Charles Zarka born Hungary 1886

Searching for my wife's Hungarian ancestry, here's what I have so far: Charles Zarka Jr. b. St. Louis, MO 12/13/1910 wife's grandfather, married to Florence McKenzie. His father, Charles G. Zarka Sr. b. 05/25/1886 in Hungary, don't know where, immigrated to U.S. in 1909 and supposedly lived in PA for short time before moving to Crystal City, MO, wife was Mary Toth (also b. Hungary). Then moved to Ottawa, IL.
His parents were George Zarka and Lena Botani both from Hungary who also immigrated to US around the same time. Family history tells of 2 stories, one that Charles Sr. oldest daughter (b. hungary 1904/5) used to play with the princess leading me to believe they lived in Budapest, and 2) that Charles Sr. was a "Horseman" who received a watch from the King of England after winning a race. Any help would be appreciated.
