Pangallo

Postby scpangallo » 09 Dec 2006, 00:30

I do not have a whole lot of information on my great grandparents but this is what I do know:

Great Grandmother Carmella Stellatano Pangallo
From Florence (I am told)
Traveled to America when 12 (I think)
Had 16 children
Died (I believe) in 1987
Settled in Newport, KY
Lived on Amelia Street.

Married into Pangallo family
I do not know much about my Great Grandfather except that I am told he came to America when 16 and was from Reggio di Calabria. I believe he came with a brother but I do not know about that for sure.
He died before I was born so I was hoping to find information about both through my great grandma. If anyone can help me find out where in Calabria either or both were from and if any Pangallos are still there I would really appreciate it. I will be in Italy next week and was hoping to make the trip with some more knowledge of my family's origin. Thank you for anything you can help me with.

Mary abt 1897 Ohio Wife
Dominick abt 1912 Ohio Son
Tony abt 1914 Ohio Son
Eleanora abt 1917 Ohio Daughter

These are the various spellings of the surname specific to Reggio Calabria:

STELITANO

STELLITTANO

STELLITANO

The comunes where these names are found are to numerous to mention,
but at least we know that the above are the correct spellings.
