I have had a suspicion that my great grandmother Carmela Esposito who was born as a foundling was likely a Cicco. Both my grandfather's and his brother Saverio's Pennsylvania marriage licenses show their mother as Carmela "Chick." Recent additions to the Pennsylvania death certificates on Ancestry include my grandfather's brothers Antonio and Angelo death certs which both give their mother's name as Carmela Cicco.

I found her 1840s birth act on a microfilm from FHC but there are no annotations, likely because the comune did not have a copy. If one or both of her birthparents came forward to claim her would that information be on her death record?

The microfilms are the copies, the Comune have the original which would have the annotations, if there are any.
If she was claimed by one or both parents this would be noted and her surname changed to theirs. You need to remember that in many small towns a child was abandoned in name only since the law forbade the naming of more than one parent if the couple were not married. (Even if they had done the church ceremony) This child of unnamed parents was often raised by its natural mother and often known locally by the parents surname. It is only officially that the child is born to unknown parents. Since she was female it wasn't necessary to claim her and 'give' her a name in the same was as it would have been for a male. A female, on marriage, and/or death loses her surname. Unless she has a child out of wedlock the surname she was given will die with her. The expense of claiming the child isn't worth it.

Thanks, Ann.

My grandmother was born Carmela Esposito, "parenti ignoti" on her 1845 birth record. Likewise, on her 1866 marriage act her parents are also listed as unknown. I'll be writing to request her death act to see if it contains any possible information.

Best,
Biff
