Fodor Family Genealogy Forum
I had suspected, but was uncertain, that 'Magyaroszag' was a generalized term. I have yet to see any documents indicating a Megye, but I may have such in some of the papers I have yet to review. I'll have to review why I have written in the database that "all the Fodor's seem to have come from the same general area near the Austria/Hungary border." Need to determine if this is a documented statement, or something from family oral history, or otherwise. It may be a presumption on my part based on the fact that the 1920 U.S. Census lists some of the family as being from 'Hungary' and others from 'Austria,' but what should I expect from the once combined empire?
The 1920 census does not show my Rose Fodor's year of immigration. Her husband Stephen Coy, is listed as immigrating in 1896 (Natlzd. 1916). I have not yet had time for a detailed search of the Ellis Island data for a record there. If Rose and Stephen were married before immigration, her record might be under the Coy surname (assuming the 'Coy' spelling is used for the records). Stephen Coy and Rose (Fodor) Coy lived on Larado Street in Port Vue, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania in 1920, and they had the following children: Alex, Richard, Stephen, Frank, Rose (b. 1907), Ethel, Lydia and Samuel (all born in Pennsylvania according to 1920 U.S. Census). Rose Fodor's brother, Stephen (b. 1860) immigrated in 1890 (along with his son Albert), and Stephen Fodor's wife, Anna (Liskay) immigrated in 1891. Albert's wife, Catherine 'Katie' (Lepado) immigrated in 1890. Thanks for any useful information, and let me know what else I can share that might be helpful. SES
