I only have census records from here in the US showing Nick Loncar on most of them.
His Declaration of Intention for naturalization (dated 9 April 1915 Goldfield, Esmeralda, Nevada) is where I obtained the following information:
Nicholas Peter or Perov or Parov Loncar
Born: 25 September 1876
Where: Trabene (Trebenje) Austria
On the Vessel Fulbrant or Fuebrandt/Treboant
From: Gravosa, Austria
Port of Arrival: New York
Date: 1 March 1901
Draft Registration shows:
Birthday May 1891
Brenia, Croatia, Austria
His oldest child Peter wrote a history for our daughter that says that he was born in Trebenje, Herzegovina, Yugoslavia. Peter Sr. states that his father Nicholas Perov or Peter Loncar was born on 25 December 1976. He came to America on 1st day of March 1901. (Same as Declaration of Intention states). He worked his way across the United State of America doing all sorts of jobs (lay brick, labored at anything he could find). Pete says that his Dad headed for San Francisco, California. Supposedly left San Francisco the day of the great earthquake 18 April 1906. Walked and worked at various mines from California to Lida, Esmeralda, Nevada. Pete mentions when he visited Yugoslavia in 1978 he found that Nicholas Perov Loncar had 1 sister Angie died in Yugoslavia around about 1975 or 1977 had a daughter named Anne-no last name)) and 1 brother Steve. Steve Loncar had a son Nikola? A cousin possibly of Nicholas Perov Loncar (Michael Loncar) came to America and supposedly settled in Gary, Indiana, USA. Don’t have any more information on that one.
Pete’s notes from his visit in Yugoslavia in 1978 states that Anne, daughter of Angie still lived in Yugloslavia where Nicholas Perov Loncar was born. He also states that Anne’s two brother were killed by ‘Ustasha’/Croations Partisons.
Other than the above information I do not know of anything else.
Thank You so much for your willingness to help.
I am going to send this information to a Bosnia/Herzegovina website to see if they can help? Would that be more in the right place?
Thank You so much,
