Perhaps the i at the end is a quirk of the handwriting or it could be the 
way in which a c with an apostrophe over it was transliterated.

I think the place you are looking for is Gac (with apostrophe over the c) 
which is located about 18 km SSE of Zakrzyn, on the south side of the 
Swedrnia River.  Today it is known as Gac Kaliska.

Use http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm and search for the 
town of Moskurnia in Poland.

Zoom in one level and you will see Gac Kaliska a short distance to the west.
