For starters you may wish to peripherally read about Minturno at http://www.italianside.com/lazio/latina ... /genelaogy and just type in Minturno. Also enclosed is a biography of a Nicola-Cossuto at http://www.ancientfaces.com/person/nico ... /165365162 Any of us here can assist you further. Peter

I have traced almost every Cossuto that came into USA in the early part of the century. My quest stops at Italy. I have Birthdays and possible towns. My biggest question is who my Great Grandfather X2 is. What he did up until he came to US and who his siblings are. With Sibling information I could tie every Cossuto together on this side.

Tomasso Cossuto was born on 3/25/1860 in Caserta, Italy. He married Filomena Saltarelli sometime in 1897. He came to the US on 5/10/1908.

He had seven children all in Italy.

Vittoria - 5/13/1886
Giuseppe - 9/10/1887 - My Great Grandfather
Antoinette - 1/18/1889
Maria Grazia - 1891
Giovanna - 2/12/1894
Salvatore - 7/16/1895
Filippo - 12/16/1897

Additionally I found a document with his name and possible murder charge. Interested in finding out more about this. I've attached a link to it. Look at page 30.
