard the name Kovosic ?? I also know that my grandmother given name was Mary not sure how it was spelled my grandfathers english was very broken and hard to understand He passed away in 1974 I was 8 so memories are very scattered my father was the last of their children and passed away in June 2009 but there are many grand and great grandchildren in our family and many of us would like to know something of our history thanks for your time and who knows maybe the strings tie together John S Chaligoj
