Cavatto family

Postby Berean50 » 07 Aug 2014, 19:00

Hi,

Does anyone have any information or is related to the Cavatto (could be Covatto) family from Casacalenda? Francesco Cavatto was married to Margarita Porte. Their son Luigi came to Canada in the early 1900's. He married Evelina Marie Olivina Angelina Patenaud. Once in Canada his name was changed to Calouette.

Any information would be appreciated.

You know the earlier Covatto family Gennaro Covatto comes from Limosano which is about 32 km from Casacalenda that's probally where they originated

The1822 May 23 birth record of Francesco Covatta says he was baptized on the same day in the church of Santa Maria Maggiore,Casacalenda address Via Terra Vecchia #4 so I would go there and check that out

Hi folks,

Just to let you know that I was able to go to Casacalenda and Limosano and was helped out by a very nice policeman by the name of Carmine Gioia (Casacalenda) and also Loretta Gianetti, from Montreal and originally from Casacalena, who served as an interpreter.

In Limosano I wasn't able to see the archives as there was a feast of Mary in a nearby village and therefore the priest wasn't present at the time. So essentially from Luigi Covatta and his wife Maria Antonia Carbone and their ascendants is still a mystery for me.
I was able to visit the local cemetery with a city employee and also met some far away cousins in the little town.

So if any of you have some other information regarding this Covatta lineage or their family nickname (there are lots of Covatta branches apparently), it would be appreciated.

Thanks again for your assistance. Ciao!
Robert Germain
