I stopped by my local Family History Center this evening and further examined the microfilms for the parish of Krasne. I found the birth and baptismal record of Teodor Niedziałkowski who was apparently another son of my third great grandparents, Antoni Niedziałkowski and Karolina Milewska. Teodor was born on 15 Dec 1844 in Mosaki Godacze, Maków Powiat, Łomża Gubernia, Congress Kingdom of Poland. He was baptized the same day 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 Birth and Baptismal record of Teodor Niedziałkowski. The record reads:
Mosaki Godacze. It happened in the village of Krasne on the third / fifteenth day of December, one thousand eight-hundred forty-four at the hour of three in the afternoon. Antoni Niedziałkowski presented himself, owner of a part [of the village] thirty-three years of age, residing in the village of Godacze, forty years of age, along with Józef Łyszkowski, fifty years of age, both owners of a part [of the village] residing in the village of Mosaki Godacze, and he showed us a child of the male sex, born in Godacze today at the hour of four in the morning by his wife Karolina née Wrobilewska thirty years of age. At Holy Baptism performed this day, this child was given the name Teodor, and his Godparents were Antoni Chełchowski and Łucja, his wife. This document was read aloud to the declarants and witnesses who are unable to write.
Reverend Piotr Baczkowski [?] the parish of Krasne
There is one discrepancy in this record. Antoni Niedziałkowski’s wife was Karolina Milewska, not Karolina Wroblewska as stated in this record. Indications that this is the correct couple include the fact that I have found no other record of an Antoni Niedziałkowski married to a Karolina Wrobilewska, the location is correct, the ages of the parents are correct, and the occupation of the father is correct.
Furthermore, children were born to Antoni Niedziałkowski and Karolina Milewska approximately every two years after their marriage in 1831 until the last child was born in 1849 with one exception. There is a gap of four and a half years between 1942 and 1947. The birth of Teodor in December 1944 fills this gap nicely.
