Postby Athena » 11 Aug 2016, 04:27

Need help please!!!

This is what I think is says, Concetta DiGarbo # 109 Died April 27,1901 at the age of 74.
Father Antonio mother Maddalena can't make out the last name, husband Antonio Presti ( I think they mean Prestianni)

She died on the day before the declaration, the 26th.
I think her mother's surname is Accorso.

Fyi - both parents and husband are deceased. She was a widow.
She was a shepherd like her father.

The mother's name is Maddalena Occorso.

Presti is also a surname that appears in the town.

Thank you both.
So being that the last Presti isn't my Prestianni then this isn't whom I was hoping for.

When they say she was a shepherd, what does that mean?

Basically a shepherd is a person who looks after the sheep - they move them to greener pastures, they lead them, protect them etc. What it looked like for a woman in the mid-late 1800's in Italy, would be an interesting topic to research.
