I have not found a Birth and Baptismal Record for Joanna née Kobylińska Chodkowska, but her age at death (sixty-seven years) implies that she was born in October 1788. However, Joanna’s age is very difficult to read in this record – I very well may have misread her age. A compiled genealogy by Adam Pszczólkowski provides the year of her birth as “about 1804″, probably based on his interpretation of Joanna’s age in this same record.
