I had a cousin who came to the US from Augustow, Suwalki gubernia, Russia, like the rest of the family. I knew a lot of the family as many kept in touch after they came to the US.
Imagine my surprise when I got his naturalization papers. He was born in Marseilles, now France.
Apparently they went to Marseilles during the rebellion/famine/cholera epidemic of the 1860s, then went back to Augustow.
So anywhere is possible, as my family in that time frame was from Augustow District, Kingdom of Poland.
"The family in that time frame was in the przytzk, gmina stara
blotnica, glowaczow area north of radom, poland."
