George, My grandmother was Anna Ellenich (Elenic) from Crnomelji (Butoroj). She came over in 1904 with her son John. She also had a brother here by the name of John. He died in Calif in the mid-60s. My grandfather was Matthew Zvab (Schwab). He came over in the 1880s. They lived in Manistique, MI. His sister Neza married twice, a Rozman and a Marinic. There is a niece/nephew of the family living in Ohio.
John Schwab Jr. lived in LA but died in Lima, Peru. His family is still in the LA area. Other names from the Manistique area that I am familiar with, Kotchen, Stimac, Branch. Hope there is a connection.
