This is one of those records that makes you pause! I can see that it is for Rozalia Wavra, age 95, and I assume she is the widow of the deceased Mathas Wavra in Budikovice. The date is 6 April 1851, burial on 8 April 1851. House 3. But there are several words I cannot read, including one that looks like Killian to me, but since I spot the same word on the next page, I am certainly wrong. It is the 3rd record on this link:

Signatura 11044, Snimek 144

and I am also attaching a snip of the text in question.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you so much! So the word that I thought was "Killian" is "Wittwe". Exactly one letter correct. Another word to add to my list of those I can recognize. Now that I know how the writer made "W", it will help in other transcriptions.

As for cause of death, possibly it is an expression meaning "old age". In a future record, Rozalie's daughter, also named Rozalie, lived to be age 80 or so. Actually, I don't think they died that far apart. The household seemed to have many elderly relatives in it.

Again, thank you.
