    Notes 
    • Joseph came to the United States about 1879 and lived in Milligan about 18 years. He was an accomplished gymnast ans was a member of the Tel. Jed. Sokol, a gymnastic organization. He was also a member of the Independent Workmen Lodge. He disappeared mysteriously on November 23, 1897, after leading the family cow to the Vaclav KOTTAS pasture. His frozen body was found a couple of weeks later by John LUKSIK in the cornfield of Vaclav KOTTAS. It was determined by an inquest that all but one rib was fractured, and that one of his ribs had penetrated his heart. Foul play was suspected until his missing cash was found in his attic at home. It was believed a bull in caused his fatal injuries. (Milligan, p 317).
