I think Duane that your comment must be time dependent.  I have a 
list of Stations of Baptist Churches in Volhynia and they include at 
least 37 villages / towns including Rowno itself, Kostopol, Korist, 
and others, all in the Rowno region.  The full list also includes 
Baptist Stations in the Rozyszcze region.

I have no information about the time frame for their existence there 
nor do I know if these were permanent or temporary situations.  But 
they did exist.

It is also possible of course that individual Baptist families 
resided in predominantly Lutheran villages and they would not 
necessarily register their events at the Lutheran Church.  This 
situation would be different in Russian Poland where registration at 
a local church was mandatory.
