Some Ancient History
http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://http://www.zakarpattja.westportal.net/eng/5.html

The present Puste Cemerne, SK went by following names :
Mark-Csemernye, Postj Cz'emerne, Mark-Cschemernye, Mark-Csemernye, Cz'emerne, Markcsemernye.

The LDS-Mormons (Family History Center) website has Greek Catholic church records for Puste Cemerne. My GUESS is the your Voronyaks were Hutsul???

There are appx 6+ Ukrainian villages w/same name Vorona (crow) or Vorony (crows).
Vorona/Vorony are also popular village names in Belarus & Russia. Croatia, Bulgaria, Slovakia etc also use the name, but it appears as spelling variant, Vrona/y, Vrene/y etc.
