Maria Uccello/Amato

Postby Amansolillo » 18 Sep 2014, 21:58

My great-great-grandfather was Giuseppe Uccello of Canicattini Bagni. His wife was Santa Cultrera. On Giuseppe and Santa's marriage record, Giuseppe's parents are listed as being Sebastiano Uccello and Maria Uccello. I was able to find Sebastiano's death record, which substantiated the fact that Giuseppe's mother's name was Maria Uccello. However, on Giuseppe's death record, his mother is listed as being Maria Amato. I am very confused by as to why Maria's last name is different in this record. Does anybody know why this may be?

It's a death record. Look at who made the declaration. Was it a son, or the undertaker? A son would get the surname right but the undertaker may not have known and simply gave the husband's surname.

I just looked at Sebastiano and Giuseppe's death records again. The declarations for each death record were not made by a son of Sebastiano or Giuseppe's. I have attached links to the records for you to see in case I have missed anything:
