Mosaki-Rukle – 07 October [1762]

An infant by the name of Franciszka, one year old, daughter of the Noble Adam Chodkowski died and was buried in a tomb in the portico of the church.  –   –   –   5 tynfs

Franciszka Chodkowska was my 3rd cousin 5X removed. Of significance is the fact that Franciszka was buried in a tomb in the portico of the church, rather than in the cemetery. A notation at the end of the burial record shows that Franciszka’s parents paid the sum of 5 tynfs for her burial. After Franciszka’s death, her parents named a second daughter Franciszka.
