Sosnowski is best remembered as the father of a love interest of [[Tadeusz Kościuszko]]'s, Ludwika Sosnowska. Sosnowski refused him his daughter's hand, reputedly telling the future hero of the [[American Revolution]] and leader of Poland's [[Kosciuszko Uprising]] against Russia that "[[Streptopelia|turtledove]]s are not for common sparrows, and magnates' daughters are not for petty nobility."
