Yes, the word kapusta means cabbage in Slovak.
Up to 1918 it was A-H http://users.erols.com/mwhite28/austhung.htm After the fall of A-H empire several new countries were formed and one was Czechoslovakia www.cgsi.org which in 1993 separated into Czech Republic and Slovak Republic.
Have you locate a precise place of birth for KAPUSTA and DUDRA ancestor? What was language of your ancestors? If they put down on an US census Slovak/Slovakland than the research is in present Slovak Republic.
An ALL site for research in Slovakia:
