        No baptism or birth record survives for my GGGG-grandfather Pietro Lattuca.  His existence is known from the death records of his three known daughters.  He was a contadino, a peasant sharecropper who raised crops on another's property and kept a portion as his pay.  It's assumed he was living at the birth of his youngest known daughter Francesca, in about 1804.  On the 1821 record of the death of his daughter Maria, he was listed as deceased.


Pietro Lattuca married Crocifissa Papia
