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.
