      Unfortunately, I have just picked up on this thread. But I have this for this page.
      Sarriske Jastrabie is familiar to me since I drive through it on the way to my ancestral village of Hromos not far away.
      http://www.cisarik.com/map-8c.html is a page of a map Eastern Slovakia that you can click on the name of a village and get information. On the Sarriske Jastrabie page two current surnames there are Macura and Macurova. There is a list of surnames from the 1822 Greek Catholic church, it lists a Macsur. This seems to confirm your husband may still have family there.
      I did not understand what is being asked about Machut(ova). Which seems to be a surname and not a village name. The Fuzzy Gazetteer for Macura only offered Magura, Slovakia. Which is much further south than Sarriske Jastrabie.

      >>> My husband's family was actually Macura (I'm not certain if that's
      supposed to be MaƇura---I think it is pronounced "matzura"
      or "Makzura") Anyway, they were from Sarriske Jastrabie.<<<

      Closest I could find was Machut(ova). However, these seem not to be
      near S'arriske Jastrabie.

      Ellis Island shows Macut from Macuti, in Croatia.

      I love a mystery.
