Johann Schittkowski, relative?

One of the records I received from the Archives in Gdansk was this document.  After having it translated by Brigitte Eggerstedt on my Genealogy Translations Facebook Page, I realized this is not the ancestor I hoped it would be.  But, this Johann is in the same locale so could be a nephew or cousin.  I am posting it here to keep for when I hopefully make the connection.  What a horrible way to die!  Now to the next document…
