I certainly appreciate the input for Richard and you.

Following up on the "Baptist" connection, I was able to find additional
support for the location(s) you identify.

A site captioned "In the midst of Wolves" includes a listing of Babtist
community locations in Rozyszcze including "Scheple".

Similarly, a paper by Donald Miller entitled THE SUFFERINGS AND TRIUMPHS
OF THE GERMAN BAPTISTS IN VOLHYNIA, RUSSIA (1863-1943)contains a reference
to thirty Evangelical Congregations in Lutzk parish around 1900; one was
"Ludwischin+ (near Schepel or Szepel)".

I now feel comfortable with the location of the European emigration - thanks
to all for your help.

Familiesfrom Scheple


Dick has given good info about your surnames.  I will try to help 
with the place names.

I have not been able to find your Schlepe / Schelpel.  However, in 
our database, we have a known German settlement spelled variously as 
Schoepel / Scheppel / Szepel / Szepec and I think that is probably 
the place you are looking for.  It is located about 15 km WNW of Luck 
and would have been in the Rozyszcze parish (about the same distance 
SW of that town).

Ludwischin / Ludwiszyn is located about 2 km due south of Scheppel so 
that seems to settle the fact that both are the correct locations you 
are looking for.
