Earlier in the year 1867, Jan Danko’s wife Małgorzata and son Franciszek died. With this marriage, Jan wasted no time finding a new wife to take care of his house and family. This document provides two clues to the origin of this family: Jan was born in Stryjów (Tarnogóra Parish) and his parents resided in Oleśniki (Fajsławice Parish). Both of these places are just to the south of Piaski. The Tarnogóra metrical records from 1810-1910 and the Fajsławice metrical records from 1825-1910 have been microfilmed by the Family History Library.
