I have found 8 Iwanowice (pronounced very similar to Ivanowich) in modern 
Poland.  All are in the southern parts of that country which would not have 
been East Prussia.  However, part of East Prussia is now in Russia so that 
may be the location.  I don't have adequate resources to search in that 
area.  You may have to get more specific information to find the correct place.
