I believe I am the great-granddaughter of the same Velma Krizmanich from that family from Houghton, MI.

We know of her sisters Mary and Rose(who married and became Rose Higgins & moved to Berwyn, IL)

If it is the same Velma, she was a Croatian immigrant as a kid with her family and later married Paul J. Baroni, a coal miner turned Baroni Sauce co. founder and immigrant from Italy to the Calumet area after world war one where he met her (though Velma had immigrated earlier) and had 3 kids: Claire/Dolly, Paul, and Gene (my grandpa). I have visited their old house before.

Gene Baroni went to Michigan Tech and worked in Chicago until he died. He had 3 sons including my dad (I'm 17).

Velma died when my dad was one, around 1967/1968.

Many of the children of Dolly and Paul Jr. still live near/around Calumet and Copper county MI. Some worked for the sauce company until it was sold in 2008.

We know more about the Italian side but very little about the Croatian Krizmanich side. I think we may be related! Any info would help, thanks!
