They are on the same page as the Frank FAFINSKI family who also settled in Dunkirk.They all came from "Grabow" W. Prussia according to the documents.
It has been found in other documents that the FAFINSKI's came from Grabowo.I'm sure they are the same town.
There are several families that emigrated from this town, according to this document, including Szalkowski's, Kosozynski, Papinski, Zurolaka, Gestwicki's and Schocki's (Szocki's).
