1) You didn't say WHERE they were married. That makes a big
difference. If they married in the old country, they lived with TWO
2) Two of your surnames are quite unique. That allows playing "name
games" with the current phone listings. While not proof of anything,
the villages may serve to point you in the right direction.

CHURCH RECORDS AT LATTER DAY SAINTS (MORMON) LDS FAMILY HISTORY
When searching for genealogical information, knowing the birth
village is paramount because records are organized by village not
nationally, so it is not possible to search on a national basis. It
is also necessary to know the religion. To locate church records for
Slovakia, knowing the village/town name, go to the LDS web site:
LDS has Greek Catholic parish registers of baptisms, marriages and
deaths for Koice, Slovakia, formerly Kassa, Abauj-Torna, Hungary.
Text in Latin, Hungarian and Ruthenian. Indexed. Children baptized
in 1852-1911 were from mixed marriages, where one of the parents was
Greek Catholic and the other Roman Catholic. The children were Greek
Catholic even though baptized in the Roman Catholic church.
