You'll have to look at the record. The indexers often just use the index on the film for the parish. Secymin is the parish, like Lublin is the parish for that region. It is a great deal of work to look at every record and figure out the spellings for the names, dates and villages. At least this much is available to provide clues.

And don't take the information that Ludwig or his descendants provided as wholly accurate. I've seen too much information that changes along the years because people didn't carry documents with them; they relied on memory which can be tricky.

Thanks for your hints.
is there a birth place given for the one born in  1864?
Nowiny means News. It could well be that Nowiny could be used  as 
"Neustadt" in German. Then this most likely the right place and the right  
Do you know what Secymin means? I did not find anything in  google 
translator from  Polish or Russian.

I really do not know much about the  Secymin records.
But the volunteer who idexed these  records did include names of parens and 
birth place.  Unfortunately this  added information does not show on the 
Parish Records Index database,  yet.
The Ludwig born in 1864 appears to be an  illegimate birth.  
The one born in 1866 has birth place as  Nowiny.  This 'may' be another 
name for Neustadt.

I do not see a marriage about 1890 for  this couple in the Secymin or 
Wyzogrod indexes.
