2/13/2019 9:16 PM I very much doubt that father's occupation was gnome, and I do know a rather common surname of Pukacz, so perhaps the man's name is, as written, Jozef Braunn Pukacz. The word in question does appear where one would usually find occupation noted and the word may also have meant some occupation, but I have no evidence to support that possibility. The witnesses are both tailors, perhaps his colleagues.

JBP, 40, local
Rycze Lintarn [not LILENTAL], 30
Ruchel Braun, born 11 March 1855
