It appears as if this child on the following birth certificate was born

after his father died

and the child died subsequently at age 1 year 9 months

I thought that the child's birth certificate had a reference in it which stated that the mother, Maria Lo Vecchio was the widow of Calogero Licata.

I'd appreciate the aid of the eyes of the experts Confused

All what you said it's correct. In the birth certificate for Calogero Licata, the midwife declares the birth as it's said at the bottom that the husband was dead. Although quite blurry, you will see after the name of the mother:

Lo Vecchio Maria d'anni quaranta, villica, qui domiciliata vedova di Licata Calogero giĆ  contadino

I'm not sure of the word "villica" but I think tyou are more intersted on the rest of the sentence.

Is this what you where looking for?

Thanks, Ada for confirming my reading of the certificates. The word "Villico" is from French, or so I've read, and is generally translated as peasant or peasant farmer, or something on that order. It seems as that "contadino" and "villico" are used interchangeably.

Actually, the word "villico" is Italian and comes from Latin "vi(l)licu(m)" which on its turn comes from "villa(m)" standing for village, town. The word "villico" is old Italian and used very seldom. It has the same meaning of "contadino". Very Happy

Ada, the source that I mentioned--can't find it now--used the term Villein, which it claimed was from the Middle French with the meaning of serf. The source extended this comparison to the term Villico. In any case the sense of the meaning is comparable.
