I agree w/Zlateca.

Marya Krzywa (surname means crooked in Polish - there was/is a village by that name very close by) was from wies/village Witkow Stary > Radziechow (Polish name) was both the administrative and judicial/tax district> Lwowskie Wojiwodstwo/Region > Halychyna (in Ukrainian) / Galicia, administered by ethnic Poles for the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Marya, a Ruthenian/Ukrainian young woman (18 yrs old - born appx 1896) was an Austrian citizen. The filial Roman Catholic and Greek Catholic Churches were in Radziechow.

Marya was meeting up w/her sister, Piotra Hiler??? in Florida NY. She left behind her father Stephan and possibly Marya, her mother, behind in village.

TODAY Starij (Old) Vytkiv is a hamlet and shares the post ofc in Novij (New) Vytkiv. It would not be unreasonable to think that there is still surviving family in the area. Once you get more detail re Marya, consider writing the Village Administrator and inquiring re surviving family still there. Using Ukrainian at local level is ideal.
