Harry Chernicoff home town #courland #latvia

Mark Shernicoff

My grandfather Harry Chernicoff applied for citizenship in 1915 and on that form (see attached) listed his hometown as something like Windorv Russia.  I know that he was from somewhere around Courland/Kurland as he's buried in one of the Kurland plots at Mount Zion Cemetery in Maspeth Queens and is listed as a member of The Kurlander Young Men's Mutual Aid Society on Jewish Gen. Can anyone help me with the name of the town.
