Ron, My grandfather was born in Nekla Hauland in 1876. Haulands,
(or haylands?) were plots of land settled by german farmers invited to
Prussia after the
partition of Poland about 1793, I believe. The village was mostly
Evangelical Lutheran.

My ancestors also lived in nearby Briesen, Wreschen, Schwersenz,
Pudewitz etc., and were named
ARNDT, BLUMKE, DOEDE, HERZBERG, KUHN, PINNO, SCHULZ, SCHMIDT, STREICH,
STROCH, WIEDIGER
