Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1855, Hungary
Death: 1918, Hungary

Below research confirms the area Alexander (Sandor) Farkas and his wife Anna Maczki lived when their son, Sandor Farkas, married Rozalia Gocza.

From parish Daruvar:
Alphabetic list for surnames Benko and Farkas from 1792-1900
Birth records:, 1874, 1891-1902
Weddings: 1885, 1892-1899

On Jun 5, 1904 were married Sandor Farkas ( b. on Nov 15, 1880 in Szt. Gyorgy in Hungary to parents Sandor Farkas and Ana Matzki, Sandor was waggon- maker, and he lived in Trojeglava ) and Rozalija Gocza ( her parents belong to evangelic reformator church).

Ref: Record found by Sanja (Frigan) Ciuha, professional researcher in Croatia.
To help interpret the letters from the Croatian researcher, Jozsef Laszlo at the Radix in Hungary corresponded with researcher, Nadine Hardin:

Szt. Gyorgy/Homok szt. Gyorgy/Homokszentgyörgy

Homok=Sand, Szent(szt./Szt.)=Saint, György=George in Hungarian, which is an agglutinative language and as such seemlessly glues them together. Before 1900, there were over 30 Szentgyörgy in Hungary, and hundreds of Szent...s. After 1900 all were given pre names, although locals are still using Szentgyörgy.

From: Radix - Genealogy research in Hungary, opening page has the search place window. Type in Homokszentgyorgy, it'll show it on the 1913 map of Hungary: - Place Status County (1913) District (1913) Current country. Homokszentgyörgy is a kisközség=(village) Somogy Barcsi Hungary

Bolho kt. Barcz zup. Somogy, Hungary:
Bolho ... kt./kot. most likely kk.=kis község=small village, Barcz zup(a)=Barcs járás=district, Somogy Megye=County

Trojeglavski majur = most likely Téglavár puszta/pusta/p., next to Trojeglava, belonged to Trojeglava tax district with Dezanovac district town. (Note: majur/major is a name for a small rural settlement, also can be called puszta/pusta/p., not shown on most maps.)

There is a highly detailed 1910 military map of Ausria-Hungary where is shown as Teglavar pst. I attached the map, look for it in the bottom, little bit to the left from the middle. Please see the military map on the right).

I double checked Petersalas, it's ... indeed Petersalas puszta in the same Daruvar District of Pozsega County, Croatia as Trojeglava and Teglavar puszta. Jurisdiction-wise belonged to Krestelovac, on the map I see a Peter east from Trojeglava, Krestelovac is north from Peter.
Note: The death date is estimated; for certain - Alexander Farkas died before his wife, Anna (Maczki) Farkas. Also, translated from English to Hungarian, Alexander becomes "Sandor."
