Looking for Clues

Postby mdyer » 27 May 2012, 06:51

I've found a few records recently that could be possible matches for relatives, but I can't find definitive links that confirm the documents are for my relatives. I'm wondering if I've overlooked any clues, and would appreciate feedback for the following images.

First up is Saverio Romano - a great-grandfather. I know his daughter was named Camilla Romano and it's from Camilla's marriage processetti (a 1795 birth extract) that I learned her father's name, Saverio, and his wife (her mother) Giuseppa di Manna.

I've found two death records for a Saverio Romano, and both were married with kids (I can't make out name matches). Based on the info mentioned above, I'm curious if anyone sees a link I missed? Did they note if a spouse was a second wife?

The next question is regarding Antonio Prioriello. He married Restituta di Massimo. They had several children, including Vincenzo. I found a death record for an Antonio Prioriello, but I don't see anything to suggest he was married or had children, which I need in order to confirm a match. Have I overlooked some other indication of his marriage?

Thanks!

The first should not be him: Saverio Romano, son of the deceased Giovanni and Teresa Pezzetta (?), leaves wife Scolastica Prioriello and children Michelangelo, Carlo, Pietro, giovanni, Costantino, Gaudenzio, Vittoria and Potenzia (?)

The second is son of Michele and Agnese Mignetta. I can't read it well, but it seems he leaves son Michele "per Rosa" (as on he had from wife Rosa). Other names are circled (and most are the same as the children of the other Saverio), so may be it was a mistake...but if so, why aren't they erased? I can't tell you...

As to Antonio Prioriello, the record doesn't mention wife nor children.

Thanks for the review and feedback. Definitely puzzling about Saverio's records.
