The people who were from Marawil/Marowil  - my maternal gfather August 
Klappstein b.2 May 1856 and my paternal gmother Karoline Kotke b. 18 
March 1873.  The village of Marywil located SE of Kutno may possibly be 
the village of their birth as other relatives were born in the general 
area - my maternal gmother Natalie Mueller was born in Turek, Kalisch 6 
July 1863 and my grand uncle Friedrich Sonnenburg was born in Lowitsch  
1874. I have no documentary source other than the EWZ Stammblatts to 
confirm their birthplace.
