Help? Trying to make out some places of origin/residence from old Hungarian/Slovakian church records

I’m looking for some help with decoding some places of origin for some of my ancestors which I’ve found on Catholic church records in the Austro-Hungarian empire.

The link to the record below is regarding the death of a Joannes Hornyak, the last death of 1775 in Forro, Hungary. It appears his place of origin might be included in that death record? Can anyone make that out? I can see it’s saying county Zemplen, but is that word Braixaronia*spelling the place?

The link below here is regarding marriage of George Csulik and Maria Szilva in Miskolcz, Hungary. It appears his marriage includes his place of origin as Zubrocz? I tried figuring out what place this might be, and the closest record I found to this town name is an immigration record to Ellis Island indicating it was in Galicia, and they were of Polish and Ruthenian ethnicity. I was thinking this perhaps might be referring to Zbarazh in present-day Ukraine? It would have fallen inside the boarders of Galicia. Does anyone have any other suggestions as to what else this origin might be?

The link to the record below is regarding the death of Nicolaus Mrasz in Jaklovce, Slovakia, near Gelnica. I’m trying to make out his locality, it looks like Sloviuienis?

I have closer up pictures of all of these citations of origin for these ancestors if a closer look would help with any of them. I appreciate any suggestions you might have for the places the records are referring to. My experience with central/eastern European church records and locality name variation is fairly novice. Thanks again!
