The Cavallo family of Provincia d'Aquila, regione d'Abruzzo

Postby JTsr » 27 Feb 2012, 23:28

I am also curious about my maternal line. My maternal grandparents were named Pietro and Rocchetta (DiSimona) Cavallo. I know very little about them, as they both died before I was born. According to her obituary which has been saved, my grandmother was born in Pratola Peligna in 1881, one of at least seven children. My grandfather was born in 1877 or 1878, but I don't know in what comune.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Thank you, Suanj. Is there a way for us to find out anything about the parents of Pietro or of Rochetta?

Rocchetta father was Donato DE SIMONE; that is sure...
abt the parents, by LDS microfilms, the Pratola Peligna civil records are:
Registri dello stato civile di Pratola Peligna (L'Aquila), 1809-1865 Pratola Peligna (L'Aquila). Ufficio dello stato civile
https://www.familysearch.org/eng/librar ... +Pratola+P &columns=*,0,0

so until 1865...
for to find the parent's names, it is necessary the Pietro and Rocchetta marriage act...

Pietro and Rochetta were clearly from Pratola Peligna. Is there any information to be found about their ancestors? Rose's obituary (http://search.ancestry.com/browse/view. ... PLz0q3dpid) states the she left behind six siblings in Pratola Peligna when she emigrated.
