Hayu (Гаю) / Haju

A hamlet between the villages of Czeremosznia and Usznia. 
At the time of my ancestors' immigration to America, there were only a handful of families: Makarowsky, Bałuczyński, Grabowski.

Dirt road that once led to the hamlet Hayu (Gaju), where my great-grandfather Stefan Makarowsky was born.
