The places on my maps are villages known to have had German settlers in 
them.  There is no way to distinguish if the numbers were predominant 
enough to classify it as a German settlement.

I have no record of when Germans first settled there.  The village still 
appears on modern road maps.

There are 3 reasons why Johann may have used Radom as a reference in 
reporting his residence.
- He lived in a village that was closer than his brother.
- He was referring to the province of Radom rather than the city.
- He was referring to the Lutheran parish of Radom rather than the city.
