Maria Butera*


Born: about 1775 ~Serradifalco, Caltanisetta, Kingdom of Sicily
Married to Luciano Messina: 16 September 1787 ~Serradifalco, Caltanisetta, Kingdom of Sicily

Died: after 1830

Meaning of Butera [boo-TEHR-uh]: the Sicilian city, Butera

 

*The surname was sometimes given as Botera

 

        No birth or baptism records have been found for my paternal great-great-grandmother Maria Butera.  Her name and approximate year of birth were determined by examining her marriage record and the birth records of her children.  The 1824 civil and church death records of her husband Luciano Messina indicate that she was still living at that time, and her daughter Maria Messina's civil promise of marriage states that Maria Butera was 55 years old in 1830.

        The first record below gives the date 16 September 1787.  The second, starred, record is the church marriage record of my paternal great-great grandparents Luciano Messina and Maria Butera, married on that same day.  All the Latin words aren't decipherable, but the critical information is.
