Both Anton and Lucy Borich were born in Croatia, Yugoslavia, and came to America with their respective families in their early teens. Having resided in the Madrid area since the early 1900s, five children were born to their marriage.

Their children were: Barbara McClintic (72); Steve Borich (now deceased); Tom Borich (65); Nick Borich (63); Joe Borich (61); Emil (59); and Billy Borich (who died in World War II). All of their living children remain in the central Iowa area.

Anton spent most of his working life as a coal miner. He also worked for the county for a period of time, and worked at the Ordinance Plant during World War II. Lucy was always a busy mother. They were good, solid citizens who worked hard to support their family. Both are now deceased.
