Mary did have a son named Frank. Maybe she named him after her brother.
I have not given up the possiblity that this is the correct Mary. The death and birth dates are very close for her. I have seen the family tree for Janez and Marija Tegelj and they all list the death of Janez as 1935. I know for a fact that the Mary I am looking for remarried by 1919. Her first child with John Hribernik was born in 1919. If Janez and Marija that you list are the correct couple, then this means that my aunt may be wrong and her father was not killed but the couple divorced and they never saw him again. I am not discounting the possiblity but how likely is that? And she does remember the mine company paying for his funeral but would not pay any death benefits. Another possiblity is that the death year is incorrect for Janez Tegelj on all the family trees that I have seen. I have seen no documented souce for the death year. Do you know of any source for his death year?
Thanks in advance
