Dick is correct.  Pamiatka is about 10 km NE of Sompolno, roughly 13 
km ESE of Mostki Warzymowskie.  Both appear on this map 
but the latter only shows as Mostki.

Zifeld is about 31 km WNW of Luck or 11 km NW of Torczyn.  It is not 
on this map 
but would have been a short distance east of Zubilno near the bottom 
and left edge.

Not sure of your source for Kissilinka as it does not appear on my 
lists.  There is a Kisielen about 6 km NW of Zifeld on this map 
but I have no idea if it is the correct place.

There is a Cekow in Russian Poland, about 2o km NE of the city of 
Kalisz but not sure if this is your Cecow.  I have not been able to 
find a place named Sabilno.  More research will be needed.

Most people would make their way by horse and wagon to the nearest 
rail line and thus to the port.  If Cekow is correct, then the 
connection may have been at the city of Posen.
