Giuseppe Battaglia is born 26 October 1846 in Corleone and baptized two days later. He is the son of Domenico Battaglia and Providenza Bologna ("Bulogna"). His father, a trafficante, age 24 (b. 1822), reports his birth in Domenico and Providenza's home on via del Carmine in Corleone. His mother, Providenza, is 28 (b. 1818).[1] His godparents are Antonino and Francesca Bulogna, mother and unmarried son.[2]

Giuseppe, who is a trafficante (merchant) by profession at this time, marries Rosa di Miceli on 27 April 1870. His father has died by this time.[3]

Maria Rosa and Giuseppe have at least nine children: Providenza (1871), Giovanna (1882), Domenica (1884), Maria Anna (1889), Francesca (c. 1890), Maria Assunta (1892), two sons named Emmanuele (1895 and 1896), and Giuseppa (1898).

Providenza is born 26 January 1871 and baptized two days later, named after her paternal grandmother. Her godparents are Antonino di Miceli and Rosalia Crapa.[4] She dies on 2 February, at one week of age.[5]

Giovanna is born 17 February 1882. [6]

Domenica is born 10 August 1884.[7]

Maria Anna is born 19 October 1889.[8]

By 1890, Giuseppe is identified as the president of the Fratuzzi, the Mafia in Corleone.[9][10]

Francesca is known from the record of her death in infancy on 9 November 1890.[11]

Maria Assunta is born in August 1892 to Giuseppe Battaglia, trafficante (merchant), and Maria Rosa Di Miceli. They live at via Piazza, 33. The midwife reports her birth as Giuseppe is out of town.[12] She is baptized 3 September.[13]

John Alcorn names seven mafiosi, including the president of the Fratuzzi, among the officers and influential members of the Fasci Siciliani in 1893.[14]

The first son named Emanuele is born in October 1895 in Corleone, the son of Giuseppe Battaglia, trafficante (merchant), and Maria Rosa Di Miceli. They live at via Piazza, 33.[15] The birth of a second son named Emmanuele on 6 June 1896[16] indicates the older boy by this name has died.

Giuseppa is born 6 May 1898.[17]

Giovanna marries Antonino Rizzo on 28 October 1908 in Corleone. The witnesses are Dr. Vincenzo Piazza and Dr. Leoluca di Palermo.[18]

Domenica dies 26 March 1909 at age 24. She is unmarried.[19]

The state names named Giuseppe Battaglia fu Domenico (cl. 1846), presidente dell’associazione “fratuzzi”, among associates including Angelo Gagliano.[20]
