      Tiny Drahová (Sk) is located about 127 miles ENE of Bratislava and
      near Utekac^ .
      Now in okres (district) Luc^enec.
      Kévesliget means 'little grove' in Magyar.

      What was surname religion ?
      Doubt it was Roman Catholic ?
      Probably G.C.

      R.C. parish church records (1804-1895) for Drahová are listed under
      Kokava nad Rimavicou.
      Text in LATIN and HUNGARIAN.
