The map you are trying to use is too large a scale to find small places.  The best resource for your search is http://www.kartenmeister.com .  This is not a map but it will provide map coordinates so that you can find the place on modern maps or perhaps those at http://english.mapywig.org/news.php 

You do have to use an exact spelling for that resource so hope that the ones you have are good.  If not, try entering a few starting letters first and then browse through the list that comes up to see if you can find a reasonable match.
