Arsita (Baccucco), Teramo – On today’s date in 1865, my 3rd great grandparents Anna Antonia Ricci and Giuseppe Antonio Rossi were married in Arsita, Teramo, Abruzzo in the parish of Santa Vittoria.
Their marriage record stated that Anna Antonia Ricci was born in Castiglione Messer Raimondo, 29, had been living in Baccucco since infancy, was a contadina, and that her parents were Girolamo Ricci and Giustina Andreoli. Her parents were both born in Penne.
For the groom, the marriage record stated that Giuseppe Antonio Rossi was 32, a contadino, was born in Penne, was a resident of Baccucco, and was the son of Domenico Rossi and Anna Domenica Della Bricciosa, both contadini.
Present at Santa Vittoria were Giovantonio di Candeloro and Pasquale Pacelli. One of those men was likely the priest.
The four men that gave testimony at the Town Hall as witnesses to the marriage were:
Angelo Palini, 50, a tailor, resident of Baccucco;
Giandomenico di Pomponio, 33, a tailor, resident of Baccucco;
Giuseppe Absente, 60, a contadino, resident of Baccucco; and
Angelo di Giacinto, 59, a carpenter, resident of Baccucco.
NOTE: Domenico Rossi, my 4th great grandfather, signed his son’s marriage record. It is legible on the above second page of the marriage document.
The bride and groom were the parents of Elisabetta Rossi – the mother of Cesidio Marcella.
