For the dates, the first day/month is given according to the Julian calendar, which was still the official calendar in Tsarist Russia, however because Markuszow was in Congress Poland, which also used the Gregorian ("Western") calendar, which was a couple weeks later, those are the second dates that are given in parentheses.
