There is a town of Kujawa, but it was probably in Poland at the time.
Kujawa populated place 53°12' N 19°12' E E M U G Poland 99.8 miles NW of
Warszawa 52°15' N 21°0' E
Here is the town of Kowel, which was in Volhynia at the time, I believe.
Kowel, Kovel populated place 51°13' N 24°43' E E M U G Ukraine 258.6
miles WNW of Kyyiv 50°26' N 30°31' E
There is a Kujawy that is only 132.2 miles WNW of Kowel. From the maps I
can look at on the Internet, I can't tell if this would have been in Poland
or Volhynia at the time. I am sure that Jerry can tell us.
Kujawy populated place 51°55' N 21°51' E E M U G Poland 132.2 miles WNW of
51°13' N 24°43' E
Hope I have not muddied the waters.

I have looked through all my resources for Volhynia and cannot find a
Kuyavy is an alternate name for the town of Sosnowka but that was in
Galicia, not Volhynia.
It would be helpful to know the context of this place name. What is the
source? Does it come from a church record or from family lore? Is it
possible that the reference is to a time before the colonist arrived in
Volhynia such as to the Kujawian district of Poland?
