Rojc's from Slovenia to Cleveland in the 1890's

I need help connecting some of the many Rojc's that came to Cleveland from Zuzemberk in the 1890's. I am looking specifically for a connection with Maria Rojc, my great grandmother (born abt 1870) who married Frank Kocevar, my great grandfather (born in 1864).

Frank and Maria lived in Cleveland in 1895, then went back to Zuzemberk in 1896 where they had my grandfather Frank, then moved back to Cleveland in 1899. The Ellis Island record says they were coming back to Cleveland to her brother Anton Rojc.

I have documented many Rojc's in the Cleveland area from Zuzemberk before the turn of the century. I'm trying to piece them all together. Mainly interested in those born around 1870 or earlier.

Bonus: Frank Kocevar family info (I know there are several Frank Kocevar's here in the 1890's). Daughters Frances (Modric) and Mary (Novak) with a different wife and Anna (Marincic) and sons Frank and Tony with Maria Rojc.

I'll see if I can get my mom to bake a potica for anyone who can help! :)

PS: people who were friends or related at the time in Cleveland: Fortunat Zupancic, Frank Glavic, Anton Pucelj, Joseph Mervar.
