Compiled from (2) trees and correspondence, which mentions Imre von Abalehota Arpassy being a cousin of Vladimir Arpassy, as well as cousin or brother of Helen Arpassy, Imre's sister. However the generations currently do not align and Imre is (1) generation younger than Vladimir. The Árpássy family was from the area of Lake Balaton, Hungary. *sources: Paul Doemeny (pdoemeny-at-aol.com), incl.

Note: Imre von Árpássy (cousin fo Vladimir below) was a very wealthy banker in Nytra, because he sold war bonds more than anyone else in Austria - he got the title (von) Abalehota. Dr. Istvan Szathmary, president of the Union, retired chief public notary of Nyitra Castle County, wrote on Jan 21, 1940: I personally knew Imre Arpassy from Abalehota, president ofthe Credit Bank of Nyitra, member of the legislature in Nyitravary, etc. He was a great Hungarian man, serving the Hungarian interests any which way he could. He was a relentless, selfless supporter of many a social and charitable movement, and he was especially well known for his good heart and exemplary family life. He was very popular and all Hungarians of that region grieved his early departure from this life in 1920. *Institut Deutsche Adelsforschung (Institute German nobility research) page hasthe name "Árpássy de Also-Arpas OR any relation to Aranka Verö (born Weiss) & Franz (see Boschan family) (1867 bur. 12/1/1937 Feuerhalle Simm.)

Hungarian article Oct 30, 1936: Great people lie in the Nyitra cemetery: "Right next to the entrance of the cemetery lies the grave of Imre Árpássy. Never in Nyitra's business and financial life has there been a more eminent person. He was a unique innovator with huge power such as has not been born in Nyitra since. He was born in the town of Nyitra in 1857, and received a very good education. After high school, he went on to study law and Trade Academy in Vienna. Returning home, he mastered practical skills on his father's huge estates. Soon, however, he felt the irresistible allure of the big world. He lived for a long time in England, and then went to Australia. From the world exposition in Melbourne he sent articles to Hungarian newspapers, with which he attracted the attention of the whole country. In 1882Árpássyreturned to his home country and took over the management of his father's estates. He was elected deputy in the local government and for a short while also served as honorary town councilor. He also became a member of the district judicial committee, in which he was very active as a member of various sub-committees. In 1887 he was elected director of the Nyitra Credit Bank, and under his direction the bank attained the class of the big national banks. In 1911 he was awarded the noble title of "abalehotai" for his well-merited achievements. He died on 23 February 1920. In less than a month, on 21 March, he was followed by his wife, ne'e Hermin Verö."
Note: translated letter: " Tibor Árpássy is accusing his older brother Aladar of embezzlement, fraud and blackmail in this paper he submitted to the court. He asks the court to arrest his brother speedily, since there is good reason to believe he is fleeing Czechoslovakia, going to Budapest, Hungary. Gyula Kovacs was Tibor's lawyer. Their father Imre passed away on Feb. 25, 1920; their mother on March 21, same year. They were four children left to inherit: Aladar, and two girls Miczi and Janka. The estate probation papers are at the court of Nyitra, no 931/1920. According to those, each child inherited 1/4 of the estate. However it was right after the war, while Tibor was still in the army, and the girls away in Austria or in Budapest, only Aladar was in Nyitra. He was the director of the Nyitra Credit Bank (Nyitra Hitelbank), which went bankrupt, while Aladar took out over 300,000 Korona from the bank. He also helped freely to his parents' money while they were away in Budapest (till July 14, 1919). During this time he also sold his parents' house in Varmegyehaz Street in the spring of 1919; also the villa in Zobor with all the valuable furniture in it became his, after he paid his siblings 50,000 Korona each for it; he then sold it to an American named Moller for 1,100,000 Korona and pocketed the money." *their uncle Zsiga Verö and Geza Verö are also mentioned
*2nd husband of Berta Breuer: Jacob Moritz (Moriz) SULKE Born: abt 1872 in Russia. Married: Feb 27, 1932 Atlantic City, NJ occupation: Merchant and Banker in New York *geni
Note: Hungarian newspaper "Ujsag" Aug 23, 1931 article translation: The Divorce of Tibor Árpássy. This just infrom Bratislava: There is a sensational new development in the divorce case of Tibor Árpássy ; the files of his case have been traveling between Vienna, Bratislava (Pozsony), Prague and America for years by now. As it is well known by now, the wife of Tibor Árpássy, who was born as Dora Breuer in Vienna, fell madly in love with an American millionaire a few years ago. Her husband didn't want to give her a divorce, so she accused him of plotting to murder her. Árpássy was sentenced for two years in prison on these false charges and while he was sitting in prison, his wife filed for divorce, this time being absolutely convinced that the court will grant her a divorce. However Tibor Árpássy succeeded in persuading the court - this time in Prague - to reopen his case, and the retrial of the case is underway as we speak. This was too much for Dora Breuer, who decided that she can't be bothered to wait anymore, and - as we just heard - eloped in July to America with her millionaire lover, Jacob Moritz Sulke. The lovebirds are staying in Reno, Nevada, which is a Paradise for people wanting to get a speedy divorce; here Dora Breuer is trying to take advantage of the special local Nevada laws to get rid of her lawful husband. She has already filed for divorce and paid the customary $30 000.00 fee to the court, for which divorce is granted in Reno to anybody. Tibor Árpássy received a subpoena from the Reno court two days ago ordering him to appear in front of the court in twenty days time to defend himself; otherwise a divorce is going to be given to his wife on the base that it is his fault for neglecting her in the last 12 months. It is a mystery at this point how did Dora Breuer manage to leave the country and go to America, since at this point she is still the lawful wife of Tibor Árpássy and as such, a Czech citizen; and the only way for her to get a valid Czech passport would have been if she would have been able to attach a permission signed by her husband to her passport application.
