Amy, please KEEP the family stories on the backburner, as the saying goes. It is the documents that you can only go by and take it to the bank.

What other US documents do you have on your KOVACS ancestor? Just to confirm that Tolcsva is the place. The children's church baptismal record should double confirm his place of birth.

The church records of Tolcsva should be explored:

Tolcsva populated place 4817' N 2127' E E M U G Hungary 122.2 miles ENE of Budapest 4730' N 195' E
The location not that far from Slovakia's border.
