There is a Zvia Moskowitz, b. 1859 Romania, d. 1926 New York City.

I have not been able to find any further info on her. Her death cert lists no husband's name.  It does list one son named Joe (probably the informant.)

If you can get a photo of her tombstone from Baron Hirsch Cemetery than it may contain the name of her husband.
Baron Hirsch Cemetery charge $16. for a photo.
If you post a request for a photo on JewishGen than someone may volunteer to take a photo for you.

Good luck in your search,

Sherri Bobish
