Hello Mark,
Klawittersdorf *does* still exist. Its Polish name is *Głowaczewo* and 
it is situated in a river bend of the Piława. On the air view of 
http://maps.geoportal.gov.pl (copy the Polish village name to include 
the ł into the search box) you can detect some houses, garden beds, a 
pisciculture and even a church at N 53°18'51.11" N; E 16°36'17.12". A 
photograph of the church (apparently built after 1900) is at 

According to the Prussian Landesaufnahme (census) of 1772 / 73, *A. 
ZELLMER* was Krüger (innkeeper) in Klawittersdorf. His household 
included 1 man, 1 woman, 3 daughters younger than 9 years, 1 farm 
servant (boy), 1 farm servant (girl), altogether 7 souls, 2 horses, 4 
oxes, 3 cows, 5 young stock, 19 sheep, 7 pigs and 1 Hufe (= 30 Morgen = 
75.000 sqare meters of farm land).
