"Maestro" Stefano Potestio, widower of Anna Lunetta (sp?) died on Apr 26th, 1817 at age about 77 and was buried in the Parish of San Giovanni Battista.
Do you know where this is from? Is it from Polizzi?

Thank you! It was from a marriage allegati - the marriage took place in Polizzi Generosa so it's likely this was from the same location.

Yes, the church of San Giovanni Battista was in Polizzi but was demolished in 1892 for the construction of what is called the "Carrozzabile Collesano," a road for vehicular traffic. There was a pdf file, if you do a google search, but the link no longer works.
