Peter yes it is the same person i was hoping that someone may know of the origins of the name rather than the specific person. Ancestry.com shows a number of people around the correct time in Como. I really appreciate the tips you gave me before although wasnt yet able to find the right person.
Many thanks again

Perhaps if you sift thru the POSCO SURNAME GENEALOGY ITALY on www.google.com you might find the source of the surname Posco. However it is not considered an Italian surname by origin or geography and is either a local creation or imported from abroad in the mists of time. The Italian word vocabulary for the closest thing to POSCO is POSCA which is defined as "vinegar and water".

The surname may have had a foreign spelling or pronunciation that evolved into its latin form in Italy. Only further research may eleicit more information. Lots of luck. =Peter=
