I won't respond to the relationship as that takes some work on the part of 
you and the original poster to resolve.

Kr. = Kreis, a German equivalent to something like a county.

There are actually 2 Sergejewka in the vicinity of Emiltschen though I 
don't know which Kreis either was in.  The first and most likely one is 
about 34 km N of Nowograd-Wolhynski and 18 km W of Emiltschen.  The other 
is 10 km NE of Nowograd-Wolhynski and 27 km SSW of Emiltschen.

Your Scheresowka is about 12 km NNW of Nowograd-Wolhynski and 26 km SW of 

Certainly these are all close enough together to consider a probable 
relationship but Meier is quite a common surname so you will have to 
investigate specifics further.
