Thoms/Thomas in Mecklenburg (specifically Grussow?)

Classification: Query
Hi! I'm trying to connect my family that Emigrated to the US from Mecklenburg in the 1850's. I'm so excited that I *may* have found them (stress may because I am just starting and don't know yet).

I have a few questions for anyone who either knows this area or has done research in this area:

I have found baptism records and marriage records for possible ancestors. Most of the baptism records have this:

grüssow (ag. malchow)- can someone explain what the ag. is standing for?

Also does anyone know what a "wood warren" is? One of my possible ancestors was listed as "dead, wood warren from Strietfeld."

if you have looked at birth/baptism records and marriage records, can you figure out what church these events took place at?


Okay, last question: Bedienter- servant? (per google translate), but Statthalter??? Can someone tell me what that means if you speak/understand German. Google is saying governor?

Thank you so much for any and all help!
