It happened in the ecclesiastical village of Szwelice on twenty-fifth day of October in the year one thousand eight hundred sixty-two at the hour of nine o’clock in the morning.  Ludwik Niedziałkowski, [one word?] presented himself, twenty-eight years of age, living in Pomaski, in the presence of Jan Pomaski, forty-four years of age, and Konstanty Grzybowski, thirty years of age, heirs to a part [of the village] living in Pomaski and he showed Us a child of the male sex, declaring that he was born in Pomaski yesterday at the hour of nine o’clock in the morning, born of his wife Józefa née Pomaska, twenty-three years of age. At Holy Baptism performed this day by the Pastor Ignace Kotakowski, the child was given the name Józef and the Godparents were the married couple Józef and Barbara Nossarzewski. This document was read aloud to the declarants and witnesses and signed by Us alone because the declarants and witnesses cannot write.

This is one of the records I found at the Family History Library while attending UPGS 2008.

Józef Niedziałkowski was born and died in the Congress Kingdom of Poland in 1862, just a few months before the January Uprising.
