I believe you are correct!
Casagiove is 3 miles from Santa Maria Capua Vetere.
I have Anna Scialla as my GGM. I have not found the matrimoni record yet, so my knowledge of her is very limited. I have found Scialla's in my research in S.M.C.V. and S.M. La Fossa with hopes of linking them someday. It does not seem to be a common name in S.M.
If you have Scialla's, we must talk. Hers is the only name I have made no known progress in my research.
My best guess is she was married in the early 1880's. I have birth acts in 1884, 1886, & 1889. She has been my mystery person. If she was from Casagiove, that might explain why I have not made any progress.
You have ignited a spark for me.
