My great (2) grandmother, Francesca (Fontana) LoGrasso, wife of Gasparre LoGrasso of Sferracavallo, m. 22 September 1872.
My great (3) grandparents: Antonino Fontana married Grazia Pagano in 20 September 1835 at San Cristina Gela, Sicily. He was the son of Stefano and Rosa (Messina) Fontana. Her parents appear to be Pietro Pagano and Teresa (Lynch) Pagano. Not absolutely certain. Name shown as Linch and Lync'hi.
My grandmother, who was born in Sicily, used to say that she had some Irish ancestry. I believe this Teresa (Lynch) Pagano could be an Irish ancestor.
Where would I go to find the parents of Teresa (Lynch) Pagano? I know that some Lynch families from Galway, Ireland settled in Southern France. They were involved in the wine trade. On line I found reference to a Lynchi or Linchi family of Magenta, Italy that derive from an Edward Lynch who came from Galway to Italy around 1800. No further information found.
