Here is a link to the website I have found to be the best for the Graudenz area, and indeed there are 3 Puch's on this site, here is the link.
I noticed there are also 3 with the spelling Pusch. Could be related with changed spelling - pretty common.
I'm actually surprised there are not more genealogical resources for West Prussia out there.

> Hello All,
> My question is in regards to Vistula Germans. I have seen the Breyer Map and an explanation that it does not show all the German settlements. So then, were there German settlements in the Graudenz/ Marienwerder area of West/East Prussia? The border with Congress Poland was further south near Torun correct?
> I am researching Ferdinand Puch born in 1838 in Ostrowite, West Prussia which is on the west side of the Vistula River, north of Gross NeBrau, East Prussia (now Nebrowo Wielke, Poland). Ferdinand married Catherine Brosowsky in 1864 in Gross NeBrau. I have seen LDS records for the area and am waiting for more to come in to search. The name Puch seems to be unique in this area is the name German or were they possibly Poles?
