the closest name i could find is bajorva'ga's in saros megye,
which is bajerovce in present-day slovakia.
the jewshgen gazetteer does not list it as having a jewish community,
but there are 5 smaller communities within a 10-mile radius.

In the 1867 census, my great-grandfather is listed as having been
born in Bajovagar or Bajovagas in 1841. The handwriting on the census
record makes it difficult to distinguish the last letter of the
location.
In a house sale contract dated 1844, my great-great-grandfather is
shown as living in Berwager. I assume these are the same place and
that Berwager is the German equivalent of Bajovagar/s.
Any suggestions as to its present day location? It's probably in
Northern Slovakia, near Brezovice, but I can't find anything close to
either spelling.
