[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Fw: Village of Damerhorst

Is this Freyenstein still associated with Pommern / Pomerania? Using Shtetlseeker, I found a Freyenstein in Germany, about 69 mi. northwest of Berlin. However, this would not have been in Pomerania. I did also search for Damerhorst in case they were close to each other but came up blank with that.
I can't explain why the husband would be entered on the list separately from the rest of the family unless it is just a fluke that somebody else with the same name was traveling on the same ship without there being a relationship. That would certainly also explain the different locations of origin.
