Thanks so much John for your continued help.
I saw Nikols MIKLICS on the Morse hits and thought for sure I had him until I looked at the birth year of 1880. My guy was born in 1861.
Looked thru the records for Stropkov and Nizna Sebastova.
I found a long shot in Stropkov - #11 Nicolaus, born Dec 16, 1861, different surname, but it was an illigitimate birth. Record doesn't indicate a later change to legitimate. Besides, there is that little +, which I'm pretty sure indicated the child died.
Nothing at Nizna Sebastova.
I cann't seem to find Roznava/ Haèava,Ko¹ice-okolie, Slovakia.
I can work my way through the records once I find them, but I have trouble getting to them jsut from the village name.
