LUKA BOROJEVIĆ, son of Marko and Nediljka Sredlić Kragić, was born in Split on October 9, 1860. In 1906, he emigrated to the north in the mountainous part of Peru to the town of Huallanca. He had the El Socorro silver mine there. In Split, he was survived by his brother Mate (born in 1856), who married Marija Matković. Their six children were: Vicko (born in 1885, married to the Czech Barbara Paleček, they had a son Miljenko 1911 – 1978, married to Marija with whom he had a son Vinko), Andrijana (1886, unmarried), Ivanica (1888 – 1890), Stefanija Elizabeta (1890 – 1958, unmarried), Marko and Antoneta married to Giudica, whose descendants live in the Chicago area.

At the end of the 19th century, the family changed its surname to Borović.

The son of Luka Borojević (today Borrovic), Alejandro Borrovic Alonzo married Marciala Gaspar. From this marriage, Helen Borrovic Gaspar was born, who married Carlos Gutiérrez Pardo, and they had a son, Wilfreddy Lucas Gutierrez Borrovic.
