The Polish Village of Radzieje

In the marriage record of Józef Chodkowski and Marianna Ludwika Trętowska, one of the witnesses, Ludwik Sosnowski, was from the village of Radzieje Wity.  I have not found this village on a map, modern or historical, but the village appears in the Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego i Innych Krajów Słowiańskich (Geographical Dictionary of the Kingdom of Poland and other Slavonic Countries).
