Do you have their immigration info?

Perhaps this is Milos' arrival
Name: Miloke Boic
Arrival Date: 1 Nov 1903
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1883
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Havre
Race­: Montenegrin
Ship Name: La Touraine
Destination Wheeling WVA

I can not find Milena BOICH nor KOLARIC(H) arriving at any port of entry. KOLARIC is a Croatian surname, root is Kolar, from Kolo meaning wheel, meaning of kolar is a wheelwright or wagon maker, IC ending sounds like ich and means son of.

I do find them in the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census all in Belmont Co, OH

This would appear to be Milena's death record

Maybe you have seen the original copy but the father was most likely Blaz from St. Blasius and the last name????
