Russomando family of Caposele

Postby maxwelln » 01 Dec 2014, 01:48

On behalf of my son-in-law I am endeavouring to find out more about his Italian roots particularly, Pasquale Russomando believed to have been born 1824, Caposele. According to records I have Pasquale was Knighted by the Crown of Italy in 1872 for his Public service and had a brother Doctor Raffaele Russomando 1820-1890. Raffaele is believed to have married a Mickeline (or Micheline De Rogatis) and had at least one son Lorenzo born 1843 a teacher who immigrated to the USA 1890 on board " Burgandia" with Adelina aged 16, said to be his daughter. It is believed that he had married an Adelia Benincasa (1860-1938). Other children who arrived in the USA subsequently were Livia b 1884 and Gerardo b 1889.

Any information on the family would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Maxwelln
