The spelling would appear to be a combination of German and Polish, 
which is odd, to say the least.

I looked at Geoportal


and there are are only a relatively few places that begin with the 
letters Szcz.

Of that number, the following are relatively close to Rypin, but my 
command of Polish is insufficient to guess which one is the correct 
one.   You will get a clue to which one by looking at the names of the 
villages where the witnesses lived.



Szczutowo (one north of Rypin, and one west of Rypin)

You can see where each village is located by opening the web page, then 
zooming into the Rypin area, searching for Szcz, and then hovering over 
the search results.   Ignore the blue and green results, as those are 
rivers and other natural features.

It must be close to Rypin but I've not been able to find the place.  It is very clearly written 3 times in the record so the spelling is accurate although sometimes the Pastors do misspell words.  I would need its current Polish name.  Anyone able to find this place for me?
