Cotellessa and Fidella/Fedella of Lanciano, Cheiti, Italy

Postby Leathab » 19 Apr 2008, 20:06

Am helping a friend do her family tree.
They contain Nicola Cotellessa and Anna Fidella/Fedella of Lanciano, Cheiti, Italy. They migrated separately to America, via Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, their naturalization applications and funeral cards told of their being from this area.

We were able to send for her grandfather Nicola Cotellssa's birth ceritificate in Lanciano, Chieuti, Italy:
Birth Certificate,
Nicola Cotellessa, Lanciano, Cheiti, Italy, 22 May 1880, parents Camillo
Cotellessa/Luisa Valentini. Civil Registrar of Lanciano, Italia. #66034

But have been unable to receive the marriage of his parents and continue on back for at least another few years

Nicola Cotellessa was married in America:
Marriage License, New Castle, Lawrence Co. Pa. 3819, 12 Mar 1906, Nicola
born 25 Mar 1880, and Anna Fidella or Fedella b. 25 Sep 1879.
Nicola Cotellessa died 7 Oct 1940, New Castle, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, buried with his wife in St. Vitas Catholic Church cemetery, in New Castle, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania.

Anna Fidella/Fedella
According to her obituary card:
born 25 Sep 1879 Lanciano, Chieuti, Italy,
died 28 Oct 1944, New Castle, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania

(We have not been able to send for her birth certificate, her parents were
listed as Napoleone Fedele/Camilla Rosato.

If anyone has any information on these two people and their parents in Lanciano, Chieuti, Italy, it would help so much.
