The correct spelling is Anton, not Antone.

And the correct original spelling of the surname is POSAVEC (in this case the C sounds like tz or ts)

Both of them were Slovenian, which was under the rule of Austria until after WW I

This may be Anton's ship manifest

Given Name:Anton
Last Place of Residence:Trgenisci, Austria
Date of Arrival:28 Mar 1910
Age at Arrival:23y
Port of Departure:Trieste
Port of Arrival:New York City, New York, New York
Marital Status:S
Ship of Travel:Martha Washington
Destination NYC

The transcribers made an error Anton was from Trgovišče which is located in Slovenia 79.6 miles ENE of Ljubljana near the Croatian border

the arrival info concurs with Anton's Petition for Naturalization (see attachment) his birth location is given as Steirmark, which was the province where Trgovišče is located

And this may be Josephine's arrival info

Name:Josefa Pirc
Arrival Date:13 Nov 1906
Birth Year:abt 1888
Birth Location Other:domzale
Port of Departure:Antwerp, Belgium

Domžale is located 7 miles ENE of Ljubljana

Both PIRC and POSAVEC are common names in Slovenia.
