He immigrated to ohio in 1912 through Canada, entering from vermont. he came alone and was 12/13. I believe he was born 1899. He died in 1940 in train wreck. he was the fireman on the train.
I don't know a lot. My grandma doesn't tell a lot of story's related to Macedonia except that he made wine and all the other Macedonians would come over and drink..hahaha
She said there were family members in Macedonia he wrote to but when he died in 1940 communication stopped.
