My 4th great-grandmother Dorota Frank, nee Kutzner died in 1872 in Jesionna, Lask at the age of 75. Her death record is to be found here: http://metryki.genealodzy.pl/metryka.php?ar=3&zs=1553d&sy=1872&kt=3&plik=047-050.jpg  - record No. 48. 

It says that she was born in the village Шеппель in Prussia, which would be 'Scheppel' if transliterated. But I have no idea where this village could have been situated. I have found only "Scheppel / Dorf auf dem Westerwald im Amt Siegen" in "Wetterauischer Geographus:....." by Johann Hermann Dielhelm, but this seams to be not the right place as it is far from Prussia. Besides that - I cannot find any other source (e. g. old maps) indicating that this village even existed or where it was.

I'd be grateful for any suggestion that could help me to find out where the Kutzner family came from.

Best regards


Tallinn, Estonia
