Michele,

How about this as a vague possibility?  I've seen names of towns even more distorted.

Lahoysk, Belarus
Alternate names: Lahoysk [Bel], Logoysk [Rus], Lahoisk [Yid], Łohojsk [Pol], Logoisk, Łahojsk Region: Minsk

A very quick look at https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Belarus/ finds virtually no records for this town.  There are several other 'Genners researching this town, and one is searching LEVINE.  Of course, that is an extremely common name, but you never know!

Regards,
