It appears that Erzsébet Zsoka, lived a very hard life as a tenant farmer, in Vendégi, alongside with her mother. She also was the unmarried mother of, at least, two sons. Her own mother, Maria Fabriczky Zsoka, was a widow, and they lived in a room ( aj - zseller ) with other boarders as tenant farmers by 1830's. They died a day apart of a fever due to cholera.

Erzsébet Zsoka was 29 years old when she died in poverty. The sons Erzsébet left behind were János Gazsy-Zsoka and Josef Viro. Josef was two years old; János was eight years old. They may have died before she did [1] Assumption is that they may not have survived and if they did survive, were sent back to their fathers (if living) or farmed out. Josef Viro was born 8 Oct 1839 in Hosťovce, Slovakia and Janos Gazsy was born 5 Oct 1833 in Hosťovce.

Erzsébet's own mother died the day before her; her siblings were gone too. Her children were technically orphans unless their fathers were alive or the father's families took them in.
