Looking for information on the Calletta family

Postby LDallago » 14 Jan 2011, 02:55

I am looking for any information on the Calletta Family. They came to the U.S from Sicily and settled in Hammonton, New Jersey. I have found 1920 and 1930 Census and Social Security records for Nien and Frank, but not their other brothers. I also found Nien's WWI and II draft cards. I know the brothers were in the glass making industry. I am unable to find any information on their parents, grandparents etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

grandfather - Richard Calletta
his siblings: Jeanette, John and Marie

grandfather's father - Nien (aka: Anthony) (Born: 12 Jun 1888 in Bordonaro, Messina, Sicily) (Married: Jennie Rigolizzo) (Death: July 1974 in Hammonton, NJ)
his siblings: Frank(Birth: abt 1892), William and Dominic

Hi
I'm from Montréal, Canada (sorry for english, my first language is french). I'm sure there is a link between your family and mine. My great great grand father Carmelo Galletti was born in Sicily in 1877. He arrived in NY in 1904, fallowed by his wife Fortunata Laguidara 2 years later. They came in Montréal and had 3 boys, Louis, Giusseppe and my great grand-father Frank Calletta. Sometime, i saw Galletta in some papers. Has you can figure, for us, the name Calletta come from the name Galletti. The mystery is still why the name changed...

hope to find the reason one day. I don't think it's just the fact we was not able to write ou read.

Thanks!

Marie Calletta
Montréal
