Hania - I have corresponded with another Nebyliw descendant who sent me some information he had researched. His information may have come from a book a Nebyliw resident had written. I know it sounds rather vague, I have to look into my computer and find all the information...From the information I have the soldiers were peasants who were fighting Tatars. The Tatars apparently had raids into this area, perhaps to capture slaves. I had read somewhere once about a Tatar raid against Perehinsko, a neighbouring village.
