Another record I found in the microfilms at my local Family History Center Saturday was the counterpoint to the one I showed yesterday – the death record of Marianna Niedziałkowska, daughter of my third great grandparents, Antoni Niedziałkowski and Karolina Milewska. Marianna died on 17 Aug 1848 in Godacze, Maków Powiat, Łomża Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland. She was buried on 18 Aug 1848 in the parish of Saint John the Baptist in Krasne.

Click on the image above to enlarge it. Click on the link for a PDF copy of the Death and Burial Record of Marianna Niedziałkowska. The record reads:
Godacze. It happened in the village of Krasne on the sixth / eighteenth day of August, one thousand eight-hundred forty-eight at the hour of six in the morning. Antoni Niedziałkowski presented himself, thirty-seven years of age, and Ignace Wilkowski forty years of age, both farmers residing in the village of Godacze, and stated that yesterday at the hour of twelve noon, Marianna Niedziałkowska, the daughter of the married couple Antoni and Karolina Niedziałkowski from Godacze, died at the age of one and one-half. After visual confirmation of the death of Niedziałkowska- This document was read aloud to the declarants, the first of the father to have died, and who are unable to write.
Reverend Józef Bońkowski, Pastor of the parish in Krasne
Tucked away in the last sentence is a phrase I’ve never seen before – a reference to the fact that Marianna was the first child of Antoni Niedziałkowski to have died.
