Lithuania revision list notation of military recruit not an immediate family member. #general #lithuania

I found this comment in a 1868 Lithuanian military revision list "for this family in 1844 recruited DREYSHPUL Iosel son of Girsh"   and similar entries.  I have found information that the conscription was by family but what was the mechanism of selecting a person, or as suggested by some entries a person with a different surname.  Did the selected person come from the same community or could it be elsewhere? How close a relative was the recruit to the family to satisfy the requirement? In this example there is no record of Iosel son of Girsh or of Girsh in the local listings
