Reply with quote

I'm trying to find the birthplace of a great-great-uncle. My great-great-grandparents Antoni and Walerya Chalupczysnki were married in 1876 in Słupia parish, just Southeast of Sierpc. Their first son was born that same year (1876), and was likewise born in Słupia parish. As was their 3rd son in 1884, and all their children after that.

But their 2nd son (named Konstanty), who was born in 1880, was not born in Słupia parish. Instead his naturalization papers say he was born in "Rzochow" Poland.

I have searched a long time for a village or town named "Rzochow", anywhere near the Płock/ Sierpc area. There's a Rzochów near Mielec, but that's way down in Southeastern Poland. I wouldn't expect Antoni and Walerya to be all the way down there in 1880. Unless there was some unusual reason.

Does anyone have any ideas? Could Rzochow be misspelled? Konstanty seemed to be quite literate, and should have known how to correctly spell his birth village. Thanks.
