17. Mosaki-Rukle – 21 March 1774
I who am named above [Kazimierz Grabowski] baptized an infant with the names Józef and Stanisław, son of the lawfully wedded couple, the Noble Adam and Julianna Chotkowski. The Godparents were the Reverend Józef Cieszewski, Canon Regular of the Lateran, and the Noble Elizabeth Józefata Ostaszewska, widow.
Józef Stanisław Chodkowski was my 3rd cousin 5X removed. As was typical for the children in this family, the Godfather was a priest.
