I can't help with family names but will have a go at some of the 
places.  At the moment I am assuming these are from family lore.  If 
they come from documents, it may help to know what type of documents they are.

Smolee is probably Smolewo.  There are Smolewo Wies and Smolewo 
Parcele about 16 km SE of Paproc Duza.

Szimall may be a different spelling for Smolewo.  There is Szmulowka 
on the north side of the Bug River roughly 18 km west of Smolewo but 
I am less inclined to think that is correct.

Grzymain is probably Grzymaly about 8 km NNE of Paproc Duza.

I can't find a good match for Grzcinski.  There is 
Przezdziecko-Grzymki about 8 km E of Paproc Duza but that guess is a 
bit of a stretch for me.

Ostrowski - There are numerous Ostrow and variants throughout Poland 
though none with that specific spelling.  If it is in context with 
all the other places, my best guess is that it refers to the large 
town of Ostrow Mazowiecka which is 18 km SW of Paproc Duze.
