      I did find an older sibling for Susanna, and the handwriting was much better.  I
      agree it is Oszczity. 

      I found her death on this page: 

      I was wondering where they came from since I cannot find their marriage registry
      in Horne Oresany (her birthplace) or Budmerice (place of death).  There is a
      word that looks like "Bogdanore"  under the 4th column which I thought was for
      listing place of origin and address. Does this mean anything to anyone?  It is
      the last entry on the page,  #38.

      I concur and stand corrected. Oscity/Oscita appear in current phone listings.
