Could the place name  you site as Helendry Schelsuzkie bei Gretpuin (now
possibly Gostynin)  be  HOLENDRY SIERAKOWICKIE ? (the last C is pronounced
like an S.  It is near Gostynin.


My gt.gt grandfather Daniel Baier was born there in 1839.  He married
Karoline Schmidt in Gostynin, later moved to Borowka then Friedrichsdorf or
Solomka in Wolhynian. He went Benton Harbor, MI in 1903 and died there in
1935 (yes! 95 years old).
