I need help finding the birth place of my grandfather. I heard he came from Torino area.

Here is what I know:


Gratto Alessandro Rossi

Died 2 March 1951
Vandergrift, Pennsylvania

Wife:

Caroline Delaurenti

Died 18 January 1958
Vandergrift, Pennsylvania


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

From Grato Rossi's naturalization record
Rivarolo Canavese, province Torino, region Piedmont

Naturalization Petition for Grato ROSSI
In Vandergrift, Westmoreland, PA in 1930
His occupation is miner
BORN in Rivarollo, Canevezza, Italy [ Rivarolo Canavese, province Torino, region Piedmont] on 10 march 1885
Wife: Caroline – who he married 12 March 1912 in “Ciccogno, Italy” [I will need to search this…could be Ciconio - a neighboring town to Rivarolo Canavese ]
Arrived 13 October 1912 on SS La Provence at New York.

I guess I don't know how to combine "My grandmother" posts with "My grandfather" posts. I'll get help on Monday. Thanks for your patience and help!
