...not easy, this is what I read, but need a ten-eyes check...

May 28, 1812
Madalena Copat, peasant, 75 years old, wife of Paulo Vetor, peasant, living in this town, died this morning at 6.
Her husband, who was 75 and a peasant, was one of the witnesses, and declared that she was born in Palse (this is existing, so I think it's the most likely reading) hamlet of Pordenone, the daughter of Batista Copat and Ossvalda Faveiro (maybe they meant Faverio?).

In Veneto area, the spelling of names is affected by the dialectal pronounciation (above all of double consonants, that often become single). Also, it was the the language they spoke two centuries ago. So, in Italian, you would now have Maddalena, Paolo, Battista, Vettor, Osvalda.
