Minikowo was one of the villages that early on had a Remus presence. Andreas Remus and Marianna Nowaska lived in Minikowo from around 1858 to 1874 and raised his family there. It is likely that Andreas was a son Andreas Remus and Marie Zaremba of Kesowo. Click here for this family.

Johan Remus and Anna Halweg of Okiersk also have descendents in this village; in particular, the Michael Kathke and Dorothea Elisabeth Remus family and their descendents.
