Margherita Concetta Antinoro

Born: 27 October 1775 ~Serradifalco, Caltanisetta, Regnu di Sicilia
Died: 30 October 1832 ~ Serradifalco, Caltanissetta, Regnu delle Due Sicilie

Meaning of Antinoro [ahn-tee-NOH-roh]: possibly from the Greek Anthenor, a mythical Trojan


        My great-great-great grandmother Margherita's baptism record and that of her sister Rosaria gives her surname as Antinoro.    It is alternately given as Antinorio on her husband Giuseppe Abbate's death record and her own death record, and on the marriage records of her children.  She is shown as living on the 1832 death record of her husband, and deceased on the 1834 marriage record of her son Giuseppe Abate.  Because of factors probably associated with the cholera epidemic of that time, civil death records for 1831 and 1832 are missing for Serradifalco. 
       An epidemic struck the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies that year and almost 600 residents of Serradifalco perished, about one out of every eight people.  However, the church record of her death survived, and is shown here.
       Both Giuseppe and Margherita died in 1832.
