This happened in the [town?] of Piaski wielkie on the seventh (nineteenth) of August in the year one-thousand eight-hundred seventy at the hour of two I the afternoon. There appeared Wojciech [Kacpersia?], thirty years of age, and Franciszek [Gaika?], forty years of age, laborers from the village of Kębłów, and he stated that on the fourth (sixteenth) day of August in the same year, at the hour of eight in the afternoon, Tekla Dańko, the one-year-old daughter of Jan Dańko, laborer in Kębłów and his wife Salomea née Ciesielka, died in the village of Kębłów, having been born in the village of Łańcuchów, residing in the village of Kębłów after birth. After eyewitness testimony on the death of Tekla Dańko, this document was read aloud to those present who were illiterate, and was signed only by Us.

I had not previously found a birth and baptismal record for Tekla Dańko in the Piaski records. The reason I didn’t find a birth and baptismal record in the parish of Piaski was because Tekla was born in Łańcuchnów, a village in the parish of Łańcuchnów. This provides a clue for further research in the parish of Łańcuchnów. The Family History Library has microfilmed records for Łańcuchnów for the years 1733-1890.
