        My maternal GGG-grandfather Pietro Cimino was a contadino (sharecropper).  Peasants worked land own by a landlord, and for their pay kept a small percentage of the crop.  The land he worked was probably owned by Duke Domenico Antonio Lo Faso Pietrasanta, the Baron of the fief and town of Serradifalco.  The Baron owned the land, and very nearly owned the peasants.  Pietro was born during the reign of the King of the Two Sicilies, Ferdinando I (also known as Ferdinando III and IV!!), who in turn was a subject of his father King Carlos III of Spain and All its Holdings (including Sicily, where Carlos was known as  Carlo V).   Carlo's image was on the Spanish coins which were 'coin of the realm' in Sicily

         Eastern North America in 1775 was comprised of thirteen colonies of Great Britain, ruled by King George III.

       There were no civil birth records in 1775, when Pietro was born.  The second record below is his baptismal record (the date of the record is given for the first person on the page, as 19 December 1775.
