Lucia Cascio is born 2 December 1835 and baptized the next day, named after her paternal aunt. She is the daughter of Stefano Cascio and Carmela Streva.[1] Her godparents are Giuseppe and Marianna Panepinto, a married couple.

Lucia's father, Stefano, dies at age 73 (b. 1780) on 18 April 1853.

Lucia marries Luciano Gennaro[2] less than two months later, on 5 June. They are both farmers (villici).

Lucia and Luciano have at least eight children: Angela (1854), Carmela (1856), Rosa (1858), Maria Antonia (1860), two daughters named Giovanna (1862 and 1872), Michelangelo (1864), and Stefano (1877).

The first girl named Giovanna dies on 30 May 1863 at six months of age. See the Cascio Family Space for a short discussion on naming conventions.

Angela is born 15 April 1854 and baptized the next day. Her godparents are Joannes Labruzzo and Maria Grizzaffi.

Carmela, named after her maternal grandmother, is born and baptized 26 February 1856. Her godparents are Theodorus Lisotta and Francisca Maggiore, a married couple.

Rosa is born 12 July 1858 and baptized Rosam the next day. Her godmother is Maria Carmela Gennaro, unmarried daughter of Michaelangeli.

Maria Antonia is born 13 March 1860, according to the civil record of her baptism, included with her 1881 marriage publication. Maria Antonia marries Francesco Cascio, her second cousin. Their daughter, Lucia, shares both first and last name with her maternal grandmother.

The first daughter named Giovanna is born and baptized Joannam on 21 December 1862. Her godfather is the unmarried Marianus Cascio, Lucia's brother. Giovanna is presumed to have died some time before 1872, when her sister is born.

Michelangelo is born on 18 December 1864 in his parents' home in via S. Elena, Corleone. The midwife, Francesca Paola De Luca, age 59, reports his birth, and his parents' ages: Lucia is 28 (b. 1836), and Luciano is 35 (b. 1829). He is baptized the same day as Michalangelum. His godparents are Vincenzo Guarino and Anna Maria Ligotino, a married couple.

The second daughter named Giovanna is born 3 January 1872 and baptized Joannam the next day. Her godfather is the unmarried Salvatore Cascio the son of Lucia's brother, Marco.

Angela marries Luciano Jannazzo, her first cousin, on 8 September 1872 in Corleone. It is the first marriage for either of them. Their Church marriage is dated the following day. Rosalia Cascio, Luciano Janazzo's mother, is Lucia's sister.

No children of this marriage have been recorded. Angela dies at age 21, on 26 February 1875. Her husband and parents survive her.

Carmela dies at age 20 (b. 1856) on 1 March 1876. She is unmarried.

Stefano is born 17 February 1877 and baptized the next day as Stephanum, named after his maternal grandfather. His godparents are Cajetanus di Palermo and Rosa Gennaro, a married couple. Stefano dies on 27 May 1880 at three years of age.

Rosa marries Giovanni Cascio, her second cousin, on 19 November 1877.

Maria Antonia marries Francesco Cascio, Giovanni's brother, on 31 October 1881. Because of the 1877 marriage, and also because Lucia is Francesco's first cousin, once removed, this marriage includes a dispensation due to consanguinity.

Michelangelo, called a borgese (middle class person) in his marriage notice, marries Biagia Jovino in 1884, when he is 19 and she is 20.

The surviving daughter named Giovanna (b. 1872) marries Giovanni Scalisi on 25 February 1889, when she is sixteen.

Maria Antonia dies at age 30 (b. 1860) on 3 May 1890. Her husband and parents all survive her.
