Rini Information

Today I received a PDF document, Descendants of Matteo Rini from Terri Dance, who is researching her Rini ancestry. She was responding to a post I had placed in the forum at Genealogy.com several years ago. I was able to fill a few blanks I’d had in my Rini information and add some new information as well. The document takes the Rini ancestry back to Matteo Rini, born about 1722 in Termini Imerese, Palermo, Sicily.

Ohio Deaths on Ancestry.com shows that Uncle Nate died in a hospital in Lake County so now I’m curious as to which one. Painesville, Willoughby, or Madison? I’m thinking it was probably the Painesville hospital but I’d have to confirm it somehow.

  1. I found Uncle Nate’s obituary from the Painesville Telegraph when I visited the Morely Library back in September. According to the obituary, he died at Dr. Mile’s office in Madison.

  2. Nate Rini was pronounced dead at a hospital in Madison.

  3. I just read the previous comment. Hmmmm. . . . I am thinking it is correct. Sorry. I had the story wrong.


  4. Donna sent me the following in an email: “I was reading your info. You said you wanted to know where Nate Rini passed away. It was the hospital in Madison. Gertrude Quayle drove him and my grandmother (Martha) to the hospital after he had a heart attack. In reality, he passed away in her car.”

    I was going by what I’d found in the Ohio Death Certificate index on Ancestry.com and what I found in his obituary. Obituaries aren’t always accurate.

    That he had a heart attack at home and died on the way to the hospital is very credible considering the distance between his home and the nearest hospital. It might have taken 20-30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive at the house.
