The surname MILOŠEVIĆ is found in Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and a couple of other Slavic countries. In Croatia the name is 138th most frequent name. Translated this would be son of MILOŠ

You mentioned she arrived in the US in 1914. Did she arrive under the name MILOSEVIC? Or another name?

Mr. Jerin,
I found more info on Antonia Milosevic...Could you help me? I think she came over by Tonica Milosevic 1914 with a Maria Radosevich. Also an Antonia Radosevich, and a Maria Radosevich? I had her birthdate as 1894 in Lic, but this states 1903???

Whom did she marry in the US?

Where did she live in the US?

What about this son, Stanislav?

Tonica is a pet name for Antonia.

Did you notice her destination was to "adoptive father" Luka at Hibbing MN

There is a notation over he Occupation Column which indicates she filed for US Citizenship at INS District 25 in 1941. In that year the INS District included El Paso, TX Serving west Texas and Oklahoma, New Mexico There is a notation 505, which meant there was a discrepency in her info, perhaps it was that she was married when she naturalized or perhaps her age?

Also she and those traveling with her were detained for less than a day the only notation is Under Age.

There is another possibility, this one is married, destination Eureka CA to husband

Name: Antoni Milosevc
Arrival Date: 16 Nov 1912
Birth Date: abt 1889
Age: 23
Gender: Female
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Philadelphia
Former Residence and birthplace Lic next of kin her father Anton
Destination Eureka CA to husband Ivan
MY NOTE, the age could be 20 instead of 23, it is not really clear

Mr. Jerin, Thank-you for your response..I am very new at this, and am totally overwhelmed...What I do know is:she was married to my great-grandfather Stjephan Starcevic b.1869(?), Lived In Australia between 1911-19??. She lived in WA state with Steve Starcevich and her children; John, Virginia, Stanley,Steve Jr. and Charles..Stanislaw(v) may have been out of wedlock??? I see that he died in concentration camp 1943?? This was never discussed with us, and no one in my family recalls him, or a story about a son..She was quite adventureous and wild! I thought she had a sister named Mary whom passed away in Iowa/Illinois? Any direction from you would be greatly appreciated, as I cannot stop this search until I discover her parents...Thank-you, Jana Minerich-Begin

Something does not add up! I see where someone named Stanislav B. STARCEVIC died at Mauthausen/Gusen Concentration Camp in 1943. But he was born in 1911. Which would make the MILOSEVIC you found on the 1914 manifest 7 at the time of his birth!

STARCEVIC is a surname of over 2% of the Croatian population, so unless you know otherwise the one who died in WW II may not have been related.

Stanislav would be Stanley in English.

Found on the manifest below is Tonica and Stanislav STARCEVIC, birth location Lic (sounds like leach) destination Roslyn WA to husband/father Stjepan STARCEVIC. Her nearest relative in Lic is listed as her father Juro (=George in Eng) STARCEVIC.

In re to Stjepan's birth year, census records would indicate his birth year as 1883ish.

Could the family lore meant Austria instead of Australia? Croatia was under the rule of the old Austro-Hungarian Empire until after WW I, 1918.

Mr. Jerin,
I believe she arrived as Antonia Milosevic through Ellis Island around 1914...I also found her listed as Tonica Milosevic born 1903? This has been so confusing..I found a Shimon Milosevich/Pauline Starcevich who MAY be her parents but cannot find any info oon them to confirm..
