Presumably you already have this?:

It lists the father Joseph's occupation as "juhászbojtár", which is "shepherd's boy" -- but in this case is probably better translated "assistant shepherd" or some such, because his age is given as 37. Based on said age and his birthplace Egerszólát, which is listed in the 1877 gazetteer as Felsőszólát, I found this in "Hungary Catholic Church Records, 1636-1895":
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X28M-345
Name: Josephus Nagy
Event Type: Baptism
Event Date: 08 Apr 1866
Event Place: Felsőszólát, Heves, Hungary
Gender: Male
Father's Name: Josephus Nagy
Mother's Name: Julianna Magyar
Line Number: 26
GS Film number: 623849

Based on the mother's age of 24 and her birthplace Füzesabony, I found this, also in Catholic baptisms:
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X2HY-YT5
Name: Eszter Csaszar
Event Type: Baptism
Event Date: 05 Sep 1880
Event Place: Füzesabony, Heves, Hungary
Gender: Female
Father's Name: Lajos Csaszar
Mother's Name: Margit Bagyi
Line Number: 135
GS Film number: 623861
Digital Folder Number: 004620866
Image Number: 93

You may be able to go back another generation on each of them by searching the same FamilySearch index, assuming their families didn't move (which is pretty likely but not guaranteed). It'll be harder for Joseph's side, because Nagy 'big, elder' is and always has been one of the 5 most common surnames in Hungary.
