Károly was the son of László Tóth and his wife, Zsuzsánna Bódogh. Both László and Zsuzsánna were born into noble Hungarian families. I have sourced the Tóth family's nobility back to four brothers on 26 Feb 1580, recorded three years later in Heves county in 1583. The four brothers are Ambruzs, Benedek, Imre and Jakab Tóth. Not much is known about them other than their names at the moment. I have sourced the Bódogh family back to 11 Jan 1611 with two brothers: Mihály and Péter. Them and their descendants were known to have lived in Miskolc and the Borsod county area.
László and Zsuzsánna were married on 15 Jan 1834 in Tiszadob. He was 19 years old and she was 17 years old. The witnesses to their marriage were István Horváth and István Vámos, who were not relatives. Note the word "nemes" before László's name in the marriage record. "Nemes" translates to mean "noble" in English.
Their first child was named Zsuzsánna and she was born the same year her parents were married, on 11 Nov 1834. She was baptized three days later on the 14th. She died two days later on 16 Nov 1834. Here is her baptism record:
Their second child was Károly. He was born on 09 Dec 1835 and baptized two days later on the 11th. You can find the information on him and his family on my previous post here. Here is his baptism record:
Their third and final child was Terézia. She was born on 29 Nov 1838 and was baptized two days later on 01 Dec 1838. Her marriage was mentioned in my previous blog about her brother Károly's family. You can find her marriage record here. Terézia was married to Imre Németh on 09 Jan 1856 in Tiszadob, the same day as her brother's marriage. Terézia and Imre had a total of six children: Terézia (1856), Zsófia (1858), Imre (1861), László (1864), Zsófia (1866) and János (1869). All of their children except one died: Terézia in 1856. The daughter Terézia went on to marry a farmer from Tiszaszederkény named Gergely Kis, on 29 Nov 1876. No baptisms for children are found for them in Tiszadob. Here is Terézia's (the mother) baptism record:
László died on 23 Nov 1870 at the age of 56 years old. On his death record he was listed as a "biró" - a judge. Zsuzsánna died seven years later on 10 Feb 1878, at the age of 62 years old.
