The Rumunki you found is probably the correct one, though it is still a 
guess.  There are several other Rumunki to the west and SW of Sierpc but 
they have different adjectives associated with their names. 

My modern map shows the one you found as Rumunki Str. Wies (Rumunki Old 
Village) but also Rumunki Chwaly (Rumunki by Chwaly).
