Nicastro: Caruso or Montisanti Family

Postby RichardFJCaruso » 13 Jan 2011, 05:59

My grandfather, Joseph Caruso, born 08 Dec 1891. He came to the United States when he was around 8 years old. He said he lived in Nicastro. We were told his real last name was something like Montesanti and that his father had a castle with alot of land, mostly olives and grape vineyards. My grandfather took the names of the people that cared for him, there were 18 children in all, and all went to different families after my great-grandfather lost his land. The children were separated. He came here to the United States with his caretakers and took their last name, CARUSO. Looking for any information anyone may have on my grandfathers parents and family. Please E-Mail me at Thank you in advance.
