Translation of mother's last name ?

Postby Josie07M11 » 04 Aug 2013, 09:15

Hi!

I discovered another of my ancestor's death records and am having trouble figuring out whether Francesco's mother's last name is written in this record. I can read that his father was Simone Rapisarda and that his mother's first name was Lucia but no last name. Also his wife's name is Sebastiana which I can read but her last name is confusing. Can someone help? Thank you!

Link to the record. Francesco Rapisarda's is on the top right:

It looks like it may be SAPUPPO which is a surname found in Ramacca :-)

Thanks Tessa. Does it look like there's any mention of Lucia's last name? I can't tell, much less decipher.

Francesco Rapisarda, 60 years old, son of the late Simone and Lucia Titè (this last name doesn't exist. Maybe it is an invented last name for a foundling), husband of Sebastiana Sapuppo, died in Ramacca on January 16, 1867
