Interpretation of death record of Joseph Salvia

Postby Pontiusmaximus » 03 Aug 2016, 19:20

Question about the meaning of the word 'loco' in the context of this death record. I know that Joseph was married to 'primo loco' Concetta Grillo, but following her name is 'secondo loco' Antonia Grillo and 'trimo(sp) loco' Maria Grazia Biundo(sp) and so forth giving his parents, etc. I don't want to assume, but is this an indication that those were previous wives or something else?

Primo loco = in the first place
Secondo loco = in the second place
Ultimo loco = in the last place.

I believe he was a widower - outliving all of the wives.

T is correct. All three wives predeceased him. Thanks for catching my mistake T. Erudita

I had not seen your other post - but I believe you stated it correctly :-)
