Aos oito de Marco de mil novecentos e dezenove foi sepultado no Cemiterio publico desta Villa o cadaver de Maria Amelia da Conceicao com quarenta e trez annos de idade cazada com Antonio Avelino de Macedo, o cadaver foi emcommendado moradores nesta Freguezia.
Para constar mandei fazer este assento.
Pe Antonio augusto, Vigario
On the eighth of March of nineteen hundred and nineteen was buried in the Public Cemetery of this township the body of Maria Amelia da Conceicao at fourty three years of age married to Antonio Avelino de Macedo, the body was designated as residents of this County.
For the record I made this truthful account
Father Antonio Augusto, vicar.
Items of Note:
- Maria died on 8 Mar 1919, and Antonio married his next wife, Leonizia on 7 Apr 1920 just over a year later.
- Maria was 43 years old when she died, did she really die in childbirth and was it really her first child as my father said? If Maria was Antonio's 3rd wife, maybe she was married before? Or, maybe they hadn't been married long?
