Ippolito Catalano & Domenica Alecsi

Postby delliott7756 » 13 Jun 2012, 02:19

I am trying to find more on my great grandparents, Ippolito Catalano & Domenica Alesci. They came to America around 1892 via Italy. I have been told they were from the Bisacquino area of Sicily/Italy. They had a son named Joseph that was born in Italy in 1891 + or - a couple of years. They had a couple more children once they arived in America, one being my grandmother Josephine. Domenica I think had a sister named Rosa. Ippolito used to be called Paolo for short, not sure if he had any brothers. Ippolito died young in America around 1903 or so. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Deb
