Selo Rohy (1,105 population)and Selo Popovka (405 pop) are both located in Mankivskij raion (county) > Cherkaska oblast/region. What is odd is that they are appx 35 miles apart ???That quite a distance to go courting when you don't have a car.
At turn of century this was Uman uezd (county) > Kyivskaya gubernia/region.
Rohy (HORNS) is located in the very SE part of the raion. I will check other districts nearby that might have a Popovka that is closer.After all it was a very popular village name.
