This is evidently the death record of my great-great-great-great-grandfather Leib Smola. (I believe records for this year are in Russian, vs. Polish. I would love a full translation. Thanks so much for your generous assistance!

5/27/2014 7:50 AM It came to pass in the Town of Kolo on the twenty-seventh day of February in the year of one thousand eight hundred and sixty-four at the hour of eight in the morning. Appeared personally Orthodox Jews Mosiek Wildpret, a grave digger, forty-four years of age, and Jakob Zelig, a carpenter, fifty years of age, both of them residing in Kolo, and jointly declared that Lejbus Smola, a quilt maker, fifty years of age, had deceased the day before at the hour of eight in the morning here in Kolo leaving behind widow Aidel and his three children, all of them residing in Kolo. There was ascertainment by eyewitnesses regarding the death of Lejbus Smola. The actual act was read aloud to the appearers, neither of whom knew how to write, and subsequently signed myself.
