Sompolno is a well known German settlement village in Russian Poland 
located at about N52/23 E18/30.

There are several possibities for Walentynow or similar places in Russian 
Poland but I don't see any in the Sompolno region.  Perhaps they moved 
there for a few years before moving further south to Bessarabia.    One 
known to be a German settlement is located north of Tomaszow Mazowiecka at 
about N51/40 E20/04 but it could also have been one of the others.

I have not been able to find any Domeroff or variant anywhere in 
Poland.  It might be a misspelling of Dombrowka but there are too many 
possibilities for such a place name to hazard a guess at which it might be.
