My grandfather left Pisticci for America in 1902. He married my grandmother in 1903 in NY. She was from Craco. We have everything on her family dating back to 1811. We are not having much luck with my grandfather & uncle.

We know for sure poppa was born in Pisticci 3/12/1879 and my uncle was born on 5/11/1904 in Pisticci. We think my uncle was about 16 when he came to the states.

Which US state did the family immigrate to?
Can you provide Giovanni's wifes name? Known children?

Giovanni Salerno enter NYC as did Leonardo Pierro. Different years. They were both single went they arrived here.

Leonardo Pierro married Antonia Mormando in NYC in 1903. They filed a marriage certificate in Craco in 1904.

Giovanni Salerno married Maria Pierro my aunt, daughter of Leonardo & Antonia Pierro. I'm not sure of the wedding date but I can call my cousin to ask her.
