Hi Terry,

so you cannot find any Titchkosky/Weinoth (or Tyczkowksi/Weinert or
whatever variation) couple? And no Wilhelm born 1873?

The info is apparently from Wilhelm's death record and you may want to
consider, that these are often inaccurate, because they depend on the
person reporting the death. What did he know about the deceased? Was it
a son, neighbor or distant relative? From my experience, especially the
age routinely differs (although looking precise: "68y 10m 7 d") and the
mother's maiden name is frequently unknown.

While I do not see any Titchkosky/Weinoth couple, there is a suspicious
family with some similarities in Lublin parish and then Rozyszcze:
- Heinrich TYCZKOWSKI oo Anna Elisabeth BLOCH
They lived in Antonin (Firlej, Lubartow, Lublin) in 186x/187x and had
several kids there until 1877, among them a Wilhelm, born 1868. Later
they settled in one of the Alexandrowkas (Rozyszcze), where more
children were born between 1879 and 1886.

So. There is a Wilhelm, but the age differs by five years. The father
was Heinrich, but the mother's name does not fit. The place seemingly
doesn't fit, but although Wilhelm was born in Antonin, he apparently was
raised in Alexandrowka.

I have no idea if those people have anything to do with yours, but it
may be worth looking deeper into it.
