If you look at his NY ship arrival on the Hamburg in 1904 it says he is from Kovno.  (He is Meier Edelson, glazier, age 18)
If you look at the Hamburg departure lists, he is Meier Edelson from Wilkomir. 
Kovno is both a city and a Gubernia.  Like Kansas City is in Kansas State.

I found my grandmother's brother's 1911 naturalization papers (online), and attached them. He put down that he was born in Wilkennie, Russia. I have never heard of it, and couldn't find it in a search. Any ideas? Thanks.
