Jure (George) Murković (19, born 1890), travelling with Ivan Murković (43, born 1866) arrived in NY on 16 May 1909. Jure Murković was in Jezerane; his father was Mate Murkovic from Jezerane and he was heading to Cedar River, Michigan1 to see Joso Tonkovic(?). It seems however that he ended up as a boarder in District 57, Scranton Ward 1, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania. A year later in the 1910 census2, there was a 20 year old George Murkovich in Pennsylvania who had arrived in the US in 1909. He said he was a coal miner3.

Note 1: the record is difficult to read, but it seems like "Ed... River, Michigan" It certainly starts with an "E", but maybe there may have been some misunderstanding. There are no towns in Michigan that have "River" in their name that begin with "E". So, the odds are, they were headed to Cedar River, Michigan. The record could read "Edar River" and that could be a communication problem.

Note 2: In 1910, it was also recorded that he was Russian-Lettish (Latvian), however everyone in that area of the census was Russian-Lettish and it's possible that the census taker was inaccurate or lazy. Then, years later, the data capture was done incorrectly - the data capture did not pick up the "r" and incorrectly translated the "v" as an "r" i.e. he was recorded as "Mukoric".

Note 3: Ten years later, in the 1930 census, there was a 32 year old George Markovic, married with kids, in the same area. There some discrepancies: spelling - "a" vs. "u"; age - 32 vs. 30;  date of immigration - 1902 vs. 1909. These discrepancies seems to rule out the possibility that George Markovic = George Murkovic. It may be worth checking this out some more one day: he had a wife, Anna and three daughters Anna, Margaret and Julia. 1920 Census
