KOVACS would be Hungarian/Magyar spelling of
KOVACH/KOWATCH/KOWACH/KOVATCH - English; KOVAC^ - Slovak ~ almost same pronounciation.

Yes, Genieve is not an Magyar first name so someone already took an English/American name after being in US, maybe when naturalized.

Some mistakes were done at the port of departure by a shipping clerk who was copying the information from an ancestor's document on the shipping manifest. So it would seem that the US transcriber transcribed a location incorrectly as Tolesva instead of Tolcsva.

Kovacz, Ferencz Tolcsva, Hungary 28 1883 1911
Barnovsky, Miklosh Tolesva 37 1861 1898

Tolcsva, ZemplÚn megye, Hungary*,0,0

From where do you get the information Genieve Bruinyovski was born on 18 December 1862......

SKY/SKI ending is a Slavic ending.

If the ancestors married in "old country" than the villages would be within 10 miles radius.
