Petar ?

In a conversation with my father (Braco) back in the late 1970’s or early 1980’s, I had made a note of a Petar’s existence and I seemed to indicate that Petar was Jozo's older brother, but it is possible that the birth order is random or unknown. When asked, Seka had thought that Jozo was an only child, but admits that Braco or Vesna may have known otherwise. Interestingly, US immigration records (ellisIsland.org) show that  three Petar Murković’s emigrated to the USA in the early 20th century:

  1. The first Petar Murkovic arrived in 1910 read more... 
  2. The second Petar arrived in 1912, aged 36 read more ...
  3. The third Petar arrived in 1909....

If we could confirm that one of these Petar’s father was called Mate, the case would be very strong that any living American branch is related to us. It is possible that a son left the zadruga and used the money to emigrate to the USA.
