[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Deciphering old German script

Just as the previous individual that had a hard-to-decipher script,  I  too 
have an old document that is difficult to completely decipher. 
Though I was told the names,  and I can find those written,  it's  the 
remainder of the entry that has me puzzled. 
The entire document is a page with 6 entries from the church of  Gurske  
(near Thorn).  The one of interest - the baptism,   in November 1748. of my 
probable 4xGreat Grandfather, Andreas  Krampitz, - is written with such 
flourish and embellishment, that it  makes extracting the words difficult I was 
told the parents names are Martin  Krampitz & Maria Zobelin, and  they are 
obvious & easy to  read - it's the rest that isn't.
The document is at: http://imageshack.com/a/img538/3202/pAzVJv.jpg
and,  I *believe* it is the lower right of 6.   
(there is another apparent Krampitz in the upper left)
If needed,  I can send you the document  (first time user of  
Imageshack.com, so hope it's there & usable)
I would much appreciate other eyes that can read  and describe all  that
is written on Andreas' entry.
                                 - - - -
Also, I have a document of my 4xGreat Grandfather, Andreas,  present  at 
the wedding of his "eldest son", Jacob,  in 1794.   If this  baptism of 
Andreas  is of the same Andreas,  I still need who he  married and when and their 
children to tie down the linage.  So,   if you know of a Marriage (to whom & 
when),  and/or births  thereof (including his eldest, Jacob) of an Andreas 
Krampitz,   (marriage ~1768-1774,  children births  thereafter)  -  This 
would help demolish one of  my brick walls.
