While most houses in Slovenia carry a household name, there are some houses which do not exist anymore and were deserted many years before anyone was aware of their existence. The household names for these houses is therefore lost as it was not documented anywhere either.
This house is the first of three documented houses in church documents to be considered a “new” house in Damelj. The best estimate for the construction of this house is around 1840.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Jurij Žagar. He married Ana Peršetič. Together they had 1 child, which died in infancy.
Jurij Žagar m. 1842 to his second wife Lucija Kobe (Draga 17). Together they had 9 children, including:
1D. Peter Žagar b. 1860. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
Shortly after Jurij Žagar and Lucija Kobe stopped having children, Jože Žagar moved in with his wife Marija Žagar (Rim 2).
Jože Žagar and his wife Marija Žagar had 5 children, including:
2A. Johan Žagar b. 1871, m. 1901 to Lucija Brozovič (Filipčeva from Draga) — they remained at this house.
2B. Katarina Žagar b. 1877, m. 1904 to Matija Medved (Dalnje Njive 14).
Johan Žagar [2A] and his wife Lucija Brozovič did not have any children.
