A typical marriage record may provide two locations related to the 
groom. One village is where he lives, the other his birthplace. The 
context of the record will tell which is meant, or if the information is 
on a table with other records, the headings at the top will indicate if 
his residence or birthplace is given.

The Volhynia gazetteer on the SGGEE website shows the following possibility:
Grabow (Grabow/Hrabiv), Rivne, Rivne, Ukraine
Rivne refers to the same city as "Rowno" according to other spellings 
and pronunciations.

The Russian Poland gazetteer shows at least half a dozen villages named 
Grabow or Grabowa.
