About Johann / Ivan Markun

He was Franz Karun first cousin, not sure on which side

Karun je morao obavijestiti i suprugu svoga rodjaka Sloveniji da joj je muž poginuo. Tragedija je bila tim veca, jer je Markun iza sebe, uz suprugu, ostavio petero djece i ogromne dugove. Naime, u Ameriku je otputovao kako bi zaradio dovoljno da otplati dugove zbog kupnje kuce i okucnice, a sada se sav teret svalio na ženina
