in the next house were living John Nigro (age 60) and Mary Nigro (age 60).... maybe his parents?

or this one:

This is the town they were from:

Castelfranci town (comune) in the province of Avellino, Campania, Italy.

Castelfranco is another town... (Castelfranco Veneto, Castelfranco Emilia, Castelfranco di Sopra, Castelfranco di Sotto) in others regions....
