Patsy / Piazzetta

Postby jpatsy » 11 Jul 2009, 14:01

Hi, I'm looking for my info on my paternal great-grandfather. He and his family are in the 1920 and 1930 census. Their info on the censes:

William Patsy (born abt 1870)
Katherine Gentile Patsy (born about 1882)
John Patsy (born abt 1899)

plus other children. But I wanted to list these because apparently they all arrived in the country in 1900 before the rest of the children were born. I can't find any info on them immigrating. I was told by family members that their names were Americanized and that originally the last name Piazzetta.

Any help would be appreciated.
