Giuseppe Governali is born around 1818 in Corleone, the son of Maestro Gaetano Governali and Rosa Lipari. Giuseppe is named after his paternal grandfather.
By the time Giuseppe is 19, his mother has died and his father is remarried.
Giuseppe dies at age 19 (b. 1818) on 21 July 1837.
The Church does not record his death as a murder. However, in Don Colletto's history of Corleone, he writes that at the height of the cholera epidemic, rumors of poison raced through the town, and on 21 July a mob took four men: Leone lo Bue, Gaetano Governali and his son Giuseppe, and Ciro Boscarelli. They dragged the victims to the Gatto bridge, brutally beat them, and shot them to death with rifles. The main aggressors in the crowd were Catinotto Moscoglione, Liborio Perricone, Leoluca Milone, Simone Maione, and Benedetto Glorietti, all but the last, natives of Corleone. Giuseppe Catalinotto, Liborio Pirricone, Leoluca Milone, Simone Majuri, and Benedetto di Mitri, are all executed on 2 August.
