17. Mosaki-Rukle – 05 May 1776
I, Jan Zebrowski, Canon Regular of the Lateran and vicar of Krasne, baptized a female child with the names Domicella and Marianna, born of the lawfully wedded couple, the Nobles Adam and Julianna née Bieńkowska Chodkowski, the parents of the daughter. The Godparents in the Sacred Font were the greatly distinguished [one word?] Reverend Michał Romacki, Canon Regular of the Lateran, Prior of the Convent [one word?], prelate of the ecclesiastical college of Krasne, and the Honorable Martianna Bieńkowska. Standing by were the Honorable Józef [Oszemberk?] and Józefata [Oszemberkowa?].
Domicella Marianna Chodkowska was my 3rd cousin 5X removed. As was typical for the children in this family, the Godfather was a priest with significant status in the community. In addition, two magnates apparently witnessed the baptism.
