tracing Great Grandmother Concetta Tortoriello

Postby keith » 24 Apr 2016, 22:23

Need help trying to identify maiden name and original Italian hometown of my Great Grandmother whose married name was Concetta Tortoriello. She was married to Christopharo Tortoriello who naturalized on 10 October 1888. Eventually they lived together in the Chicago area.

If these are the correct parents in the following link, then the town name could be a misspelling of the town of Ricigliano, in Salerno Province, Campania Region

I am thinking that this could be your great grandfather.

Turturiello Cristoforo di Onofrio e Vernieri Giacomina nato il 9/2/1863 a Ricigliano di professione Contadino

*Christopher and Concetta's oldest son on the 1900 census was an Onofrio. I also believe that the following is a link to the census with his parents in the 1900 census, in case you don't have this info

Concetta Avallone's parents were Aniello (called Daniel) Avallone and Rosa Serritella. Concetta had brothers named Domenico and Angiolo. Domenico Avallone married a Rosa Tortoriello who was a sister to your great grandfather Cristofaro.

These should be brothers of Concetta Avallone. Domenico was married to Cristofaro's sister Rosa

Cristofaro and Concetta's son Onofrio was born in Ricigliano and not in Chicago. So the couple may have married there and not in the U.S.
