Astuto from Sicily

Postby astutoyankee » 15 Oct 2015, 04:27

Hello, my name is Jesse Astuto.

I am searching for info on a Dominic Astuto, my 2nd great grandfather, born in San Piero Pati, Sicily 1 mar 1852. He was married to a Concetta DiDio born about 1859 in Sicily i believe.
Dominic and Concetta had 2 daughters and a son who immigrated to USA about 1912. I believe the 2 daughters came first, and the son, my great grandfather came later in 1912.
The daughters are Francesca Astuto (unmarried?) (1889-1962) and Angeline Astuto (1890-1962) married to Rosario Grosso (1890-1959).
The son is Guiseppe Jospeh Astuto (1892-1972) who married Lillian Dawn Jacquin (1893-1977) and these are my great grandparents. My grandfather is Rudolfo Guglielmino Astuto.

Any info on the Astuto family would help, i believe they are from Sicily and have been for awhile. Thank you for reading this and have a great day/evening morning/night all the time :)
