My suggestion is that you use http://www.hometownlocator.com/ putting in
Mount Kivak New York into the city state search. It will come up with
unknown and a suggestion to search a list of populated places. The closest
one would be Mount Kisco in Westchester county. Alternatively you can click
on New York first and then search for populated places starting with M (or
P). Peekskill is a town in Westchester county, so I would think that
someone misread the handwriting for Mount Kisco.

New York in the 1880's. On his marriage certificate, dated 1896, it says he
lived in "Mount Kivak, New York."
