I am looking for the 1st name of the deceased. Looks something like Maryilio ?

Thanks, jerry

I read it as Marzilio :-)

I have seen Marfisio, but not Marfilio... this would be new to me.

I actually see many references to the name Marfilio on google books.

Well, no consensus on Marfilio or Marzilio yet! :)

Thanks Erudita & Tessa,

I'll go with Marzilio, as T suggested, as the fourth letter does look like a "z" and not the "f" which is in the word for deceased. The first name Marfilio seems very ancient from the references in which it appears.
