Consalvo family in Francavill di Sicily (Messina area)

Postby nudnik » 22 Oct 2008, 19:14

I am looking for information on the CONSALVO family who came to Pennsylvania USA in 1906 & 1913. There were 5 Brothers.

The 4 of the brothers were Michele, Francesco, Carmelo, & Joseph.

I understand Michele. He married Verna Russo (born in 1875). He returned to Francavilla at some point & bought up the family farms in Francavilla & was alive into the 1950's.

Francesco was born in 1862 & married Francesca DeStefano.

Does any of this look familiar to anyone out there?

thanks
ralph

Hi Valarie.

I am still working on the USA Consalvo family. I know there is a large group in Philadelphia. I have to send for some obituaries from Altoona before i can work them in.

Do you have any information?

I am waiting for the Mormon Library to get in a couple of microfilm rolls I ordered, so i can work on Francavilla a little.

thanks for any help

Hi Ralph,

I was browsing the web when I found your post. I don't know if you will see this because it has been two years since you wrote this, but my great-grandmother was Verna Russo. She lived in Altoona, Pa. Her son Anthony Consalvo was my grandfather. They were all from Francavilla di Sicilia. If you see this please contact me. I would be glad to share info with you.

Michelle
