I cannot transcribe this record well. It is a photo of the original record from the Catholic parish in Góra Żnin. What I can read from the record and can verify through the Poznan project website is this:

Date of marriage: October 27, 1851

Groom: Aldabertus Rochowiak, age 50. (I mistranscribed the original age!)
Parents of the groom: Alexander Rochowiak and Marianna Brzycka.
Within the data for the groom, I noticed that the description of viduus, indicating that Adalbertus was widowed and it also seems to indicate that he was from Chomętowo, which where Frances and Andrew were married.

Bride: Marianna Mazana, age 27
Parents of the bride: Lucas Mazany and Marianna Brzycka

So, how does this add up? I don’t know. It’s surprising to me to see the mothers names were the same! Is Brzycka a common name in the Poznan region?

Also, I found another marriage record for Adalbertus Rochowiak dated 1831. The first marriage was Marianna Chlebowska. Because of the time that Frances was born (1859), I am going to assume that she was a child of Adalbertus’ second marriage.

Unfortunately, I am finding it very difficult to find any relatives for Frances! If there are any Toledo Rochowiaks out there and can trace Frances Rochowiak Przybylski to your tree, I would love to hear from you!
