Are these the same people?

Post by prosockmonkey07 »

Gaspare Bono was born in 1866. He was born in Monreale, Italy. He was the son of Girolamo Bono and Lucia Li Fonti. There is also a daughter with the same parents born in 1868 and a son in 1870. I looked thru the entire index and found only one marriage record for Girolamo Bono & Lucia Lifonti. But, it is from 1870. I have never come across this issue before. Below is the marriage record: ... cc=2046915

It definitely happens that couples had children when unmarried and later they married. Often you'll see a notation on a civil marriage record that the marriage legitimizes the births of prior children, listing them with names and birth dates. Do you have birth records for the children? If so, what does it say about the parents?
