Jack VIDAS married Mary BUDISCELICH (both from Croatia) and they had at least one son, Ivan "John" VIDAS (1878, Croatia - 1916, Illinois).

Ivan "John" VIDAS (1878, Croatia - 1916, Illinois) married Katarina BUTORAC (1882, Croatia - 1963, IL) in 1902 while still in Croatia. They had a son, Emerich "Emery" VIDAS (1903, Croatia - 1976, Michigan) while in Croatia. They were from Mrkpolj, Croatia which is near Sunger, Croatia. The three of them came to the United States (Illinois) and the VIDAS name changed to VEDAS: Ivan "John" VEDAS (1878, Croatia - 1916, Illinois) and Emerich "Emery" VEDAS (1903, Croatia - 1976, Michigan).

Katarina (BUTORAC) VEDAS had two sisters: Stefania "Stephie" BUTORAC (1894, Croatia - 1936, IL, US) and Maria "Mary" BUTORAC (1896, Sunger, Croatia - 1988, IL, US). In 1908, Stefania and Mary BUTORAC came to the US from Croatia on the S.S. LaProvence. On the ship's manifest, they list their grandmother, Petra SPORER, in Sunger, Croatia as their nearest relative in the country whence they came. They were going to join their brother-in-law, Ivan VIDAS, in Farmington, Illinos.

Katarina BUTORAC (1882, Croatia - 1963, IL) and Ivan "John" (VIDAS) VEDAS (1878, Croatia - 1916, Illinois) had three children: Emerich "Emery" VEDAS (1903, Croatia - 1976, Michigan), Therese VEDAS (1912, Illinois - 1991, Michigan), and Carl VEDAS (1914, IL - 1947, VA). After her first husband's death, Katarina BUTORAC (1882, Croatia - 1963, IL) married Kazimir MATKOVICH (b. abt. 1887, Croatia - IL). They had one son: Ladislav "Laddie" MATKOVICH (1919, IL - 2000).

Stefania "Stephie" BUTORAC (1894, Croatia - 1936, IL, US) married Jack VEDAS (1885, Croatia - 1968, IL, US) in Illinois. They had three children: Joe VEDAS (1911, IL - 1994), Ralph VEDAS (1912, IL - 1964) and Eva VEDAS (1914, IL - 1986).
