Caroline, Do you have any more information?  Is this the right one:

Petro Kowal, arrived at New York in 1912, born Jan 1895 in Vulka, Austria (Ruthenia). Another record shows that he was a carpenter, born in Wulka, Mazouiecka, Galicia, Austria, of the Ukrainian race..  He also went by the name Harsey Wydnyk. He had children Leon (born out of wedlock) and Stephen (son of previous marriage, whereabouts unknown). First wife was Anna, marriage annulled in 1924 in NY. Second wife was Maria, married 1927 in NJ.  I also find a Petro Kowal arriving in 1913 arriving at Quebec and crossing into the USA.  He was born about 1894 and was Ruthenian.  It is possible that they are the same person.

No, my grandfather didn't marry until 1918 in the U.S.
Caroline, Is Petro Kowal, Kowal-33, the correct person? (If not, can you give more information, such as: Where did he live in the US? What was the name of his wife? When and where did he die? Where did his wife die?  What were the names of their children? That info will make it possible to narrow things down.)
