Francesca Infantina

Born: about 1827 ~ Montalbano di Elicona, Messina, Kingdom of the Two Siciliies
Died: 3 Jul 1882 ~ Montalbano di Elicona, Messina, Sicily

Meaning of Infantina (in-fahn-TEE-nuh): little infant


        From her record of death and the records of birth for her children, Angela Bongiovanni's great-grandmother Francesca Infantina was probably born in about 1827 and married Giuseppe Bongiovanni circa 1848.  Unfortunately, the civil records for those dates are missing, and the only extant records are her 1882 record of death, and the birth and marriage records of her children.
