The Death and Burial of Antonina Bórska – 1847

On 18 Nov 1847, Antonina Bórska, daughter of Stefan Bórski and Marianna Zawadzka, died in Borze-marcisze, okręg ciechanowski, gubernia płocka, Congress Kingdom of Poland. Her death was recorded in the parish of Gzy, okręg ciechanowski, gubernia płocka, Congress Kingdom of Poland on 20 Nov 1847. Antonina appears to have been my first cousin, five times removed.

29. Borze-marcisze

It happened in the village of Gzy on the eighth/twentieth day of November in the year one-thousand eight-hundred forty-seven at the hour of eleven before noon. There appeared Antoni Chotkowski, age forty-two, and Wojciech Smolenski age forty-six, both farmers residing in Borze-marcisze, and stating that two days ago at the hour of six in the evening, Antonina Bórska died, an unmarried woman, residing with her sister, fifty-seven years of age, daughter of the deceased married couple Stefan and Marianna Bórski. After visual evidence of the death of Antonina Bórska, this document was read aloud to the declarants and by Us alone signed because the declarants do not know how to write.
Reverend Piotr Bączkowski, Administrator of Gzy

This record spells the family surname as Bórski, rather than Borski or Burski as I’ve seen in many other records.
