An Albazinian, AFANASY Ah, 58-59 yrs., crippled. He studied at the Mission school since a young age and was a very frisky boy. At about 16 years of age, he fell from a city wall and from then on became a cripple: his legs were writhed and he moved with the help of his hands. Having escaped death from the Boxers, when they started to slaughter Christians near the Mission site, Afanasy hid in empty, broken down buildings of Siyefu (四爷府又称履亲王府; present Mission site). On the evening of June 11th, a Boxer having the surname Wang, threatening with a spear, drove him out to Beiguanyu, that is the-then Mission site. When the Boxers, having seized many Christians, led them beyond the Gate (安定门), then Afanasy was taken also; but because he could not walk quickly, they killed him in the same place where he was seized, and they burned his body. Protasy Chan testifies to this as he was an eyewitness. He said Afanasy accepted death silently. Afanasy's wife Varvara, 45 yrs., and their children: Pelagia, 17 yrs; Maria 9 years; Savva, 6 yrs., probably died at the Mission site on June 11th.
