Wac³aw Piħtkowski ( - 1918)
Actually, I know nothing about my grandfather Waclaw Piatkowski (bearer of Korab coat of arms). There is a chapel in Kolbiela with ashes of Piatkowski family. In those times fate of nobleman's children was usually tragic, due to wars, when fathers usually died, and after-birth fever causing mothers' deaths. Same applied to Waclaw Piatkowski, who was half orphan. Alas, I even do not know whether his mother or father died. He was a member of quite wealthy family and he had at least 2 brothers. He lived with his own family in Ploskirowo and was holding a position of president of rural bank (I have seen nomination act when I was child). He was one of main persons who realised ambitious project of drifting excess of wheat from Podole to Gdansk. He had a diabetes. He died in 1918 in Kamieniec Podolski and most probably he is buried there. He made his 2 daughters Maria and Janina orphans, what fulfilled family tradition...
