I need help in identifying the Russian town in which my grandfather was born.
In his 1918 discharge papers >from the United States Army he list his
birthplace as a town in Russia. I cannot read the exact spelling but some of the
possibilities are Messity, Mesuty or Mesnty. I am sure of the Mes beginning and
ty ending. My grandfather was born in 1896. Does anybody have any idea what
the town or village might be? Thanks in advance.
