Józefata Anna Chodkowska, daughter of Adam Chodkowski and Julianna Bieńkowska, was born on about 14 March 1763 in Mosaki-Rukle, Ciechanów Land, Mazovian Voivodeship, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. She was baptized in the parish church in Krasne, Ciechanów Land, Mazovian Voivodeship, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth on 14 March 1763.

17 Mosaki-Rukle – 14 March 
I, Stefan Mikowski, Canon Regular of the Lateran, pastor of Krasne, baptized an infant with the name Józefata Anna, [daughter of] the legally married couple, the Noble Adam Chodkowski and Julianna Bieńkowska. The Godparents in the Sacred Font were the Noble Antoni Mosakowski and [six words?].
Józefata Anna Chodkowska was my 3rd cousin 5X removed.
This record was difficult to read, especially the last part of the record that names the second Godparent. The name appears to include the words “Adalb Thoma Jacob” but also includes other words as well. I was able to find only one other record written by this priest, and so wasn’t able to compare the style of handwriting and the particular words used by this priest.
