I wanted to share this family photo with the community. Location: Lincoln, Illinois. Date: 1918. My wife's grandparents, Filipina Stefancic and Joseph Sojat were both immigrants from Croatia. Joseph, a coal miner was killed 12 years later in a freak car accident. Many suspected foul play due to his union activities.
