It might be difficult to find the right location without some connecting 
district name.  I find no suitable alternatives in the Volhynia region.

There is a Marywil in Russian Poland known to have had German settlers. 
Also found a Morawin in Russian Poland in a region where Germans settled 
though the specific town is not on our list.

Perhaps if you post the names of the people that were supposed to be there, 
we can use other resources to see if there are any connections.
