John,

Could this be your family as found in the 1930 Jordan, Ripley, Missouri? All the children were born in WVA

There is a Joseph BOZIC found in the 1920 Randolph, Mingo WVA census.... maybe this is the name you have a BOSIC?

Maybe this is the BOZIC connection, which is found in WVA marriage records

This Mary CELIGOJ (Maria CELIGOI on the manifest) arr 1922 destination Pickens WVA her next of kin in the old country was her father Giovanni CELIGOJ at P. Bisteriza destination to her uncle Frank CELIGOJ at Pickens WVA

Seems like many of the CELIGOJ in US immigration records come from the region near the Postojna caves (which are fantastic!) Franc or Franz (English Frank) is listed as coming from Adelsberg Austria which is now Postojna Slovenia
