Buonafede family name

Postby Vito69 » 15 Nov 2013, 00:27

My grand father was Rosario Buonafede from Paterno, Sicily. He was married to Josephine (Alfia) Sambataro. Rosario was born 6 Oct 1894, Josephine was born 20 Feb 1897. They were married 15 Nov 1919. I am looking for any background material on either one of these people. Thanks!

This is the birth act of Rosario Bonafede from Paternò:

The birth date you had was not correct, as you, or someone for you, read it in a USA notation. In fact, 10/6 in Italian notation is June 10th. So, I think this is your Rosario.
Rosario's parents were Mario, 29 years, miller, and Carmela Greco.
The notation states he married Alfia (maybe this was Josephine's original name) Sambataro on November 19th, 1917
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi

Your info about their marriage was correct; there was an error in the annotation. Here is their marriage act:

Alfia was the daughter of Salvatore and Carmela Cifalini (?)
Rosario's father had died by the time of marriage.
