Obiteljski spor izazvala je i isplata odštete za poginulog Luku Oreško-viæa. U molbi, koju je 9. rujna 1915. napisala Lukina majka, Maèa, stoji: Tužna sam i žalosna stara sirota bez ikoga svoga, ko bi me do smrti uzdržati i dohraniti mogao. Imala sam tri sina, naime Štipana, Tomu i Luku, i sva tri su boreæi se za život i obstanak u tudjem svijetu poginuli. .. najmlaði sin Luka ostao mi zadnje poufanje, ali i on pošao u Ameriku, namjeri se na nesretni parobrod Titanic koji je nesretno potonuo i moj sin Luka na njemu smrt našao.

Sva tri sina ja sam u velikoj biedi odhranila i na noge postavila krvavim dlanima i znojem lica svoga, a sad sam ostala bez svoih 

sinova i svake nade i pomoci. Moj sin Luka bio mi je jedino poufanje i utjeha moja, bio je oženjen, i tako ostade iza njega njegova supruga Jeka i jednogodišnje žensko diete...
