This happened in the village of Mały Płock on the twenty-seventh day of July / eighth day of August in the year one-thousand eight-hundred fifty-eight at the hour of two in the afternoon. There appeared Franciszek Dymek, a peasant farmer residing in Piasutno, twenty-five years of age, in the presence of Stanisław Plona, forty years of age, together with Stanisław Cieślik, thirty years of age, both farmers from Piasutno, and he showed Us a child of the female sex, stating that this child was born in Piasutno yesterday at the hour of eight in the morning of his wife Ewa née Szumowska, twenty-three years of age. To this child at Holy Baptism performed by the Reverend Łuniewski, on this day was given the name Justyna and her Godparents were the afore-mentioned Stanisław Plona and Katarzyna [Koldys?]. This document was read aloud to the illiterate declarant father and witnesses and was signed by Us.
[signed] The Reverend Franciszek Sakowicz, Pastor of Mały Płock
It seems that the Dymeks did not have future genealogists in mind when two men named Franciszek Dymek, both with wives whose surname was Szymowska, both named their daughters born in the year 1858 with the same name – Justyna.
