Hi Kristy, My great grandmother is the Anna Barbaresi you mentioned (Pierina's sister), she married Frank Bevilacqua and lived in Springfield. Her daughter, Mary was my grandmother. I'm finding the whole clan rather confusing as it appears there were several Barbaresis, Bevilacquas and Contes who intermarried and travelled back and forth from Italy for years. I did not know about the other siblings you mentioned.......
My grandmother was Enrika (or Ricetta) Barbaresi, another one of the sisters to Anna and Pierina. Enricka also married a Bevilacqua, Natale, and lived in Clinton, MA. I have visited Castelleone, Italy and met an Italian cousin, but have not yet found out much about the Bevilacqua side of the family and whether they also came from that region of Italy or not. Also wondering if Frank (Francesco) and Natale may have been brothers?
I'm new to this search, but interested in finding any information on our families.
I did MUCH research and found a whole lot of info from my cousin Donna & sister Pat who have been to Casteleone Italy to see relatives. I want to go! Pierina (Barbaresi) Lamberto was my Nonna who lived on Fitch Rd Clinton MA. She Married Mario lamberto. My Mom was her oldest Nicolina, then Domenic, Nunzio, Mary, Rose and petrina... Only Mary and petrina and Domenic's wife Betty are left now.
