Looking for Delli Gatti Family from Nusco, Italy

Postby emilie » 07 Sep 2010, 06:49

My great grandfather, Harry Delli Gatti, immigrated to America from Italy sometime in the mid 1800's. He ended up in Fairmont, WV & married a woman named Columbia Jane Stevens. Harry died when his oldest son, my grandfather, was only 9 years old, so we have no information about the Delli Gatti family. All family members who could have known anything are now dead. Can anyone help me??

Thank you so much for the information you found for me. :D I am not sure if John was Harry's brother or not, but this is certainly a start for me. Finding the marriage certificate of Harry & Columbia & seeing that Harry was born in Avellino gives me an area of Italy to start with. Can you give me any pointers on how I should go about acquiring information from Italy?? I am very new at this & really don't know what to do. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. :)

Valerie, thanks so very much for the information you have come up with for me. I know the information on Harry is correct because the children are the right names ...my grandfather was Alvia J....the oldest son. And I know they lived on Spence Street in Fairmont. I am going to see what I can do about finding out about my great-grandfather, where he came from & who some of his family might have been. It has always bothered me that no one in our family has ever known anything about this man :( ...even his own children who are long since deceased. I want to be able to pass on to the next generations what I have been able to find...if I am lucky enough to find anything. Thanks again for helping me. :D

If you find information on your great grandfather, let me know. I have a lot of data on Nusco. I did fine Giovanni andCatarina Bocchino, and 3 children, Alfonso born 1894, Angela Maria born and died in 1896 and Vincenzo born in 1897. Let me know as much as you can find.
