I have been looking for a life of St. John (Popovich) who was martyred in 1926. Does anyone have any information on him?

I'm not positive, but I think he was featured in one of my Orthodox Word magazines.   What specifically are you looking for?

Anything, all I is his name and place and time of his martyrdom.

You've been asking the tough questions lately, someone might have to pull a book off of a shelf for this one.  The google is elusive.

Is this the saint you mean in this article:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Justin_Popovi%C4%87

The same article mentions that St. John Popovich knew St. John Maximovich of Shanghai and San Francisco:
Quote
In one of those fateful historical moments, fate brought St. Nikolaj Velimirovic, St. John Maximovich of Shanghai and San Francisco and the future saint Arch. Justin Popovich. together in Bitola. The young John Maximovich (a Russian of Serbian ancestry) was the assistant to Fr. Justin Popovich at the theological seminary there, while the Bishop of Ohrid was Fr. Nikolaj Velimirovic.

Is it true that St. John Maximovich of Shanghai and San Francisco was of Serbian origin or not?

No St. Justin and St. John are two different saints. Notice the year of death on St. John.

If I could find my answers on Google I would not be asking the questions.

Sorry: I need to wear my glasses more often or increase the print on my monitor because I didn't even notice the two different Christian names only the common surname.  Were they related?

I do not think they are related but the possibility exist. The last name means "Priest Child" and it quite common amongst the people of Slavic origins.

No St. Justin and St. John are two different saints. Notice the year of death on St. John.
