1901, number 15:
Nov. 11, bride Ficsor Mária.

It's confusing when the registrar's name is the first thing on the page like this. It also doesn't help that they got his mother's name wrong. It's definitely him, though: he was the only child born on Sep. 21, 1877 in Sarud, and one of the witnesses has the same surname as his godmother (Pócs).

Here's his wife's birth/baptism, a few pages before his:
Unfortunately, the pastor was apparently not much into helpful marginal notations.

Ah! Finally a child, a son Béla in July 1903:
Béla's second marriage:

And another, Vilmos (William) in Dec. 1904:
This one has an addendum "2/1944". Turns out he was murdered (stabbed in the back) in Feb. 1944:
The interesting thing is that his father is listed as "the late", but his mother is not.

Oh: their first child, György, was illegitimate, in 1899:
There's no notation about retroactive legitimacy, but the child certainly used his father's surname, not his mother's:
Notice that his little brother Béla's first marriage is the one right after his.

I think this is György Jr.'s arrival in New York in 1923:
His destination is his father "Gyorgy Torok" in Flint, Michigan.

The 1877 György's eldest sibling was a brother named János, born in 1867:

And here's that brother's marriage:
(Number 12, Nov. 15, 1892, bride Borbála Csuhai.)

First child (item 145):
Second child:
And a marriage of one of their kids, indicating that they were both deceased by 1923:
