I have been searching for a long time and have finally identified my great grandmother's maiden name as Mary [Marija?] Pucelj or Putzel; both are confirmed spellings. She was born on January 2, 1844 in Slovenia. I do not know exactly where, but her second husband, Anton Gore, was from the Ribnica area, probably Dolenja vas. She remarried after the death of her first husband, Thomas [Tomaz?] Knaus.
I believe she had three brothers, two of whom became priests. I have posted some very old photographs of people I believe to be Mary, her parents, and the two brothers who became priests to the Gorsha Photo Album on our family website. I will have to update the captions to reflect this new information soon. Would you please check your research notes and see if she appears anywhere within them?
