I would guess Mogilev. If an English speaking clerk heard Mogilev,
Moliff is what he might write. Same if an English speaking kid heard
his grandmother say where she was born. (My 1st cousin said he heard
his father say he was born is Spittule, Poland-I searched for Spittule
for a long time before I overheard a person reading Polish to another
researcher in the library-Spittule means hospital. Great great uncle
Moses was probably born in a hospital in Poland, how unusual).

Good luck
