Coincidence???
Appears to match the children's names,
and location in Napa, but not the parents ...

These folks are from the Napa Valley,
But their parents names are Charlie & Rosalie.
Thanks! vj

A family member compiled an Acquistapace Family Tree here in California that covers most of the Acquistapace imigrants from Italy to the United States.

John (Giovanni), Josephine (Ciapusci), Stella, Mary, Nita, John etc. of Mendocino County, CA. are my relatives.
My grandfather is John Acquistapace (son of John and Josephine). He still lives on what's left of the family ranch with my grandmother Bea. Grandpa is in his 90's and they just celebrated their 70th wedding anniv.

Josephine is the daughter of Mary Florence Noriel and Antone Ciapusci.
The Napa Cty Acquistapace's are of no known relation to the Mendocino Cty Acquistapace's.

rivee wrote:Thanks for the response. The person I'm actually looking for, is the Wife's (Josephine) maiden name, wife of John Acquistapace who were both born in Italy. John was born around 1875 or so and Josephine was born (I believe) around 1893. Don't know where in Italy they were from. They both settled in the wine country (Napa Valley) as dairy farmers in California and had 6 children. Leo, Rusty, Loraine, Alice, Rita, and can't think of the last one.


Ciao...I am connected to this family and would love more information on the birth place of these parents. I am the grandaughter of Rasty Acquistapace. Grazie

See my post earlier on this thread.
The name is typical of the Valtellina and some traces are found near Sondrio. The name is found at least back to 1700.

But having said that, the Acquistapace family that I bought my house from had owned the land it was on since the early 1500's and had built a stable on it. This has devolved over time and forms the foundations of my house.

This is the main area where the Acquistapace are plentiful!

John (Giovanni) Acquistapace came to the United States from Pedesina (province of Sondrio) and moved to Manchester, CA.

(Sorry, I hope I am doing this correctly)
Anywhere on this Acquistapace line is there an Alice, born on August 23 1931 to a Milo Joseph (or Josepe) Acquistapace ?

Hello, I hope you still get this even though you posted your search over 3 years ago. I am also looking for information on the Acquistapace line in California (or at least I think in California, if not this would all be extraordinarily coincidental). Has there been an Alice Josephine Acquistapace, born to a Milo Joseph Acquistapace in your searching?

I have been doing research on Rosalia and Carlo, as they are my grandparents. This summer the family went to Gerola and we were very impressed with the beauty of this wonderful place I have connected with the town genealogist and he has filled me in on my grandfather Carlo Acquistapace b Gerola ancestors to the late 1600's grandmother Rosalia Spandrio bCosio Valtellina to the 1700's. I had taken them back to the early 1800's, so this news was absolutely great!
Is anyone looking for info on this family?

Hello,
This is a little belated response but yes, I have studied many of the Acquistapace Families in Northern California. Many of the families settled in the Central Coast of California and others in Sonoma County and north. My wife's grandmother was an Acquistapace who married a Pedroncelli. They immigrated to Willits, CA about 100 years ago.
I have compiled over 200 names in California and have found it difficult to connect many of them.
Almost all of the families came from Lombardy in northern Italy and a high concentration from Gerola Alta, in the Valtellina area. We visited that town and found almost everyone was named or related to an Acquistapace. We will be returning to that area this year to seek more on the family name. I am most interested in how to get in touch with anyone there who can help with a family search.
Also, I am pleased to share any info I have, if you are interested.
Jack, Santa Rosa, CA

Rosalia SPANDRIO is my grandmother’s sister.
I see they had several children in the States.
I’d like to get in touch with wratchison who is one of their descendants in the states.
