Karen,

As per Father's Baptismal Certificate his true name was more likely Wasyl (Ivanovych - son of Ivan) Momot.
===============================

As per Declaration of Intent for USA Naturalization dated April 23, 1938:

EOW MOMOT dob May 5, 1890 (migrated via Rotterdam as Ivan MOHMOD) was born in Kozmin Russia***. He and his wife, Paraskeva, (frequently anglicized to Pearl, Polly or Pauline) were residing at 2214 64th St. Bklyn. She was born 8/30/1897 in Podhieji > Austria***. Children listed : William dob April 14, 1918, Alexander dob Aug 30, 1919 and Henry 10/15/1927.
---------------------------------------------
Ellis Island ship manifest shows Deedo Ivan Mohmod (transcription error) as coming from Kozmin > Wohl. > Russia.

Grandfather's village is located appx 200 miles E of Kyiv (the capital city) in what was called Vohlynskaya gubernia/region >Tsarist Russia.*** It was founded in 1480, but archealogical digs on outskirts of the village indicate that there was settlement here, going back to the 11/12th century. TODAY the selo/village Kuzmyn (pop 2,028) is in Krasilivskij raion/district of the Khmelnytska oblast/region of Ukraine, latest zip code 31047.

***Grandfather probably said he was from a village not too far from Kyiv, the region. During Grandfather's time frame the Vohlynskaya and Kyevskaya gubernias abutted one another.
-----------------------------------------------------
Grandmother emigrated from Historic Galicia Province, administered by ethnic Poles for the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Hapsburg Emperors). Today this may be Pidhaijtsi > Ternopilska oblast > Ukraine.

Ternopilska and Khmelnytska regions also abut each other. Immigrants found comfort in marrying a spouse from their own region or district or in Grandfather's case from the same vicinity.

Does anyone know Grandmother's maiden name and maybe we can locate an immigration record which might tell us more about her exact origin? Immigrants frequently referred to their district center towns as places of origin, because their own villages were very small. Maybe manifest will show if she was from a village in Pidhajtsi or from Pidhajtsi, the town proper.
_________________________________

William probably baptized Wasyl
Alexander " " Olexandre
Henry " " Hryhorij ???

Where were Wasyl, Oleksa and Hrych baptised ? These are the names &/or nicknames their Mother called them.

Ukrainian church records are quite detailed. May very well contain Baba Paulina's place of birth and name of her parents???

Grandfather was Christian Orthodox. His village is listed as having its own Orthodox church and own Jewish kahal.

GRANDFATHER

Mohmod, Ivan from Kusmin, Wolh. Russia 19yrs old appx dob 1891 arrival Ellis Island 1910

Other Momot from same village. Some may have returned???
Moment, Sylvester Kosmin, Russia 32 1875 1907
Momid, Sochar Kuczmen 19 1888 1907
Momot, Arseny Kuzmina, Russia 17 1895 1912
Monsud, Simon Kuzmin, Russia 21 1891 1912

ORIGINAL SHIP MANIFESTS SHOW A GREAT DEAL OF DETAIL.

===========================
===========================
The Cossacks were not ethnically a homogeneous group. They were a bunch of bad boys that included all kinds of micro-ethnic groups from what is Eastern Ukraine today. What tied them together was their love of freedom.

It is important to keep in mind that if family story re Momot, a Napoleon deserter, is accurate, village records would not show any documentation pre 1813. Napoleon invaded Russia in 2nd half of 1812.
=========================
Momot does look like an exotic name, but today there are appx 8,500+ Ukrainians w/this exact surname. It is spread throughout entire Ukraine. In Kuzmyn there are STILL 123 villagers that carry Momot surname. I have listed only the males and transliterated their given and patronymic names. Based on this long list of Momot in Kuzmyn, I would say that your chances of locating Grandfather's surviving family are pretty good.
