Finally found her, my great-great grandmother, using one of the quirky spellings of the family surname, Schanofski.

Schenovsky? No.
Sarnowska. No.
Scharnowski. No.
Scharnofske. Maybe.
Schanofski! Yes!

Marie Friederike Schanofski was born to Johann Schanofski and Marie Mesick on July 20, 1826. Three days later, she was baptized, on July 23, 1826 in Damerkow, Butow, Pomerania, Prussia, Germany, also probably the place of her birth.

It’s only a short distance from Borntuchen, which is turning out to be a hotbed of familial connections. It’s the birthplace of her son-in-law Albert Fromke, my great grandfather.

I’ve uploaded a digital copy of the complete page scan from microfilm.
