Ossoweg is a village just to the east ofSchlachta. It seems to be another timber industry village with sandy soil and a variety of houses; probably now many of the people in Ossoweg work in Schlachta. In 1905 its population was 409 people. Here is a picture of a playground showing the conditon of the soil and then a view of the main street:
My interest in this village is that the Remus family ofSchlachta later also resided in this village.
Here is a map of Ossoweg and Schlachta:
