Klaus and Jerry,

Perhaps this is only a coincidence, but I have learned not to immediately 
toss out such occurences.

If the place can be determined to be Gucin, in Nasielsk or Nowy Dwor 
parish, there are lots of Grams and Hein families in that area.  Nasielsk 
is a daughter parish that formed when Nowy Dwor was split in the 1850s.

There are also two Wilhelmine Grams in Nasielsk or Nowy Dwor parish for 
whom I have more information.  One is my great-grandmother, and one appears 
to be her first cousin.  Both were born in Karolinow (right next to Gucin), 
and both were baptized within one half hour of each other in Nowy 
Dwor.    I was able to obtain a marriage certificate from the Polish 
archives for my Wilhelmina Grams for 1861 from Nasielsk parish.  My great 
great grandfather Peter Grams died in Gucin in 1856.
