Antonio CERINI (II)2 (~1681-1744)

December 201312. Antonio Cerini (II)2 was born about 1681, likely in Giumaglio, Ticino, Switzerland. He married Giovanna Maria "Maria" Pozzi by 1709 and had three children:[Cen 1741]

121. Giovanni Antonio Cerini (III)3 30 Oct 1712 22 Jul 1758 (45)
122. Maria Domenica Catterina Cerini 10 May 1714 17 Nov 1753 (39)
123. Giovanna Maria Cerini 2 Sep 1721 29 (Jul) 1774 (52)

Unlike his father and his descendants, only two records, the parish censuses of 1702 and 1709, name him in full as "Giovanni Antonio" ("Joannes Antonius"). All other records, name him only as "Antonio."

Antonio's father died sometime between 1698 and 1702, after which Antonio became head of the household. His elder sister Margherita Apollonia, younger half-sister Giacomina, and widowed stepmother Giovanna lived with him.[Cen 1702-1703] Over the next six years, his elder sister apparently moved out and his stepmother likely died. He married Maria and afterward his half-sister Giacomina continued to live with them.[Cen 1709]

In 1741, the household included son Antonio's wife and two children.[Cen 1741]

Antonio Cerini died at his home in Giumaglio on September 13, 1744. He was buried the following day in the cemetery of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta.[Dth 1744] Antonio was about 63 years old.

Giovanna Maria (Pozzi) Cerini died three years later on January 19, 1748, at her home in Giumaglio, following a week's-long illness. She was buried the following day in the cemetery of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta. Maria was in recorded to have been "about 69 years old."[Dth 1748]
