Translation help-neat writing but I'm still not sure

Postby sprite1949 » 25 Jun 2015, 16:54

Hello...this is the birth record page of my great-grandmother, Petronilla Palma (#60 bottom left). Is her father's name Epifavio? Does such a name exist in the past? Is her mother's name Caterina Luciani? Any help with the most important details (date: July 20, 1873?, names, ages of parents) would be greatly appreciated. I am not much interested in witness information. My understanding of Italian is minimal. Thanks ahead for an assistance that can be offered!
