There are several Wojciechowo with German residents in Russian Poland but 
only one Laszewo so that helps to pin it down.  It would appear that 
Weizekow is the inaccurate spelling variant for Wojciechowo.

Both are in a somewhat isolated area of German settlement, about 35 km NW 
of Plonsk or 25 km due east of Sierpc or 35 km SW of Mlawa.  The 2 villages 
are less than 3 km apart.  Because these villages are centrally located 
between those 3 Lutheran parish centres, I cannot advise which one they 
were part of.
