I know her maiden name was Cornacchia but we're not entirely sure what her first name was (possibly Antionetta)
She had a daughter called Grazia (Grace) and her married name is Grace Desilets (married John Desilets +1987) who I can find in searches but no wedding certificate.

She currently lives in Leominster, MA


Hi! I hope you're still using this site, as I just stumbled across this site and I think we may have some relatives in common.

My Great Aunt is Grace Desilets and she lives in Leominster, MA (where my mom's family, the Cornacchia's, are from). My grandfather (Grace Desilet's brother), now deceased, was Anthony (nee Felice) Cornacchia, son of Carmine and Rose Cornacchia. Grace and their brother Mario Cornacchia are still alive. Anthony was the father of seven children, with two sons, so there are many descendants from that branch of the family!

If you are still looking for information, please feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to answer questions and connect with my Great Aunt Grace. I'm very interested in finding out more about my family history!

He was married to Loreta Rossi born March 18, 1879.
they had 7 children---Antonio, Luigi, Pietro, Luciano, Felice, Mary Civita, and Loreto.
If you think any of this fits your family I have birthdates for some of the children. Our family lived in Detroit. I probably cannot answer details about the people. My aunt went to Villa Latina and Atina and got our family history.



Hi yes there seems to be 2 Pasquale Valentes in Detroit. I know my Pasquale dies in 1946 as my G.Father was still young and Pasquale was due to return to Villa Latina. Antonio would be my grandfather and Maria Civita is my cousins mum (also in Scotland). Loreto was in Detroit as was one more brother with one moving to Belgium.

I know Luciano had a Deli/Store in Newark. NI and this is where the leads vanish. Larry died recently as far as I know and the information has stopped due to all the older generations in my family passing away. I know Pasquale died in a railing accident in the 1920's although I can't seem to find any written record of his death.


I looked at Loreto Valente's 1936 manifest again, if this is the correct Loreto he was joining his father Pasquale in Detroit. Are you sure your Pasquale died in the 1920's?

Is this correct?
1936 manifest
page 2

21 Dec 1936 SS Saturnia, Naples to NY
line 2

Loreto Valente 18 (abt 1918)
- single
- born in & last residence Villa Latina (Frosinone, Lazio)
- in Villa Latina, mother Loreta Rossi
- destination Detroit, MI
- not in US before
- joining father Pasquale at 3634 Russell Street


Managed to get a lot together although I still can't find a copy of Pasquales death certificate. He died 21 June 1946. I know he died during his work on the railways but that is about all I know.

Help anyone?

Many of the families from Villa Latina and Atina went to England for a few years--I have found English births on both sides of my husbands family- My husbands aunts say it was because of economic problems in Italy. There was an Italian area around Liverpool and another closer to London--some went back to Italy.

Yes send me an invite to look at your family tree--I will see if I have any information you can add. My husband's aunt Angela Rossi went to Atina/Villa Latina and did a lot of research--but it was very unorganized--I have been putting the pieces together. Carole Rossi

Yes Villa Latina was very, very poor at that time. Both my maternal great grandfathers worked the ships and laboured in the USA while their wives and families stayed back in Villa Latina. It provided a better life for their family where if you watch the trail the majority of the sons moved to join their father when they hit 18. My grandfather who was the baby was in WWII and ended up in the UK after that with his sister following. I know they lived in the UK for a very short time as my great grandmother did not like the UK.

Oddly enough my maternal grandfather was born in PA! I can't seem to find his birth cert although its on his passport/death cert.

Can I ask did Louis (Luigi) start out in MA?

Do you know where I could look to find a PA birth cert? My grandfather is born there, but I cant find him on any records OR his parents arrival to the USA.
Ancestory is bringing up nothing!

Crescenco Palombo born 11 Nov 1980

His parents were Nunziato Palombo and Benedetta Panetta

Ellis Island pulls up nothing :-/
