J. Kraskowski (1843-1932) - "from a landed gentry family from Grodno. As a student of war engineering in Vilna, he organized the transportation of weapons and ammunition for the uprising. Weapons collected by him and his colleagues were carried to the railroad depot and hidden at the bottom of the wagons covered with gravel. As a result of the train driver's treachery, the affair came to light, and 300 people - including Kraskowski - were imprisoned. Sentenced to death, pardoned, he was exiled 'in the sołdaty' to Siberia, where he spent nine years. In the last years of his life, he was an ensign of the historic banner of Edmund Taczanowski's unit, which was donated to the Society of Friends of Veterans of 1863, and vice-president of the Mutual Aid Association of Participants of the 1863 Uprising. He was awarded the Cross of Valor. His ceremonial funeral was attended, among others, by Marshal Pilsudski's wife."
