Corcisco, Latvia? #latvia

Dear Latvia SIG,

Does anyone know the current name of the town/village of Corcisco, Latvia?

The name of the village comes >from a 1980 taped interview with Beila
FEIGELSON (daughter-in-law of my cousin, Chana GRUSIN FEIGELSON). Beila was
born in Dankere (Glazmanka, now Gostini) in 1905. When she was about 10
years old, she and her family ran away >from Russian troops who invaded
Dankere and took shelter for a few months in Corcisco. They first went to
Varklani, Latvia, and then got on a train to Corcisco. Eventually they
returned to Dankere.

I have tried the shtetl finder, mapquest, WOWW, and WOWW companion, but
haven't been able to find Corcisco. Any ideas?
