Paul was single and killed in a mining accident in Appanoose County, Iowa. Valentine married Fanny Buban.The had one son, Joe and 3 daughters.They lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Ivan John Butkovich's father, was killed in a logging accident in Yugoslavia.Apparently a tree fell on him while he was chopping down trees in the mountains.(There is another version of this, but I don't recall what exactly was supposed to have occurred.)
