ruffo, Troglia, Davito family names

Postby mjruffus » 09 Apr 2013, 04:23

I am trying to finish my deceased father’s effort to find his true family surname. His grandfather, Antonio (Anton) Ruffus immigrated to the United States around 1900 where he first settled in the Italian community of Coal City Illinois SW of the city of Chicago.
His name in early hand written documents in the United States appeared to be spelled either Roffo or Ruffo.
Oral family history is that he did not know the name of his father (possibly a nobleman) but the surname of his mother was Davito. Oral Family also has Antonio being raised in an orphanage. He may have been born in the village of Rocca Canavese just north of Torino.
His wife’s parents also immigrated from the same area of Italy, possibly Corio, around 1980 or 1990. In the United States the name was spelled Trolia but I believe it was spelled Troglia in Italy.
If the names of Ruffo, or Troglia, or Davito exist in your family history I would very much like to hear from you by email.

My wife and I have been to Italy several times on holiday and in September 2013 we hope to spend part of our holiday in the area around Corio and Rocca Canavese.

If we still have family living in that area of course we love to meet them during our visit to Italy.
Sto cercando di finire il lavoro di mio padre defunto per trovare il suo cognome vera famiglia. Suo nonno, Antonio (Anton) Ruffus emigrato negli Stati Uniti intorno al 1900, dove si insediarono nella comunità italiana di Coal City dell'Illinois SW della città di Chicago.
Il suo nome nei documenti scritti a mano i primi negli Stati Uniti sembrava essere scritto sia Roffo o Ruffo.
Storia di famiglia orale è che lui non conosceva il nome di suo padre (forse un nobile), ma il cognome di sua madre era Davito. Famiglia orale ha anche Antonio di essere cresciuto in un orfanotrofio. Egli può essere nato nel villaggio di Rocca Canavese, a nord di Torino.
Genitori di sua moglie anche immigrati dalla stessa zona d'Italia, forse Corio, intorno al 1980 o 1990. Negli Stati Uniti il nome è stato scritto, ma Trolia Credo che sia stato scritto Troglia in Italia.
Se i nomi dei Ruffo, o Troglia, o Davito esiste nella storia della tua famiglia mi piacerebbe molto sentire da voi via e-mail.
Mia moglie ed io sono stato in Italia diverse volte in vacanza e nel settembre 2013 ci auguriamo di trascorrere parte della nostra vacanza nella zona di Corio e Rocca Canavese.

Se abbiamo ancora famiglia che vive in quella zona, naturalmente, ci piace loro incontro durante la nostra visita in Italia.
