Searching for family info Molfetta/Gagliardi

Postby darkorchidz » 07 May 2006, 03:27

Well I had it all wrong would seem. So thank you to everyone so far who has tried helping. Called mom n pleaded for help, lied n said it was for a school paper. :(
This is what I know now...........

My Nana was Rosirea Molfetta Born in Hoboken NJ, Nov 30th either 1917 or 18. Was the 17th child out of 18 that lived.

Her mother was Prudencia Balestra, born in Bari Italy. Her family were farmers. She married when she was 13ish. Moved here shortly there after. They bought property in what is now Flushing Meadows, Queens, NY. She never learned English.

Francisco Molfetta was her husband. He did learn English, had a nice business going I guess. Stayed farmers over here, goats, chickens, apples etc, sold ice to people.


What my mom said about her father:

Angelo Michael or Michele Angelo Gagliardi . Thinks he was born around January 1st. Was a mason n made Jewerly. He was either 18 or 28 years older than my nana. Had been married n granted a divorce priar to nana, to a woman named Sadie on the grounds she was barren n could not have children. Mom said he was Born in Italy, she believes Naples. He died in a veterans Hopsital when she was 2. Was in world war 2, US Army.

His father was Alberto or Albert Gagliardi

Working on finding my aunt who might have more info as well.
