Zelig Zaretsky - Laketian or Taketain

I am looking for information on a Zelig Zaretsky, my grandfather who was born in Russian in a Village listed as Laketian or Taketian (can't make out the handwriting) in January 1880. He was at one time in the Czar or Czarina's army and came to the U.S. in the early 1900's. His mother's maiden name appears to be Shirley Garbus and his father was Jospeh Zaretsky. Any information on the town/village or how to find old villages that may no longer exist. I think it was near Minsk or Pinsk???

Thanks for any help.
