WV Cemeteries used by Hungarians in the early 1900s

WV Cemeteries used by Hungarians in the early 1900s

I am wondering if there were any cemeteries that the Hungarian groups used back in the early 1900s in Mingo/Logan Counties. I have some graves I'm searching for but can't seem to locate any information on where these folks are buried. I have not yet been able to take a trip to WV to conduct some research. I know the dates these folks passed but not where they are buried and WV records are sparse online.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!!!

They probably came to WV to work on the Railroad or the Coal Mines. Do you know their faith? Many church cemeteries around. Type in WV Coal Camps and read the towns,also the State of WV has an excellent site to look up death, marriage and birth records. Listing your last name will help your search, as you may still have relatives in WV. Hope this helps you.

Unfortunately I do not know their faith. I do know a few of them are said to have worked in the mines but I have found nothing as of yet to substantiate that. I have looked up the deaths on the state site ... some aren't found at all and some have very minimal information. I am in touch with a couple relatives who are still in the state but they know less than I do.

I thank you very much for your response and I will do some more searching as you suggested. I appreciate any help I can get :-)

The names are Antal, Spotilla, Horvath, Toth

Have you tried the WV vital records website? I find a lot of Toth, Horvath, and so on listed in the death records from the early 1900s.
