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 10 documented houses in church documents to be considered a “new” house in Hrast. The best estimate for the construction of these series of houses is after 1830.
The Gorše family that originally inhabited this house is an offshoot of the Gorše family of Hrast 35.
The oldest record we have found to date for a person from this house is for Jernej Gorše (Hrast 35) b. 1812. He married Katarina Rogina b. 1813 in 1836. Together they had 10 children, including:
1A. Nikolaj Gorše b. 1841, m. 1867 to Ana Barič (Baričeva from Stara Lipa) — they remained at this house.
1B. Ana Gorše b. 1846, m. ca. 1868 to Jurij Kobetič (Kovačev from Drežnik).
1C. Jurij Gorše b. 1847. At this time, it is unknown what happened to him afterwards.
Nikolaj Gorše [1A] and his wife Ana Barič had 4 children, including:
2A. Ana Gorše b. 1866, m. 1888 to Johan Kobetič (Mikulinov from Nova Lipa).
2B. Johan Gorše b. 1874, m. 1894 in Steelton, Pennsylvania to Ana Flajnik (Janšanova) — they returned to live at this house.
