I am searching for information on the Pacchetti and Franceschelli families from Frontone, Italy. Pietro Pacchetti was born 1878 and Adella (Adele) Franceschelli was born 1888. I am looking for names of parents, grandparents and siblings. Also, I would like to know when they were married. They emmigrated to the USA in 1907. Adella was 19. Pietro was 29. The only thing I have found so far was a man named Vincenzo Pacchetti who was a city councilman in 1818, but I do not know if he is related. Does anyone have information?

Besides their ship manifest, do you have their US records?
Their 1930 census record should have a marriage year.
If they were born/married in Frontone, you could write to their comune for their records.
For reference purposes, here is the manifest for Pietro and Adele Pacchetti arriving 1907 NY.
He is leaving father Giuseppe in Frontone, and she is leaving mother Gentile Franceschetti in Frontone
They were going to his brother Domenico in Scranton, PA.
Also states that Pietro had been in USA before in 1902 and 1905.
