Slonsk (today known as Slonsk Dolny) is located just north of Ciechocinek 
on the Wisla River at about N52/54 E18/47.  Woluszewo is a short distance 
west at N52/54 E18/45.

I cannot find any Olszewo in the immediate vicinity - not on modern maps 
nor on my 1803 Gilley map.  There is Sluzewo not too far away at N52/52 E18/41.

What is your source for the place name and why do you think it is in this area?
