Piasutno 52

This happened in the village of Mały Płock on the fourteenth day of November in the year one-thousand eight-hundred forty-five at the hour of twelve noon.
We make it known that in the presence of witnesses Szymon Dymek, age thirty, and Mikołaj Dymek, age forty, both peasant farmers residing in Piasutno, on this day, with a blessing imparted by Us, a religious marriage was contracted between the young man Jakób Dymek, residing until now with his father in Piasutno, born there of the married couple the deceased Antoni and still living Maryanna née Gorzka Dymek, peasants residing in Piasutno, nineteen years and four months of age, and the young girl, Franciszka Alicka, daughter of the married couple the Mateusz and Katarzyna née Grabowska Alicka, peasants residing in Niksowizna, having completed sixteen years of age, born in Niksowizna and residing until now with her parents.  This wedding was preceded by three readings of the banns on the thirty-first day of October, the seventh day and today of this same month and year in the parish of Mały Płock, also with the oral consent of those present for the marriage record and of the father on the side of the groom and the parents on the side of the bride. No impediment to the marriage arose. The newlyweds stated that they had made no prenuptial agreement. This document was read aloud to the declarants and witnesses all of whom do not know how to write.
 The Reverend Juliusz Kulisz, Pastor of Mały Płock

Oddly enough, this record states that Jakób Dymek’s father was dead, but also states that Jakób was living until now with his father and that the groom’s father gave consent for the marriage.  Something is not quite correct.

    I am quite excited by this website. I’ve been doing my family genealogy for over 20 years and haven’t found anything of its kind. My birth name is Sara Jeanne Demick, my last name changed from its original spelling, Dymek, sometime around 1900 when my Polish ancestors names were being Americanized as the children entered school. My family’s presence begins in the early 1900s with Stephen, Alexander and Anthony, brothers. When looking through the death records for one of these boys, Jacob was listed as the father. No information for Jacob was listed, there wasn’t even his last name. Could the Jakob here be the father of these 3 brothers? The timing is right. Most of my family settled in western Massachusetts. Some drifted into eastern NY.
