8. Wiązowna

This happened in the village of Wiązowna on the twenty-third day of January in the year one-thousand eight-hundred fifty-eight at the hour of two in the afternoon.  There appeared August Güttler, a carpenter, forty-five years of age, together with Franciszek Kulezycki, a wheel maker, thirty years of age, both residing in Wiąowna, and they stated that on the twentieth day of January of this same year, at the hour of ten in the morning, after receiving the sacred sacraments, Wojciech Gutowski, a shoemaker, died in Wiązowna, fifty seven years of age, son of unknown parents and husband of Anna née Jabłonowska, born here in Wiązowna.  After visual confirmation of the death of Wojciech whose bodily remains were buried in the Wiązowna cemetery, we signed this document after it had been read aloud to the declarants who do not know how to write.
[signed] The Reverend Józef Krause, Administrator of the Parish of Wiązowna

Wojciech Gutowski was my 2nd great grandfather.  Based on this record, he was born in about 1801.  Unfortunately, the records of the Wiązowna parish do not go back that far in time.  Even though this record states that Wojciech parents were unknown, Wojciech’s marriage record states that his parents were Józef Gutowski and Franciszka Zagańska.
