Who is Sabina Esposito?

Postby rp76226 » 26 Jun 2016, 19:14

Giuseppe Puma, son of Giuseppe Puma and Calogera Macaluso, had two known marriages, but within his records, three wive's names appear. The first link is his 1864 church marriage record to Sabina Parto - https://postimg.org/image/h07ynfrxz/ . The second link is his 1867 church marriage record to Rosa Zaffuto - https://postimg.org/image/61ngqimgn/ In that record he is listed as the widower of Sabina Esposito instead of Sabina Parto. The third link is his civil record death record showing him as the widower of his first wife Sabina Parto, with no mention of his then current wife, Rosa Zaffuto even though they had a son in the year that he died - https://postimg.org/image/9v7tjh3sx/ So, who is Sabina Esposito who was mentioned as his first wife in his second marriage record. Seemingly, his real first wife was Sabina Parto, not Sabina Esposito.

From record to record, the confusion with surnames "Parto" and "Esposito" may be related to the fact that Sabina Parto (in the church marriage record) is identified as born to unknown parents. As you know, these children were often referred to as "esposto" - exposed, and were given the name Esposito/Esposto, among others (Proietti, Trovato, etc.)
The surname "Parto" does not exist in Sicily today.

In the second record (marriage) he is the widower of Sabina "Esposto" - more than likely a reference to her parentage(?)...

In the death record he is "vedovo in secondo" - widower in the second - but I do not understand why Rosa is not mentioned unless there was no civil registration of marriage for them.

Good information, but a couple of questions. First, the document for the death of Sabina appears to be not for her, but for the death of Maria Bartolotta, Giuseppe's first wife who I was previously unaware of.

Secondly, in the birth act of Sabina, who is Rosa Zafutto (mother?, witness? midwife?)? Rosa Zafutto is also the name of Giuseppe's third wife. Has to be an older, different Rosa Zafutto, but I wonder if a relationship exists.

In the records posted above

- In birth of Sabina Parto, the mother is Rosa Zaffuto (age 46), father unknown.

-Marriage of Sabina Parto to Giuseppe di Puma, her mother is Rosa Zaffuto (age 67.)

-You will need to do more research to discover if the Rosa Zaffuto who married Giuseppe di Puma might be related.
