My grandmother was from Roccavivi. Her birth name was Matilda Silveri. Her first husband was Raffaele Dellegrotti (or Dellegrotto). Her second husband was Gabriel Pennese (from Abruzzi). She had a sister named Teresa Silveri. She married a man by the name of Giuseppe Defelice. He was born approximately 1880 and Teresa was born approximately 1888. When they came to the US, they lived in Berwick, PA (Columbia County). They had 5 children who are all deceased. My dad, who was their first cousin, recently passed away. He was the last survivor of the Silveri descendants. I was reading the posts referring to a Giuseppe Defelice from Roccavivi and wondered if they were related. Are there any Silveri family descendants remaining in Roccavivi?
