found using jewishgen gazetteer. I then found a page of the publiched artile online, which mentioned the town they were from in Lithuanie, not in Poland. i googled it which brought me to back to jewishgen. that town is Butrimonys, Lithuania https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/Community.php?usbgn=-2613523 which is not far from Altulys Lithuania, which is near Liepakojai.
