  • Notes 
    • Was a building mason, tool and die maker at one time, and later a farmer after the war. Last contact was around 1955 asking relatives in U.S. for money to buy a tractor back in Europe, according to Joyce Wehofer (Daughter-in-law). provides 18 Wehofer gravesites in Mischendorf.

      Vas County arose as one of the first comitatus of the Kingdom of Hungary.

      In 1920 by the Treaty of Trianon, the western part of the county became part of the new Austrian land Burgenland, and a small part in the southwest became part of the newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (from 1929 as Yugoslavia). The remainder stayed in Hungary, as the present Hungarian Vas County. A small part of former Sopron county went to Vas county. Some villages north of Zalaegerszeg went to Zala County, and a small region west of Pápa went to Veszprém County. Yugoslavian part of the county was occupied and annexed by Hungary between 1941 and 1945 during World War II.

      Since 1991, when Slovenia became independent from Yugoslavia, the Yugoslavian part of former Vas county (known in Slovenian as Prekmurje) has been part of the Republic of Slovenia. In 1919 there was briefly proclaimed the Republic of Prekmurje, but it existed only 6 days, alike the Lajtabánság.

      In 1900, the county had a population of 418,905 people and was composed of the following linguistic communities:[1]


      Hungarian: 222,474 (53.0%)
      German: 125,570 (30.0%)
      Croatian: 17,896 (4.3%)
