Gallo's from Monteforte Irpino

Postby pggallo » 02 Dec 2007, 02:33

I am searching for Gallo's from Monteforte Irpino. My grandfather Pasquale Gallo was born there. His brother Padre Antonio Vincenzo Gallo was made a venerable saint in 1990. Here's the information I have:

Father: Antonio Gallo b. 27 Feb 1864 d. 6 Apr 1909
Mother: Angela Piciocchi b. 19 Sep 1866 d. 7 Nov 1928

Children:

Lucia Gallo b. 13 Dec 1888 d. Feb 1983
Pasquale Gallo b. 3 Aug. 1890 d. 19 Nov 1974
David Gallo b. 18 Jan 1897 d. Jun 1972
Antonio Vincenzo Gallo b. 11 Jan 1899 d. 2 May 1934
Mario Gallo
Ernesto Gallo
Unknown Gallo
Unknown Gallo

All were born in Monteforte Irpino
Lucia, Pasquale, David, Mario and Ernesto all emigrated to the USA and lived in New York until there deaths. Two other children, names unknown, emigrated to Argentina.

Antonio Vincenzo is a venerable saint. Here are two links I have with more information about his life.

Padre Antonio Gallo's story being on the history page of Monteforte Irpino's main web site seems significant and seems like a good starting point but I don't know how to contact anyone there.

I am also currently planning a trip to Monteforte Irpino with my sister in 2008. Any assistance or advice on how to find and get in touch with relatives in the region would be greatly appreciated.

P. Giovanni,

Hi my name is Eric Kraus. My mother, along with much of my family were born in Monteforte Irpino and they came to PA/DE in 1958. The family names that I know of are Ferrara, Fusco, DeSomma, & DeFazio but I know there is a Gallo connection.

I remember my mother saying we have family that are Gallo's. We also have family from Italy that settled in Brooklyn and family members that relocated to Argentina at some point.

I'll check with mom and see what she knows of the Gallo connection. Hopefully I can find something that will be helpful to you for your trip, etc.

Best,

Eric

I'm sorry to answer so late. My maternal grandmother was (Maria) Antonetta Gallo from Monteforte Irpino. She was a first cousin of Anthony Vincent Gallo. I was born in Brooklyn & live on Long Island. I also know that we are related to the Stromollo family.

P. Giovanni

Sorry I do not have any information on Gallo's from Monteforte Irpino but we could be related. My great grand father was Angelantonio Piciocchi born in Monteforte Irpino in 1848 and married in 1883 to Annunciata (not sure of last name). He died in NYC USA in 1904. Angelantonio father was Carmine Piciocchi born in Monteforte Irpino.

Do you have any additional information on your great grandmother Angela Piciocchi b. 19 Sep 1866 d. 7 Nov 1928?

Thanks for any help you can provide

I have gathered additional information about the Gallo's of Monteforte Irpino, Italy
The 2 brothers that emigrated to Argentina were Concencio and Francesco.
I have been in contact with the granddaughter of Francesco, Karina Gallo who is an artist and now lives in Mexico City, Mexico.

I have also made contact with Marco Ruggiero who still resides in Monteforte Irpino. His great grandfather, Giuseppe, was brother to Antonio Gallo, my great grandfather. They had another brother Onofrio but I have no additional information about him.
So, Marco and his relatives/descendants of Giuseppe are the only Gallo's living in Monteforte Irpino.

I have confirmed that there are no living descendants of my great grandfather Antonio Gallo in Italy.
Antonio and Angela had 9 children.
Lucia, Pasquale, Ernesto and David emigrated to USA
Francesco and Concencio emigrated to Argentina
Mario and Vincenzo were both Vatican priests and so had no children.
The 9th child, whose name I have not been able to determine, died at infancy or early childhood according to my mother.
So, there are no living descendants of Antonio and Angela in Italy. Our Gallo relatives there are descendants of Antonio's brothers.
