Hi Michele,

I've had good luck with small village IDs from the Lida Group on FB (https://www.facebook.com/groups/JewishLidaDistrictinVilnaGuberniya/). There are some folks in the group who are extremely familiar with the area.

More generally, it could be that the 'village' you are looking for was what we might call an agricultural estate where Jews lived as laborers (both agricultural and trade labor). I have such a location in my tree as well, that doesn't appear on maps but was found by a helpful member of the Lida group.
