Gallo and what is his domiciliato say and what is his mother last name, Maria Francesca ....... also her age is 80 but is she dead or she died at 80 years old?

...on this 20th day of November 1838, at 16:00, is deceased in his house, Pietro Giuseppe Gallo, husband of Carmela Barrillo, born in this comune, son of Umile Gallo, deceased, property owner, who lived here, and Maria Francesca d'Avalio, deceased, who also lived here, age eighty [referring to Pietro Giuseppe], property owner, who lived here on Strada San Luca.

Umile, if correct, is an unusual---but not unknown---given name. Barrillo and d'Avalio might be spelled somewhat differently.

If this can be of interest, the declarant is Giovanni Gallo, 38 years, son of the deceased. The other declarant is Giovanni Borrello (or Barrillo) 38 years, a cousin?

thanks John Armellino for the translation, I think the last name for Maria might be D'avalio but like you said its hard to know for sure. I saw that also about Giovanni Borrello here the last name looks like Borello but by Carmela it looks like an I, Barrillo. Giovanni Borrello also appears in one of Giovanni Gallo's kid death certificate. they must be related or really good friends. Thanks again John and Ada
