After finding the Birth and Baptismal Record for Stanisław Markiewicz, I searched for the records of other children born of the same parents. I found one fairly quickly – Antoni Markiewicz.
Antoni Markiewicz, son of Tomasz Markiewicz and Franciszka Piontkowa, was born on 03 January 1895 in Braciejowice, Nowo Aleksandryja Powiat, Lublin Gubernia, Vistula Land, Russian Empire. He was baptized on 06 January 1895 in the parish church in Piotrawin, Nowo Aleksandryja Powiat, Lublin Gubernia, Vistula Land, Russian Empire.

2. Braciejowice – Markiewicz Antoni
This happened in the village of Piotrawin on the 25th day of December / 6th day of January 1894/5 at one in the afternoon. Tomasz Markiewicz appeared in person, age 37, the owner of a house in the village of Braciejowice, in the presence of Stanisław Kań from the village of Piotrawin, age 40, and Jakub Pastwaski, from the village of Braciejowice, age 41, the owner of a house – and he presented to us a child of the male sex, stating that it was born in the village of Braciejowice on the 23rd of December / 3rd of January of this year, at 4 o’clock after midnight of his lawful wife Franciszka nee Piontkowa, age 32. To this child at Holy Baptism performed on this date was given the name of Antoni, and his godparents were the above-mentioned Stanisław Kań and Leokadia Barfiska. This document was read to the declarant father and to the witnesses, all of whom are illiterate, and signed by us.
Rev. C. Trembiński, pastor of the Piotrawin Parish, keeper of the documents of the civil state
The Birth and Baptismal Record shows that Antoni was born at 4 AM on January 6, 1895 in Braciejowice, baptized at 1 PM on January 3, 1895 in Piotrawin, his father was Tomasz Markiewicz, his mother was Franciszka Piontkowa, his godparents were Stanisław Kań and Leokadia Barfiska, and he was baptized by the Rev. C. Trembiński.
As with the Birth and Baptismal Record for Stanisław Markiewicz, I had a little trouble with the surnames – Kań, Pastwaski, and Barfiska. Other than those names, I’m very happy with this translation.
Note that when Stanisław was born two years earlier, Tomasz was 35. In this record Tomasz is 37. Thus, Tomasz’ age is consistent between the two documents. Tomasz was therefore born in about 1857-1858.
When Stanisław was born, Franciszka was 28. In this record she is 32, having aged four years in the space of only two years. Still, having a narrow range for Franciszka’s year of birth will be helpful in finding other records about her. Thus, Franciszka was born in about 1862-1865.
