RE: [S-R] Need help with town locations in Slovakia: Orava, Lipni ca, Tersstena, Tablonka
- For Lipnica, try Lipnica Wielka in Poland, just over the Slovak border - a
small part of Orava county (about half of the disputed villages at the time)
was ceded to Poland after the breakup of Austria-Hungary.

Subject: [S-R] Need help with town locations in Slovakia: Orava,
Lipnica, Tersstena, Tablonka
Trying to find where the Lehosit family lived in Slovakia. Really confused
here. I have been told and found the following:
They were from the Orava region.
They were from Tersstena, Lipnica on the Austria-Hungary border.
Here is what I have found on maps and some immigration listings:
I have found the Orava Region; found the river and lake in northcentral
Slovakia near the Poland border.
I have found a Trstena, near the Orava Lake on Rt 59, northeast of the city
I brought up another map from Expedia.com and found another Trstena listed
just west of Martin. Are there two or is one of the maps incorrect?
On Lipnica; now that one has me stumped. I have found some immigrants with
Slovak names listing Lipnica as their former place of residence. Some just
say Lipnica and some say Lipnica, Hungary.
In 1902, a Karoly Lihosit 25, listed his place of residence before coming
TABLONKA. Now, that one has me really confused too. Can't find any name
like that. WE THINK HE IS THE RIGHT LEHOSIT FAMILY. The age is about right
and a Karoly Lehosit lived here in WV. We think his father was Karoly
Charles Lehosit who married Anna Saligo/Saliga about 1878.
Now, I suppose these people could have been spread out a bit in the years
before coming to America. Really need some help. I have looked at about
the maps I can find locally.
Thanks for the help...
