Continuing on with the Coufal research, I'm hoping to get a transcription/translation of marriage records for Andreas/Ondrej Coufal. Thanks to aksamitnik01 for helping me gather this data. You might want to read this post through to the end before looking up anything, as most of it is not useful, and is included only for documentation purposes.

Also, I need the correct spellings of his wives' maiden names, with diacritical marks.

Andreas's death appears to be 11 Oct 1801. He is age 78, which would put his birth about 1723. Signatura 10187. House 45 in Dalešice.

This ties in ok with his first marriage in 1749; he would have been 26. Signatura Dalešice 10178 image 87.
Right side, 3rd record

This record is the most significant from a genealogy standpoint, as it lists his father and village, etc. I can guess that he is the legitimate son of the deceased Matej, but I cannot decipher the village. The bride is Mariana, legitimate daughter of Simon Skůla of Dalešice. Or is it Škula? Her birth record is the 5th entry on

I have looked back through all the birth records in Signatura 10177 for Dalešice, and found only one Coufal. So it looks to me like Andreas married into the family in Dalešice. That's my theory right now, but to narrow down the search, I need to find his home village, and then his birth record.

From the first marriage, I found only two children, both deceased, both girls.
On to the second marriage to Barbara. Again, all daughters, early deaths for 5 of the 6. The marriage record:

Is her maiden name Koči or Kocza? Or some other variation?

Her birth record, Signatura 10177, image 46, left side, 3rd from bottom:

The birth records of the daughters do not give any new info. Signatura 10178, images 38, 40, 47, 50, 55 and 58.
Third marriage to Theresia Potůček, same Signatura, image 103.

They have 6 children, b. 1776 - 1789, but grandparents are not mentioned in any of the birth records. Catharina, Kaspar, Anton, Barbara, Mathias, and Johann. The last two list the house number as 45.
So, in summary, the best source for additional data is the original marriage record,
Right side, 3rd record

Additionally, the spellings of the surnames of the first two wives. First marriage, strana 87 above. Second marriage:

Děkují in advance.
