Help me decipher handwriting too?

Help me decipher handwriting too?

I've found the birth record for my great-grandfather, but I can't decipher the handwriting. He is the last entry on the page. His name is Emil Greschek, and I believe his parents were Anton and Amelia from Wagstadt, Austria. Any help would be much appreciated!

The record is in German and says:

Birth of Emil on October 29, 1881 at house no. 38

Father: Anton Greschek, shoemaker in Wagstadt, son of Josef Greschek, Häusler (cottager) in Polanka and his wife Marianna nee Pawelek of Podwihof. [The second letter of Greschek, the "r", has a hacek on top which makes the sound as if you speak r and sh at the same time.]

Mother: Amalia, daughter of Raimund Teschner, linenmaker in Wagstadt and his wife Amalia nee Beier, also of Wagstadt.

Both father and mother were Roman-catholics.

The officiating priest was Alois Reichel, junior priest. The midwife was Benedikta Hirt of Wagstadt house no. 141.

The godparents were Wenzel Rehsel(?), linenmaker in Wagstadt, and Benedikta Hirt, widow after Raimund Hirt, linenmaker in Wagstadt,

The record was made and signed by Alois Reichel.
