Searching for Aunt or descendants

Classification: Query
Surnames: Benka, Kovacs
My husband's aunt, Mary Benka, was lost to her family after her mother died in November 1919. My husband's maternal grandfather, Stif or Steven Benka, 1881 (or maybe 1890) and died 1951 came from Slovakia in the early 1900s (guessing on this). He married Ursula Kovac and between 1908 and 1919 six children were born to them. Ursula or "Annie" died in late 1919. The children were counted twice in the 1920 census: once in their home with their widowed father and 12 days later in St. Michael's Orphan Asylum in Mercer, New Jersey Hopewell Township, Both Steven and Ursula are buried at Saints Phillip and James Cemetery, in St. Phillipsburg, Warren County, New Jersey.
