DENZA Maria Giuseppa Clementin (Luisa)
Birth:          1810 
Death:          13 Oct 1877 Centurano, San Clemente, Caserta, Italy


The following can be explained by the fact that Maria Giuseppa Prata married a Giuseppe Nicola Zona, who 
is NOT the father of Clementina because he and Prata had a child one month later, AND, more importantly, 
Clementina's birth certificate lists her mother as Luisa Denza, and her father as 35 and mother Luisa as 32
Definitely there has been added to familysearch, early in 2004, a marriage record for Giuseppe Nicola Zona, 
son of Antonio Zona and Maria Sarchione, to Maria Giuseppa Prata
is she the Maria Giuseppa Prata who 7 May 1851 Castelmorrone, Caserta Italy Domenico Bernardo, she 
age 28, b 1823? Maybe, b/c for her birthdate I'm using the date shown as the marriage date for her and 
Giuseppe (which it  cannot be [the record showing marriage between Maria Giuseppa Prata and Giuseppe 
Nicola Zona as 17 May 1816 also shows HIS birthdate as 6 Dec 1813, so the marriage date is a typo but 
not a reversal as it can't be 1861; perhaps it is 1841?]). So possibly she b 1823 and m young and then 
Giuseppe died? If so, this Maria Giuseppe Prata is dtr of Vincenzo Prata and Catarina Cappiello, and she 
was born in Morrone, Caserta, Italy, and on 11 Jun 1843 she married Giovanni Iulianiello (which suggests 
that Giuseppe Zona died before or just after Clementina was born).
 There also is an Anna Prata, who m Domenico Bernardo on 6 Nov 1831, she age 25, born in Morrone, dtr of 
Domenico Prata and Antonia Altieri, Could she be a sister of Vincenzo Prata? No, because his parents are 
different people, see below
Vincenzo Prata, son of Pascale Prata and Giovanna Caruso, m 7 Dec 1817 Castelmorrone, Caserta, italy, 
age 24, to Catarina Maddalena Raffaele Cappiello, age 21. SO.... Maria Giuseppe NOT born in 1816, but in 
1823. That means the marriage date of 17 May 1816 must be something else... 17 May 1841?
Catarina is the dtr of Giovanni Antonio Cappiello and Maria Rossatta.

See notes under Giuseppe, where in his death cert she is listed as Maria Giuseppa. Yet marr cert of their 
dtr and her birth cert shows her as Luisa. Clearly she is the same person. Why the name change? I she 
Maria Giuseppa Prata? No, as this Maria Giusappa is the dtr of Marco Denza and Anna Brancaccio (see 
above). Did Luisa die and Giuseppe married her sister?
and on her death cert husband is shown as Giuseppe Dizone.
Note, on Clementina birth cert, Luisa shown as 32 (b 1811), but age of Maria Giuseppa is 69, which  means 
born 1808.
In 1872, in marr cert of Nicola Zona, brother of Clementina, both Giuseppe Zona and Luisa Denza are shown 
as alive. And Luisa's occupation is the same as Maria Giuseppa's occupation (seamstress). And she is 
living in the same street (v. Marzano) as given in other records.
