Guadagni, DiMaio & Avello

Postby mousie206 » 30 Jun 2004, 17:19

Agnese Avello (b. 1843) married Nicholas Guadagni. I believe they were from Florence. Nicholas was magistrate to the king but lost all his money gambling. I know of 2 daughters one was Judith. Judith went to work in a high fashion store in Naples as a millner to help support the family.

Judith came to Brooklyn in 1906. The ship's log states Agnese came at the same time but we think this might have been the sister posing as Agnese b/c 2 women wouldn't have been allowed to travel alone.

Judith (b.1874) married Anthony DiMaio (b. July 2, 1886) who was from Naples and supposedly on the same ship. Anthony was a barber in the Waldorf Astoria in NY and then a real estate agent.

Judith's sister married and had a daughter named Tess who married a Valenti and they had a daughter named Henrietta who married and divorced Joe Torre's son (of the NY Yankees).

Any info on anyone mentioned would be appreciated. Or how to contact Henrietta.

If you do not have any idea where Henrietta is located why not try contacting Joe Torre at Yankee stadium and/or the NY Yankees who are lkisted int he telephone book. Peter
