Klonowo 88

     This happened in Pałuki on the first / thirteenth day of December in the year one-thousand eight-hundred fifty-one at the hour of three in the afternoon.  There appeared Jakub Milewski, thirty-four years of age, and Mikołaj Chodkowski, fifty-two years of age, owners of parts [of the village] and residing in Klonowo, and they stated that in this village on the day before yesterday at the hour of seven at night, [Wincenty Józef] Milewski died, four years old, born in Klonowo son of Jakub and Franciszka née Suwińska.  After visual confirmation of the death of Wincenty, this document was read aloud to the declarants and because they do not know how to write, was signed by Us alone.
 [signed] The Reverend Ksawery Nałęcz, Pastor of Pałuki

Józef Milewski was the nephew of the husband of my 2nd cousin 4X removed, Marianna Chodkowska. Although the clerk stated that this was the death record of Wincenty, this record must have recorded the death of Józef Milewski, not Wincenty Milewski.  Wincenty died on 15 Jan 1853. The only child of Jakub Milewska and Franciszka Suwińska who was the correct age at the time of this death was Józef.
