We make it known that in the presence of witnesses: Edward Nowakowski, a farmer from Sikuty, twenty-seven years old, and Jan Niedziałkowski, a farmer from Ciepielewo, fifty years old, a religious marriage was contracted between: Józef Niedziałkowski, an unmarried man, a farmer, thirty years old, a permanent resident of the Smrock Gmina, born and residing in Pomaski of the Szwelice parish, son of Teofil Niedziałkowski, a farmer, and his wife Ksawera née Zygmuntowicz – and Józefa Kołakowska, widow of Edmund Kołakowski, a farmer who died in Warsaw at the Hospital of the Infant Jesus in the parish of Saint Barbara on the sixth day of June in the year one-thousand nine-hundred twenty-seven, [she is] thirty-three years old, a permanent resident of the Smrock Gmina, born in Sikuty of the Szwelice parish, residing in Ciepielewo, daughter of the deceased Antoni Pomaski, a farmer, and the still-living widow Paulina née Nosarzewska. This wedding was preceeded by one announcement of the banns in the Szwelice and Szelków parish churches on the twenty-second day of January of the current year. A dispensation from two of the banns was obtained from the authority of the church on the twenty-sixth day of January of the current year. The newlyweds stated that they had made no prenuptial agreement between them. This religious rite was performed by the Reverend Edmund Biesżkowski, pastor of the parish of Szelków. After reading this document aloud, it was signed by us, the newlyweds, and the witness Edward Nowakowski. The witness Jan Niedziałkowski is illiterate.

Józef Niedziałkowski was the brother of my maternal grandfather, Kostanty Niedziałkowski. This marriage was the first for Józef Niedziałkowski, but it was the second marriage for Józefa Pomaska. her first husband, Edmund Kołakowski, died in the Hospital of the Infant Jesus in Warsaw the previous year. The record states that both of the newlyweds were permanent residents of the Smrock Gmina. Both of the newlyweds were born in the Szwelice parish, Józef in Pomaski, and Józefa in Sikuty (called Pomaski-Sikuty in the Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego).
This record agrees with the marginal notes of marriages in the copy of the Birth and Baptismal Record of Józef Niedziałkowski – 1897.
