I have the next info about Donnantuoni from Rofrano:

Raffaele Donnantuoni born in Rofrano 1829, son of 'Pietro Antonio' or 'Paolo Antonio' (difficult to read) and Angela 'Del Garzo' or 'Longarzo' (difficult to read).

Raffaele married twice:
- 1856-08-23 to Catarina Rubano (b.1834 in Valle dell'angelo), daughter of Candeloro & Angela Salerno
- 1862-12-20 to Maria Antonia (b.1842 in Valle dell'Angelo), daughter of Carmine & Eufremia Valiante

Both marriages took place in Valle dell'Angelo about 20Km from Rofrano and I have a copy of the original records if you are interested.

Peter,

My family comes from Rofrano, too. My great-great grandmother was named Maria Donnantuoni, and she married Antonio Caruso. My great-grandmother, Anna Maria Caruso, was born in Rofrano in 1883. I'm looking for more information about my family as well, since I don't know when Maria Donnantuoni was born. It would be great to find out if my ancestors are related to yours! I'll keep you posted if I find out anything else. Good luck with your research!

Hi Peter,

My parents are from Rofrano and immigrated to Australia in '67. My mother is a Donnantuoni. But my uncle [married to my dad's sister] is also a Donnantuoni from Rofrano but are not related. Although not a common name in Rofrano there are a few factions.

I remember my uncle's father who was Compare Pasquale [Donnantuoni] and he would have been born around the 1890's. I will ask my mum and get back to you on the history.

We also have relatives who are still in Rofrano, I will get them to look at the townhall records and report back.

Good luck and we may be distant cousins...
