death record #938 Nicola Grasso

I would appreciate any thoughts on the spelling of his mother's last name - Raffaella Ver????

Also, I read his wife's name as Carmela Maruso. Is this accurate?

thanks,

tessa,
thanks so much for your efforts.
There are some letters that clearly are still a challenge for me!

Come sempre, grazie

livio
thanks for picking up on my error that last digit. i see it now in the longer spelling. in the writing after 'dico' that is where it looked like otto, not sette, to me.

i appreciate your eagle eyes!
