I recognize the name

Hi, Mary.
I thought you might be interested in knowing this. In a village near Uzhorod where I was born, there is an old graveyard where I remember seeing a grave with a barely readable inscription on a wooden cross: Kvochko. The name is not just rare, it is unique for the village and vicinity. Even 30 years ago the grave was so old already that noone from the village could tell anything about who was buried there. There is no trace left, which is a strong indication that the descendants may have left the country. It was typical for those times. A lot of people from this and other villages nearby, including some of my ancestors' relatives, went abroad and settled in the US and Canada.
I'm moved by finding your post today. What has been an old, isolated, almost forgotten memories, has suddenly come back to life again in the form of this photograph. What a small world we live in...
Thank you
