  1. Elizabeth Odel said:

    He was from Prvan Selo (Perusic) Lika-Senj Croatia. His last name was in fact Ecimovic (some of the family went by Hecomovic). An inaccuracy that his 'real' name was Ćulumović and Ecimovic was just his 'calling card' name. His family were married into the Oreskovic family (also lost passengers on the Titanic) for a half a century in the region of Lika.
