Andreas Hrachovič + Maria Holcovsky 1790-1798

Dear All,

I have a rather hard ask for you in the Czech Republic.
My ancestor, Josephus Varga married a widow called "Maria Hrachovisch".

I managed to find, that she was the widow of a young carpenter Andreas Hrachovisch and her original name was Maria Holcovsky.
Andreas had died in 1798 in today's Slovakia, ©ulekovo, where Josephus married Maria, and where they died later as well.
The surnames Hrachovič and Holcovsky are more, than rare in Slovakia, and in that ©ulekovo region I have found none of these surnames. Today about 2-3 persons live there with the name "Holčovsky".

My guess is that Andreas Hrachovič and Maria Holcovsky (especially because of the "C" instead of "Č") were from the Czech-Morvavian region.

Is there and chance anyone can help me where they might be from? Unfortunately the Mormon database on Czech marriages is very small...
Maria was born around 1771, Andreas was about the same age.

Thank you very much in advance!
Balázs
