Bill and Mary Murkovic from Lot/House 215, Fairchance, Fayette, Pennsylvania. Both were born in Slovakia, in 1870 and 1872 respectively. They arrived in the USA in 1900 and 1905 respectively. Bill was a coal miner. (per the 1920 US Census). They had two kids, Annie (1905-) and Joe (1907-). This family popped up in the 1920 census and we couldn't find anything else for them since.

Research on Joe Murkovic (1907-)
In the 1930 census, we find a Joseph Markovitz who was born in Pennsylvania in about 1906. He said his parents were born in Russia and he was a taxi driver. He married a Shirley Kalnick and lived with her family in Allegheny, Pennsylvania. They had a daughter, Geraldine. This may/may not be the same Joe from Bill and Mary.

Also in 1930, we find a Joseph Markovich, born in Pennsylvania in about 1909, he married Francis in about 1929, was paying $4 a month in rent for his home in Menallen, Fayette County, Pennsylvania. His Parents were both from Austria while her father was born in Itlay and her mother was born in Pennsylvania. He was a coal miner. The birth date is slightly out, but this is more likely to be Bill and Mary's Joe.
