According to Where Once We Walked, Melykut, Hung; had a pre-war Jewish pop.
of 71. Located 64 km W of Szeged at coordinates 46o13'/19o23'.

YadVaShem's Encyclopedia of Jewish Life Before and Duringthe Holocaust says
that the J. pop. was 113 in 1909 and 71 in 1930. The Jews were deported to
Auschwitz via Bacsalmas in May, 1944. They add that it was in the
Bacs-Bodrog district.

Good luck!
