That Dratted Handwriting: Szent-Györgyi in Vienna

May the inventor of Kurrentschrift rot forever in the deepest circle of Hell.

Matricula has (finally!) put some Reformed (Helvetic Confession) records from Vienna online, so I've found the baptismal records for my husband's great-grandfather and siblings. Trouble is that other than the names I already know, I can't read the entries. Could someone who is better than me at that D***ed Handwriting look through the following to see if there's anything there that I don't already know?

(To answer the question of what do I already know, I think I've mostly updated the tree on FS for this branchlet: https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/details/LCD3-PKB)

Bonus question: I can't find the birth or baptism of their only daughter, Emma. Barbara Kirchlehner was Catholic, so Emma was likely baptised Catholic, but the index at GenTeam is not coughing her up. There's a newspaper article about her death in 1927, reportedly at the age of 80, on the train from Vienna to Budapest; this would put her birth circa 1847. There's a book about Hungarian noble families which says she was born in 1846 in Vienna. Barbara would've been 43 in 1846, so the late child (and finally a daughter!) is not impossible, although dad Imre would've been 62 by then. However, I have not been able to find her birth, neither in Döbling (where her parents were married) nor in Schotten (where her one brother's birth and death are entered), and Vienna has Too Many Catholics for longhand searching.

Many thanks in advance for any enlightenment offered!
