Mosaki-Godacze – 17 May 
A child by the name of Mathias, one year old, died, son of the Nobles Paweł and Elżbieta Chotkowski, and was buried. 2.
Maciej Chodkowski was my first cousin 5X removed. The notation “2.” at the end of the record indicates that the family paid 2 złoty for the burial.
The record states that the child was 1 year old when he died, but I could not find a birth and baptismal record for this child. In fact, this was the second son that Paweł Chodkowski and Elżbieta Ostrowska named Maciej. The first was born on about 27 February 1788 and died three months later on 04 June 1788. The child named in the present death and burial record was born in about 1799, at which time the parents reused the name Maciej.
