I was wondering if anyone knows much about the town of Witkowo, which isSaul,
There are several towns named or renamed Witkowo in western part of Poland.
If you are certain that 'your' Witkowo is near Szczecin (ex Stettin), then
this particular Witkowo was known in Prussia as Wittchow bei Stargard (3,5
miles distance >from Stargard Szczecinski).
Records were most probably deposited in Stargard.
There is fair amount of data available about the region in English. One of
the general sources is an article in Wikipedia
BTW, there is town Dobrzany near Stargard Szczecinski, and I am wondering
if the researched by you Dobrzynski is not associated with this particular
place, although it was also known in the past as Jakobshagen.
