I think these records are for your great-grandfather John Garley (aka Jan Garlej) born in Nameszto, which I think use to be in Hungary, now Slovakia. Try to verify.

***I can't make out who he was going to in Chicago, Illinois.
His signature looks like John Garlej? or Garley?, even though it is indexed as Girlon, and looks like Girlay?
