IN 1910 JOSEPH(JOSIP) MATKOVIC AND HIS PREGNANT WIFE ANNA JOURNEYED FROM AUSTRIA-HUNGARY TO THE USA. IN NOVEMBER 1910, IN COLD CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, ANNA BAKIC-MATKOVIC GAVE BIRTH TO THEIR FIRST SON, JOHN. CERTAINLY JOSEPH MUST HAVE WRITTEN TO HIS BROTHER IN THE ARMY. ANNA MUST HAVE WRITTEN TO HER PARENTS. IN AUGUST 1914, JOSEPH AND ANNA HAD A SECOND SON DANIEL. THEY TRAVELED THE COUNTRY WITH THEIR TWO SONS, KANSAS CITY, MASON CITY IOWA, AND FINALLY SETTLED IN SIOUX CITY, IOWA IN 1919. IN 1920, JOSEPH VANISHED. LATER, ANNA WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A FATAL DISEASE.
HER PRECIOUS SONS WERE PLACED IN FOSTER HOMES AT AGE 10, AND 6 THIS WAS A TRUMATIC EXPERIENCE FOR BOTH BOYS. IN 1923, ANNA DIED ALONE IN OTTUMWA IOWA. SHE NEVER SAW HER HUSBAND, OR CHILDREN FOR 2 1/2 YEARS BEFORE PASSING. HER PARENTS STEPHEN BAKIC, AND JULIA VUKSIC-BAKIC NEVER WOULD SEE THEIR GRANDCHILDREN.
