This is from the 1744 Mattersdorf census.It is the household of Simon Koblenz, age 40. I cannot decipher the name of his wife which is at the end of line two and may continue onto line three. On the sixth line is their child who is 8 years old. I would like to know the name of the child also. Please let me know if there is anything else of genealogical value in this record. Thanks!

The last word on line 2 is "Jette".
Line 3 starts with "alt 35 Jahr" - 35 years old.
Line 6 reads as follows:
Ein Kind Nahmes Isak 8 Jahr - a child named Isak, 8 years
