I would suggest that Piotskow is a misreading of Piotrkow. In Piotrkow
Trybunalski, located at the coordinates 5124N 1941E, there was a Lutheran
parish during the years 1796-1806 and 1827-1945. The German name of this
town is Petrikau.
I could not find any Nicolaipol, but there is a village called Mikolajow
some 21 miles NNE of Piotrkow. The German name Nicolai/Nikolai is Mikolaj in
Polish, so perhaps this is the village of your ancestors?
Hope this helps.
