My husband's family (Sterk) was from Predgrad. I don't know when they came there, but I had read also that many people came, perhaps from Germany, to the area to build castles. We were there recently, found many Sterk graves at Stari trg ob Kolpi. We were unable to find graves for his great grandparents there. We do think we found a grave and home for Mary Majerle's sister, Katarina Majerle Sterk.
My husband's grandfather, George, came to the Calumet Michigan area around 1899 to work in the copper mines. Mary Majerle from Predgrad came to the US to marry him. They were married in Calumet in 1901, later moved to Janesville, Wisconsin. George had a brother Peter who also came to Calumet, married Mary Kobe in 1904. Peter's family later moved to Cleveland.
From marriage record we know that George and Peter's parents were John(or Ivan) and Maria Sterk, and that Mary Majerle's parents were George Majerle and Maria Sustar. We are looking for more info on these people; dates of birth, places of birth, where they lived. Does anyone have info?
