Smorgorzewiec is located roughly 17 km ESE of Torun / Thorn (N52/57 
E18/49) and would have been in the Lipno Parish of Russian Poland.


I cannot find such a place but there is Kwirynowo only 7 km SE of 
Smorgozewiec so there is a good chance that it is the right place.

I don't know why this Kreis conflict exists but there appears to be 
only on Milascew / Milaszew located about 8 km E of Kolki and it is 
within range of both Silno and Luck as far as being in either district.
