Anyone heard of the town of Sapatkin? #general

Saul Marks <saulmarks@...>

Dear All,

I was doing some research into the FREEMAN family of Manchester (UK) & wa
able to get my hands on naturalisation papers for the family patriarch & his
son. They said that both were born in a place called Sapatkin, in Russia.
Obviously, the "Russia" part must be taken with a pinch of salt, & family
legend has it that the family were originally named FRUCHTENBAUM & were >from
Poland. The "kin" suffix of Sapatkin feels more Russian-Russian than
Polish-Russian though. The ShtetlSeeker doesn't come up with anything really
definitive, so I was wondering if anyone out there has heard of it?

Many thanks,
