Hello Denice and Welcome to the Forum!
We'll all be happy to see what we can do to help.

Have you placed your grandparents on any census records?
The census may help zero in on a marriage location.

A quick check of ancestry .com only came up with one Vito & Carmella Mastronardi, but it was in Broome County NY in 1930.

Thanks! Valarie

Can you provide dates of birth for either grandparent? Names of children and their dates of birth....this will help track any available records and identify the correct family. In what city/state was the death certificate issued?

I think you’ve found Vito’s sister Pasqua :D
http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html

Mr. Rotondo married Pasqua Mastronardo
She died in February.
Rotondo was employed by Utica Knitting ...
...leaves a daughter. Marie Rotondo of Utica and a son


This may help Denice determine if this is her family,
a 2003 obituary from GenealogyBank:

Quote::
Press & Sun-Bulletin (Binghamton, NY) - July 17, 2003
Deceased Name: Guido D. Mastronardi
, went to be with the Lord, July 5, 2003, after a bout with cancer. He was predeceased by his parents, Vito and Carmella Mastronardi; brother and sister-in-law, John and Hazel Mastronardi; sister, Seballa Rogers; and brother, Frank Mastronardi. He is survived by his son, John; grandson, Carson of Fresno, Calif.; sisters, Angelina Farneti, and Rita Sejan; brothers, Vincent, Julio, Vito and Victor Mastronardi; along with many nieces and nephews. Guido Mastronardi was born, raised and schooled in Binghamton. He migrated to California where he received a degree in metallurgy and was very interested in the space program. He owned and operated a restaurant in Santa Rosa for many years. At his request, his cremains will be spread in the Southern Tier at the places he loved at the convenience of the family.

You all have been absolutely wonderful, I am thrilled to hear from all of you. Some of this information I have like the 1930 census, I also have him in 1920 alone. I don't have anything on his marriage in ohio, pa, ny. He was married to Carmella, my grandmthr, she used to say she had a step brother in Sharon,PA she stayed with and he worked for Brier Hill, so it would seem to be ohio or pa.Can't you get marriage from the State Dept of the two states, I don't know what county and it could be any county. let me know

Thank you all again, you great!!!!!

Denice,
Thank you for the update!
Could you tell us where Vito was living on the 1920 census that you have?
If Carmella can be found in the same area it may be a clue as to where to find their marriage record.
Thanks! Valarie

Denice,

Question, do these records that Laura found belong to your family?

- Paula Pasqualicchia Mastronardo was Vito Mastronardi’s mother?

- Antonio Vito and Pasqua (Mastronardi) Rotondo were Vito’s brother and sister?

Thanks! Valarie

2/11/11. My mother Elizabeth (Mastronardi) Martin's (age 88) mother is Dominica Mastronardi (married to Giuseppe Mastronardi); from Bari Italy and came to America around 1914 . Dominica's brother is Vito Mastronardi. My mother's brothers and sisters all live around the Binghamton NY area (and Endicott NY). My cousin Angelo is searching our family history.
